Anthony Burgess's Reasons Why America is Falling Apart at the Seams

- At first glance I thought the essay was about the reason why he feels America is falling apart, but after reading more I now understand it better as his posing a question for the reader to answer on his own. Anthony Burgess never really takes a definite side on the topic. He gives many reasons why America is “falling apart at the seams”; on the other hand, he makes it clear that he likes America for what it is and would return. Throughout the essay, Burgess switches tones in order to give the reader a better understanding of his view....   [tags: Anthony Burgess, USA, ]

In a novel, the emotions of an author are manifested as a story of a protagonist and his world. The protagonist is created as the author’s persona, and the setting of the story parallels events from the author’s past. In Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, the protagonist Alex DeLarge is a direct projection of Burgess’s psyche. Analysis of Burgess’s childhood confirms the psychoanalytic theory that Alex and his fictional experiences within A Clockwork Orange are the result of thoughts, fears, and desires that were suppressed by Burgess’s conscious m...   [tags: Psychoanalysis, analytical essays]

The poet Anthony Hecht has taken the Holocaust (more specifically the moving of Jewish orphans to a concentration camp) and made it simple and nostalgic, taking a more calm approach to the subject ("5th August 1942: Warsaw Orphans Leave for Treblinka")....   [tags: holocaust, childhood memory, tragedy]
