Burgess, Anthony - A Clockwork Orange - ( Item 124155 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2014. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Burgess's iconic novel, presented in a new edition introduced by Irvine Welsh. 'Goodness is something chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man.' So says the prison chaplain, perhaps the only voice of reason in Anthony Burgess’s most celebrated work. Both a horrific satire of youth culture and an ingenious examination of social justice and government control, A Clockwork Orange has left an indelible, boot-shaped mark on the popular and literary culture of the late 20th century. Stanley Kubrick’s notorious 1971 film — with its iconic imagery and enduring controversies — has overshadowed a work whose philosophical paradoxes and astonishing linguistic invention are some of literature’s most inspired. Bound in textured paper, blocked with a design by Ben Jones. Set in Bembo with Shelton Slab display. 240 pages; frontispiece and 6 colour illustrations. 9½" x 6½". Plain Black Slipcase.
