Clockwork Orange Essay, Research Paper

The movie A Clockwork Orange takes place in the future of London. Anthony

Burgess originally wrote it. Later on made into a movie, and directed by

Stanley Kubrick. The movie is to represent ultra-violence and how there is no

scientific cure yet. The social context is very violent in the beginning

showing scenes of rape and assault. The movie shows a violent killer and

rapist, and an attempt to cure him that fails.

The author of A Clockwork Orange is Anthony Burgess, also went by the name

Joseph Kell. He was born on February 25, 1917, in Manchester. His family was

middle class, and their religious background was Catholic. His family life was

not easy. His father was a cashier and piano player. His mother died of the flu

in 1919, two years after he was born.

So with his mother gone and his father not doing to great financially, his

maternal aunt then raised him. His stepmother then raised him. Despite the

many changes in where he was living, he always was good in school. He continued

his studies at Xaverian College and Manchester University.

When in college he studied the English language, and literature. He finished

school in 1940, which was right around World War II. So he now had to serve at

the Royal Army Medical corps. He fell in love and got married in 1942, to an

alcoholic named llwela Isherwood, who passed away in 1968 due to alcohol.

Burgess was released from the medical corp. around 1945, and then started

teaching. He held down to jobs from 1946 to 1950. The jobs were a college

professor at Birmingham University and a teacher at Banbury Grammar School. He

was not writing that much at this point, only studying music.

Anthony Burgess completed his first novel in 1949, although it was finished, it

was not published until 1965. In 1954 he was an education officer, he then

wrote a trilogy. This trilogy included Time for a Tiger, The Enemy in the

Blanket, and Beds in the East.

By 1959, Anthony Burgess was devoted totally to writing. He lived all over in

places such as Italy, the United States, and Monaco. He wrote eleven novels

from 1960-1964. In 1962 he put out A Clockwork Orange which made him famous.

Burgess’s novel was a best seller, and then made into a hit film. Stanley

Kubrick directed the film.
