📒A Clockwork Orange Restored Text ✍ Anthony Burgess
📝A Clockwork Orange Restored Text Book Synopsis : A newly revised text for A Clockwork Orange’s 50th anniversary brings the work closest to its author’s intentions. A Clockwork Orange is as brilliant, transgressive, and influential as when it was published fifty years ago. A nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature and the basis for Stanley Kubrick’s once-banned film, whose recent reissue has brought this revolutionary tale on modern civilization to an even wider audience. Andrew Biswell, PhD, director of the International Burgess Foundation, has taken a close look at the three varying published editions alongside the original typescript to recreate the novel as Anthony Burgess envisioned it. We publish this landmark edition with its original British cover and six of Burgess’s own illustrations.
📒Stanley Kubrick S A Clockwork Orange ✍ Stuart Y. McDougal
📝Stanley Kubrick s A Clockwork Orange Book Synopsis : Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' brings together critically informed essays about one of the most powerful, important and controversial films ever made. Following an introduction that provides an overview of the film and its production history, a suite of essays examine the literary origins of the work, the nature of cinematic violence, questions of gender and the film's treatment of sexuality, and the difficulties of adapting an invented language ('nadsat') for the screen. This volume also includes two contemporary and conflicting reviews by Roger Hughes and Pauline Kael, a detailed glossary of 'nadsat' and stills from the film.
📒A Clockwork Orange ✍ Peter Kramer
📝A Clockwork Orange Book Synopsis : Stanley Kubrick's futuristic juvenile delinquency movie A Clockwork Orange (1971) is an adaptation of Anthony Burgess' 1962 novel of the same title. Film and novel tell the story of an extremely violent teenager who allows himself to be subjected to aversion therapy (making him unable to indulge his violent and sexual impulses) so as to get out of prison; he then becomes the target of violent attacks and political manipulation which in turn culminate in the removal of his psychological conditioning. Drawing on new research in the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London, Krämer's study explores the production, marketing and reception as well as the themes and style of A Clockwork Orange against the backdrop of Kubrick's previous work and of wider developments in cinema, culture and society from the 1950s to the early 1970s.

📒 A Clockwork Orange In The Context Of Subculture ✍ Maren Volkmann
📝 A Clockwork Orange in the Context of Subculture Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7, Ruhr-University of Bochum, course: Englisches Seminar: Subcultures in Post-War Britain, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In 1974 - just two years after it had opened - the movie “A Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick was banned from Bristish screens. It was Kubrick himself who decided to withdraw the film from distribution in the UK. Since Kubrick received death threats and threatening phone calls he hoped that the controversary would subside with the fading of memory. The film had been blamed for several violent acts and Kubrick and Anthony Burgess, the writer of the novel, were made responsible for them. In fact, the film caused a moral panic because of its violence. However, it seems interesting to me who is behind all this violence. I want to analyse how Alex and his droogs define themselves. Are they rebels without a cause and if not, what are they rebelling against? I will try to take a look at the book and the film in context of subculture: how did subculture influence the works of Burgess and Kubrick, how is subculture presented in their works and how did they influence subculture afterwards?
📒Nadsat In A Clockwork Orange ✍ Kathrin Vogler
📝Nadsat in A Clockwork Orange Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Bamberg (Lehrstuhl fur Englische Literaturwissenschaft), course: Literature into Film - The Case of Stanley Kubrick, language: English, comment: Da es in meiner Arbeit um Sprache geht, habe ichin sehr nah am Originaltext gearbeitet, und viele Zitate in meine Argumentation eingebettet. Dies brachte mir sowohl positive als auch negative Kritik des Dozenten ein: "Besonderes Lob verdient dein sicherer Umgang mit direkten Zitaten aus der Primarquelle. Verstosse gegen das Style Sheet unterlaufen dir kaum. Einzig der Grund fur die geringe Verwendung von Sekundarliteratur leuchtet nicht ein." Also vielleicht einfach etwas umfassender recherchieren..., abstract: The dystopian novel A Clockwork Orange, written by Anthony Burgess, was published in 1962. Stanley Edgar Hyman suggests that "perhaps the most fascinating thing about the book is its language." I agree with him and therefore I set myself to examine this special language called Nadsat in my term paper. The second chapter deals with important features of Nadsat, e.g. its origin. Herein I will touch upon Burgess's inspiration to create a new language for his novel and point out languages that contributed to the evolution of Nadsat. Ongoing I will go further into the question whether Nadsat can be considered being slang by giving a definition of slang, describing reasons for this linguistic phenomenon and naming typical features of it. Furthermore I will have a look at particular words, phrases and motives which are frequently repeated in the novel and explain the reasons for that. The last feature I will pay attention to is how Nadsat handles sexuality. The concern of the third chapter is to find out which function Nadsat holds in the novel. Herein I will distinguish between the language of a criminal and the language of an aesthete with regard to the main character Alex. The fourth and last"

