Anthony Burgess - Cutting A Clockwork Orange

Anthony Burgess - Cutting A Clockwork Orange This article notes the outrage that accompanied its publication, but that\'s not something that impacted on us when we read it 20 years later. Such a generational thing, I guess. I remember reading it in highschool, almost exactly 22 years ago (May 1982) and not finding any glorification of violence at all. Alex and the d00ds were just victims trying to make sense of the world that had no space for or interest in them. It sounded like us, but it wasn\'t anything to emulate. Too late, we were there already looking for ways out. It just reflected the world around us. But then again, we, in Canada, had the full text. :)"
