A Clockwork Orange Study Guide

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

A Clockwork Orange introduces teenage Alex, who lives in a world that fears him. Gangs run amok and violently beat, rape, and destroy for fun in this future dystopian Britain; however, this all changes for Alex when he is arrested and sentenced to endure the revolutionary rehabilitation technique of brainwashing. No longer able to commit violence without being physically sick, Alex is now defenseless in a world tailor-made for delinquency. His plight brings up questions of morality and ethics, exploring the grey areas of punishment as related to free will.
