Anthony Burgess from A Clockwork Orange
Born 25th February 1917. The author who will always be remembered for his eighth book, The Clockwork orange, was born Jack Wilson in a small house in Harpurhey, the son of a bookkeeper and part-time pianist, and the musician/dancer he met at the Ardwick Empire. When he was a baby he was found lying in his cot with his mother and sister dead beside him, both victims of Spanish flu. Burgess went to Bishop Bilsborrow Primary School, Moss Side, Xavarian College, and Manchester University, spent six years as a war-time soldier, and then went into education, eventually becoming education officer in Malaya and Brunei. Invalided at home in 1959 with a terminal illness, he became a professional writer in the hope that in his final year he would provide some security for his wife. The medical diagnosis was wrong, and Burgess stayed with his new carreer, writing more than 30 novels and other books. This prolific and often controversial writer once created a storm when he returned to his native city and said: "As a piece of civic planning, or rather unplanning, I think it's terrible."

The other Burgess biography is Roger Lewis's contrvoersial "Anthony Burgess: A Life". Lewis who has written biographies on several other subjects including actors Charles Hawtrey and Peter Sellars.

Biography, Works
Anthony Burgess, who was born on Feb. 25, 1917, and died on Nov. 25, 1993, who also published as John Burgess Wilson and as Joseph Kell, was a versatile translator, musician, and comic novelist whose inventive use of language and taste for parody reflected his interest in James Joyce, about whom he wrote in Re Joyce (1965). He is perhaps best known for his futuristic novel A Clockwork Orange (1962; film, 1971). Raised a Roman Catholic in Manchester, England, he was trained as a composer and frequently used musical forms in his fiction, such as Napoleon Symphony: A Novel in Four Movements (1974). After serving in the British Army in World War II, he became a teacher and education officer, first in England (1950-54) and then in the Far East (1954-59), the setting of Time for a Tiger (1956), his first published novel. Sent back to England with a supposedly fatal brain tumor, he wrote five books in a year. His many other books include such novels as The Right to an Answer (1960), Enderby Outside (1968), and MF (1971); fictional (Nothing Like the Sun, 1964) and factual (Shakespeare, 1970) biographies of Shakespeare; variations on the Oedipus legend; and critical studies of literature, such as Flame into Being: The Life and Work of D. H. Lawrence (1985). The first volume of his autobiography, Little Wilson and Big God, was published in 1987.

    Served in World War II, then became an education officer in the far east before beginning to write.
    Did you know? He took up writing to provide security for his widow-to-be when he was diagnosed with a terminal illness - and went on to produce an embarrassment of novels, criticism, symphonies and scripts. Critical verdict Burgess saw writing very much as a trade, accepting Samuel Johnson's dictum that only a fool ever wrote, except for money; he considered that his reputation for readability over brilliance stemmed from his prolific dabbling, encompassing reviewing, criticism, history, poetry, librettos and symphonies as well as novels (his oeuvre includes a coffee-table history of sleep, And So To Bed). As he said, "The trouble began with Forster. After him it was considered ungentlemanly to write more than five or six novels." He will always be most famous for a Kubrick-coloured perception of A Clockwork Orange's ultraviolence, though William Burroughs, another linguistic experimenter, said of the novel: "I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language as Mr Burgess has done here.

    Page which includes many links to other burgess sites, reviews, interviews and dedicated clubs
    Anthony Burgess
    British novelist, composer, librettist, essayist, semanticist, translator and critic, Anthony Burgess published over 50 books. In a 1973 interview in The Paris Review about the art of fiction, he said, "The ideal reader of my novels is a lapsed Catholic and failed musician, short-sighted, color-blind, auditorily biased, who has read the books that I have read."
    His best-known novel, A Clockwork Orange (1962), offered a bleak vision of a violence-ridden future. It follows a murderous, Beethoven-loving teen-age gang leader in complacent and conformist society. Roving bands of delinquents fight, steal and rape to assert their freedom against the conformity of a clockwork society. The brutality depicted in A Clockwork Orange emerged after an assault on Burgess's wife during the war that resulted in the loss of their expected child. She died 1948. The movie version of the novel, directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1971, encountered heavy criticism - some of its violent scenes were said to have inspired real-life violence by gangs of hoodlums - and was eventually withdrawn by its producers and distributors. After graduating from Manchester University in 1940, Burgess joined the British Army Education Corps where he served as musical director of a special services unit, entertaining troops in Europe.
