Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" brings together new and critically informed essays about one of the most controversial films ever made. A suite of essays examine the literary origins of the work, the nature of cinematic violence, questions of gender and the film's treatment of sexuality, and the difficulties of adapting an invented language ("nadsat") for the screen. This volume also includes two contemporary and conflicting reviews by Roger Hughes and Pauline Kael, a detailed glossary of "nadsat" and stills from the film.
