What s it going to be then eh A linguistic adventure O my brothers I had seen the Kubrick film and so reading the novella was on the list I very much enjoyed it was surprised to learn that American publishers and Kubrick had omitted the crucial last chapter that provides some moral denouement to the ultra violenceAs disturbingly good as this is one aspect that always comes back to me is Burgess creation of and use of the Nadsat language This provides color and mystery to the narrative and it is noteworthy that Burgess intent was to soften the blow of the violent themes of the book 2018 addendum it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a book about which I freuently think This is a book that for me at least is connected to the Stanley Kubrick film I don t always watch a movie after I ve read the book and when I do I usually draw a distinction between the two but these two works remain indelibly connected in my mind and recollection The most noteworthy contrast is the omission of the last chapter from the film Burgess ending provides a settling of accounts while Kubrick s vision leaves the viewer edgy and uncomfortable

In 1960 Anthony Burgess was 43 and had written 4 novels and had a proper job teaching in the British Colonial Service in Malaya and Brunei Then he had a collapse and the story gets complicated But I like the first cool version AB told which was that he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and given a year to live Since as you know he lived a further 33 years we may conclude the doctors were not entirely correct However the doctor tells you you have a year to live what do you do Lapse into a major depression Get drunk and stay drunk Buy a Harley davidson Not if you were Anthony Burgess Uxorious regard for his wife s future security bade him to place his arse on a chair in the unpleasing English seaside town of Hove and type out five and a half novels in the one year left to him which he later pointed out was approximately euivalent to E M Forster s entire lifetime output And the last of these five completed novels was A Clockwork Orange No mean featSo this little novel should be on everyone who hasn t read it s must read list It s a real hoot and it s absolutely eerie in its predictions about youth culture and recreational drug use It s also very famous for its hilarious language all those malenky droogs horrorshow devotchkas and gullivers and lashings of the old in out in out the reader must be warned that it s very catching and you will for sure begin boring all your friends and family about tolchocking the millicents and creeching on your platties and suchlike They ll give you frosty looks and begin avoiding you at the breakfast table but you won t be able to help it In extreme cases they might smeck your grazhny yarbles and that will definately shut you up Reminds me of the old joke where the doctor says to the guy I m sorry to say you only have three minutes to live Guy says Isn t there anything you can do for me Doctor says I could boil you an egg

    A classic probably a bit overrated book and one of the rare cases in which I would say that the movie is better than the book The most unnecessary thing was to add an extra chapter at the end that took the flow logic and atmosphere out of the whole thing Nice development of an own language but also not as cool a

    Rebellion can take on many forms and in A Clockwork Orange it takes on the form of language the spoken word All societies have their constraints though breaking through them is often difficult What the “poor” disaffected youth do here is create their own system of communication that is so utterly theirs Every word carries history and by destroying such words the youngster are proposing a break from tradit
