A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess – watch online

Our BookTalk discussion of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange is now available online. It joins our burgeoning archive of material, which includes talks on Graham Greene, Shirley Jackson, Jane Austen and many others.

Huge thanks go out to this month’s guests. Bill Bell guides us through the history of literary utopias, while Christine L. Gengaro, author of Listening to Stanley Kubrick: The Music in His Films, explores the importance of music in A Clockwork Orange. Finally, Andrew Biswell, director of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation and author of The Real Life of Anthony Burgess, takes us through the multiple linguistic strata of Burgess’ writing.

The session is introduced by Anna Mercer and the Q&A moderated by Colin Bond.

Dont forget, as a tie-in with this event, Snowcat Cinema in Penarth are screening Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange tomorrow evening, Thursday 17 February. Book your tickets here: https://www.snowcatcinema.co.uk/listings/2022/02/17/orange
