    Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of a society overrun by nihilistic violence and governed by a menacing totalitarian state, A Clockwork Orange includes an introduction by 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 stateand 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 virtuosoperformance 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 Alexand his droogs, and examines the influences on Burgess's unique, eternally original style.

  • The Catcher In The Rye *

    The Catcher In The Rye *

    Salinger,J.D.
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd.
    The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony'aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it's a novel whoseinterest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all). Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as thoughyou too have seen through the pretences of the American Dream and are growing up unable to see the point of living in, or contributing to, the society around you.Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood, it deals with society, love, loss, andexpectations without ever falling into the clutch of a cliche.Ötven évvel az első magyar megjelenése után új fordításban kerül az olvasók elé Salinger regénye. Főhőse, Holden Caulfield tizenhét éves amerikai gimnazista, akit éppen a negyedik iskolából rúgtak ki. Első személyben mondja el a kicsapása utáni háromnapjának történetét, melyet New Yorkban éjszakai mulatóhelyeken, kétes hírű szállodában s az utcán tölt el. Közben mindent megpróbál, hogy a világgal, az emberekkel normális kapcsolatot alakítson ki, de sikertelenül. Menekül az emberek elől, de mindenütthazug embereket talál. Az egyetlen élőlény, akivel őszintén beszélhet, s aki talán meg is érti valamennyire, titokban felkeresett tízéves kishúga. De ő sem tud segíteni: Holden a történteket egy szanatórium lakójaként meséli el.Salinger regénye nemcsak a kamaszlélek kitűnő, hiteles rajza, hanem a társadalmi konformizmus ellen lázadó ember kudarcának is szimbóluma.

  • Brave New World *

    Brave New World *

    Huxley,Aldous
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    Brave New World is a novel written in 1931 by Aldous Huxley and published in 1932. Set in London in the year AD 2540 (632 A.F.-After Ford-in the book), the novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychologicalmanipulation, and classical conditioning that combine profoundly to change society. Huxley answered this book with a reassessment in an essay, Brave New World Revisited (1958), and with Island (1962), his final novel. In 1999, the Modern Library rankedBrave New World fifth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003, Robert McCrum writing for The Observer included Brave New World chronologically at number 53 in the top 100 greatest novels of all time, and thenovel was listed at number 87 on the BBC's survey The Big Read. What if the future was a tyranny, but one cleverly person intended to keep the mass of society unaware of this? The people would be provided with several distractions, daily life would beruled by sex and drugs, and pervasive mass media would suppress the possibility of any original thought: in such a society the ruling elite would not need to fear any kind of rebellion. If you think that Huxley's vision seems to be the way things are infact turning out, you're not the only one!