📒Sexplosion ✍ Robert Hofler
📝Sexplosion Book Synopsis : After the sexual revolution came the sexual explosion The six years between 1968 and 1973 saw more sexual taboos challenged than ever before. Film, literature, and theater simultaneously broke through barriers previously unimagined, giving birth to what we still consider to be the height of sexual expression in our pop culture: Portnoy's Complaint, Myra Breckinridge, Hair, The Boys in the Band, Midnight Cowboy, Last Tango in Paris, and Deep Throat. In Sexplosion, Robert Hofler weaves a lively narrative linking many of the writers, producers, and actors responsible for creating these and other controversial works, placing them within their cultural and social frameworks. During the time the Stonewall Riots were shaking Greenwich Village and Roe v. Wade was making its way to the Supreme Court, a group of daring artists was challenging the status quo and defining the country's concept of sexual liberation. Hofler follows the creation of and reaction to these groundbreaking works, tracing their connections and influences upon one another and the rest of entertainment. Always colorful and often unexpected, Sexplosion is an illuminating account of a generation of sexual provocateurs and the power their works continue to hold decades later.

📝 A Clockwork Orange The presentation and the impact of violence in the novel and in the film Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Cologne (Institut für Anglistik), course: Novels and their film adaptations, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: After the release of Stanley Kubrick's film version of "A Clockwork Orange" in 1971, Anthony Burgess's original novel of 1962 and the film were obstinately criticised to be senselessly brutal and it was (and is) said (until today) that both Burgess and Kubrick glorified violence with their works. Although in "A Clockwork Orange", a lot of different themes are dealt with - for example politics, music, art or themes of philosophical nature - the violence in the book and on screen are the most concerned about things when critics write about "A Clockwork Orange". But not only critics, also 'normal' readers (or viewers) regard the violence to be the most remarkable thing about the whole book (or movie). One simply has to look at the website of the internet-bookstore 'Amazon' (www.amazon.de) to see that the main part of the readers' reviews for the book by Anthony Burgess comment on the violence and the brutal crimes committed by the story's protagonists: Alex DeLarge and his 'droogs'. It is interesting that most of the readers that commented on the book also gave a statement about Kubrick's film adaptation. It looks like the whole discussion about violence in "A Clockwork Orange" really first came up when Stanley Kubrick's movie version hit the theatres. But why this violence? Does it stand for itself? Are rape and murder obeyed fetishes of Burgess and Kubrick? Or is there something more in the story, that makes it indispensable to present violence in the extreme way Burgess and Kubrick did? This text will explain the function and the intention of presenting violence in "A Clockwork Orange". It will show the differences between the way of presenting violence in the original novel and the film version and why author and director decided to portray the protagonists' brutality in unlike ways, including the impact they have on the reader and the viewer. This text will conclude that in the novel and the film version, violence in "A Clockwork Orange" serves to discuss other and more important themes included in the story.

📒A Clockwork Orange ✍ Anthoney Burgess
📝A clockwork orange Book Synopsis : Det gör ont att ha en kropp i alla fall om du råkar röra dig på fel gata, på fel sätt, i Anthony Burgess stålhättehårda A Clockwork Orange, romanen som en gång myntade termen ultravåld. Burgess tar oss med på en resa in i en mardrömslik framtid där våldsbesatta gäng styr över den nattliga staden. Han skrev boken efter att hans fru rånats och misshandlats av desertörer från den amerikanska armén i ett mörklagt London under kriget. Vreden över händelsen fick Burgess att reflektera över den mänskliga friheten: Hur fri kan människan tillåta sig att vara när hon också känner sina onda krafter? Och å andra sidan, vad är priset för en inskränkning av friheten? A Clockwork Orange blev en omedelbar klassiker när den gavs ut 1962 och kom att leva ett andra liv med Stanley Kubricks filmatisering 1971. Denna jubileumsutgåva presenterar för första gången boken i sin helhet på svenska, med det ursprungliga slutkapitlet från den brittiska originalversionen. I översättning av Caj Lundgren ANTHONY BURGESS, född i Manchester 1917, död i London 1993, var en engelsk författare och kritiker. Burgess skrev en lång rad romaner, såväl som studier av författare som Shakespeare och Joyce. När tidningen The Times 2008 rankade efterkrigstidens viktigaste brittiska författare placerade de Burgess bland de tjugo främsta. »Det här är en bok som varje generation bör upptäcka.« TIME OUT »En strålande roman.« NEW YORK TIMES »A Clockwork Orange handlar inte bara om människans våldsamma natur och hennes kapacitet att välja mellan gott och ont. Den handlar också om språkets spänningselement och berusande effekter.« DAILY TELEGRAPH »Jag vet ingen författare som gjort så mycket med språket som Mr Burgess har gjort här. Det är dessutom en väldigt rolig bok, vilket ofta glöms bort.« WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS

