A Treasure Trove, O My Brothers
on 24 March 2017
'A Clockwork Orange' is a writer's treasure trove of ideas and techniques, and does nothing short of spark the imagination in one's gulliver, O my brothers. Written in nadsat, the teenage slang of the time, a mix of Russian, Cockney Rhyming Slang, and gipsy, 'A Clockwork Orange' is told through the first person perspective of Alex, our humble narrator, who takes us through his story of being compelled and consumed by his love of a bit of the old ultra-violence, a bit of twenty-to-one.
'A Clockwork Orange' is a fable propositioning us with the right to choose between being dobby and being oozhassny, and to not become a clockwork orange ourselves - organic on the outside, but mechanical and working for the machine of what 'authority' wants on the inside, for to be as such is to be soulless, O my brothers.
