Anthony Burgess\'s nightmare vision of a society overrun aby nihilistic violence and governed żeby a menacing totalitarian state, A Clockwork Orange includes an introduction żeby Blake Morrison in Penguin Modern Classics.

Fifteen-year-old Alex doesn\'t just like ultra-violence - he also enjoys rape, drugs and Beethoven\'s ninth. He and his gang of droogs rampage through a dystopian future, hunting for terrible thrills. But when Alex finds himself at the mercy of the state and subject to the ministrations of Dr Brodsky, and the mind-altering treatment of the Ludovico Technique, he discovers that fun is no longer the order of the day. The basis for Stanley Kubrick\'s notorious 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange is both a virtuoso performance from an electrifying prose stylist and a serious exploration of the morality of free will.

In his introduction, Blake Morrison situates A Clockwork Orange within the context of Anthony Burgess\'s many other works, explores the author\'s unhappiness with the Stanley Kubrick film version, analyses the composition of the Nadsat argot spoken by Alex and his droogs, and examines the influences on Burgess\'s unique, eternally original style.
