Publisher's Synopsis

This book brings together a diverse range of contemporary scholarship around both Anthony Burgess's novel (1962) and Stanley Kubrick's film, A Clockwork Orange (US 1971; UK 1972). This is the first book to deal with both together offering a range of groundbreaking perspectives that draw on the most up to date, contemporary archival and critical research carried out at both the Stanley Kubrick Archive, held at University of the Arts London, and the archive of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. This landmark book marks both the 50th anniversary of Kubrick's film and the 60th anniversary of Burgess's novel by considering the historical, textual and philosophical connections between the two. The chapters are written by a diverse range of contributors covering such subjects as the Burgess/Kubrick relationship; Burgess's recently discovered 'sequel' The Clockwork Condition; the cold war context of both texts; the historyof the script; the politics of authorship; and the legacy of both-including their influence on the songwriting and personas of David Bowie!
