A Clockwork Orange
Last year, fans celebrated the 50th anniversary of the ultra-violent novella A Clockwork Orange. Author Anthony Burgess said the work should have been forgotten, but because of Stanley Kubrick's film, it seemed destined to live on. It's the story of the barbaric passions of a British teen and the state's attempt to impose a mechanistic morality over his free-will. Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with the scholar Andrew Biswell about A Clockwork Orange and about why Burgess said the point of the book has been widely misunderstood. (Rebroadcast)