Excerpt: A Clockwork Orange is a 1971 film written, directed and produced by Stanley Kubrick, adapted from Anthony Burgess's 1962 novella A Clockwork Orange. It features disturbing, violent images, facilitating its social commentary on psychiatry, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian, future Britain. Alex (Malcolm McDowell), the main character, is a charismatic, sociopathic delinquent whose interests include classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and what is termed "ultra-violence." He leads a small gang of thugs (Pete, Georgie, and Dim), whom he calls his droogs (from the Russian, "friend," "buddy"). The film chronicles the horrific crime spree of his gang, his capture, and attempted rehabilitation via controversial psychological conditioning. Alex narrates most of the film in Nadsat, a fractured adolescent slang comprising Slavic (especially Russian), English, and Cockney rhyming slang.

📝The expressionistic style and the theatricality in Stanley Kubrick s A Clockwork Orange 1971 Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Film Science, grade: A, Concordia University Montreal (Mel Hoppenheim School Of Cinema), course: Stanley Kubrick Seminar, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: I don’t know many filmmakers within their films are more pictorial structures than in the films of Stanley Kubrick. In the following essay, “A Clockwork Orange” will be analyzed in terms of expressionism and theatricality. There not only the pictorial structure of the shots, but also the structure of the entire film is very interesting. The film has three main parts. The first one contains Alex’s violent performance, the second is Alex’s cure in jail and the third one is a kind of “the empire strikes back”. Many scenes of the first part come again but in a mirrored version; now Alex is the victim. ”A Clockwork Orange represents the director’s most complete experiment in presenting cinematic material in a subjective mode. (Falsetto, A Narrative and Stylistic Analysis, p. 90) Therefore other characteristics of the film, especially the 1st person voice over, or the point of view shots, are very important to mention in terms of creating this subjectivity. But one of the most important aspects in the film’s subjectivity and theatricality is Alex’s performance. Also the expressionist décor and lightning plays its important part in the film. The expressionistic style is deeply connected with elements of theatricality, in particular through the performance of the actors. Before analyzing “A Clockwork Orange” concerning these elements, I will describe the development of the German expressionism and its historical context in general. After that I will point out the development of theatricality in cinema and in what relation theater stands to cinema.
📒A Clockwork Orange Gewalt Sexualit T Und Moral ✍ Jonas Morgenthaler
📝A Clockwork Orange Gewalt Sexualit t und Moral Book Synopsis : Essay aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 5,5 (CH) entspr. 1,5 (D), Université de Fribourg - Universität Freiburg (Schweiz) (Medienwissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Film "Clockwork Orange" von Stanley Kubrick wurde 1971 uraufgeführt. Das auf dem gleichnamigen Buch von Anthony Burgess basierende Werk wurde gleichermaßen gelobt wie auch verteufelt und gilt heute als Klassiker der Filmgeschichte. Der Film gewann Kritikerpreise und wurde zur gleichen Zeit als gewaltverherrlichender oder -anstiftender Brutalo-Streifen kritisiert. In dieser Arbeit will ich versuchen, den Film auf seine kontroverse Darstellung von Gewalt und Sexualität hin zu untersuchen. Dabei will ich als Schwerpunkt ethische Aspekte behandeln, wobei ich keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit erheben kann. Nach einer kurzen Zusammenfassung, die ich nicht ganz wertfrei halten konnte, werde ich verschiedene Aspekte von Gewalt und Sexualität analysieren, möglichst aus einer ethischen Perspektive. In einem weiteren Kapitel gehe ich näher auf die Figur des Gefängnispfarrers ein. Einige abschließende Bemerkungen am Schluss sollen die Arbeit vervollständigen.

📒A Clockwork Orange ✍ Matthew J. Horner
📝A Clockwork Orange Book Synopsis : Anthony Burgess's novel is more than an exercise in the language of violence: A Clockwork Orange is a satiric testament to an era which recognized the need for social conformities and new scientific discourses as a means to control the revolting youth. The teenage angst and violent rebellion which encompasses the very essence of Burgess's protagonist, Alex, is attributed to the British "Angry Young Man" movement prevalent during the 1950's as a way to show how this literary "voice" ends with the arrival of A Clockwork Orange on the literary scene. By utilizing Alan Sillitoe's novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and three novellas from The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner as a way to lay the foundation for this prolific genre, I will focus on how these novels and their respective heroes gradually progress into A Clockwork Orange, the final "chapter" in this highly influential movement. I also wish to focus on how the anger expressed in Sillitoe's works reaches a pinnacle stance upon A Clockwork Orange's inception as Alex represents the horrific parody of the rebellious youth.
