Jim Clarke

The Aesthetics of Anthony Burgess

Fire of Words

€ 114.35


The book is the first full-length text on Anthony Burgess`s fiction in a generation, and offers a radical and innovative way of understanding the extensive literary achievements of one of the twentieth century`s most innovative authors. This book explores Burgess`s dazzlingly diverse range of novels through the one key theme which links them all - the artistic process itself.

Borrowing from Nietzsche`s aesthetic dichotomy of Apollo and Dionysus, the book uncovers the protracted evolution of Burgess`s fiction and offers a unifying theory which links his early postcolonial fiction chronologically, via his modernist experiments like A Clockwork Orange and Nothing Like The Sun, to his late classics Mozart and the Wolfgang and A Dead Man in Deptford.

This volume clarifies Burgess`s seminal role as both late modernist and early postmodernist, and lucidly unveils the legacy of England`s most mercurial novelist.
