Transcript of A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange A Clockwork Orange By AnthonY BURGESS "It's funny how the colours of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen" This is my favorite passage out of this novel for one main reasson. It shows that many do not know how to react to real life, and feel more secure reading, watching, or learning about it. Alex is trying to say in this quote, that the movie he is watching feels more real than the real world, and affects him more deeply, seeing the killing than it would if he were still on the streets. Hypodermic Hypodermic: Realting to or located under the epidermis. "Then, about a half our after while I was lying a bit sleepy on the bed, a women nurse came in, a real nice you devotchka with real horrorshow groodies and she had a tray and a hypodermic in hand" The doctor forced the hypodermic neetle through my skin, into the musle. Alex Alex is the main character of the book, and is a young 17 year old boy, who finds ammusment in others pain, whether he torchers them, beats them, or robs them. He does though, have a very strong love for music, mainly Ludwig Van Beethoven, and always is wearing the hight of fashion, as he says. I chose this picture to represent Alex, because it shows him prior to his reformation, at his favorite milk bar, the korova milk bar. He came here to enjoy his spiked drinks, to sharpen him up for a bit of the old, ultra violnce as he would say. The Value taught in this book.. is much diffrent than normal books one might read today. In this book, it questions what it really means to be human. The government in this book, trys to reform Alex through making him fear violnce through the Ludovico Treatment. The preist states to Alex even before he agrees to this treatment "Choice! The boy has not a real choice, has he? Self-interest, the fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. The insincerity was clear to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice.
Imagery in the book There are variouse scences of imagery in this book, but my favorite one, is when Alex's correctional ask him, do i make myself clear? Alex respons "Crystal sir, as clear as an unwanted leg". This is significant to the story because it shows that before his correction, Alex never took thing seriously and would mock, disrespect authoraty at any chance. Pete I belive that i am most like Pete, one of Alex's Droogs. We both avoid internal conflict inside of our group, but are very loyal to all of our friends. Like him, i do not like to pick a side to be on, because i would rather stay loyal to all those loyal to me. The connection to society There is a major connection between the book and society today. Many belive being reformed or changed, is never doing thoes actions agian, but really being reformed is more so being able to think to yourself and choose to do the right thing. Its the ablity to choose is what even makes you human, but like in this book, many think assostiation to physical pain when doing the wrong thing, or brian washing will work. But in reality, you have to be able to choose for yourself. The Theme The theme of clockwork orange is what it really means to be human. There are variouse supporting evidence from the text to show for it
-"So whats it going to be, eh?", Alex. This repeated manytimes throughout the book, but he only accualy means it once. He has become a tool of the government by the end, and always questions himself.
-"Choice! The boy has not a real choice, has he? Self-interest, the fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. The insincerity was clear to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice"Catholic Priest. This is the strongest quote supporting the theme.
-" I woke up. The pain and sickness all over me like an animal. Then I realized what it was. The music coming up from the floor was our old friend, Ludwig Van, and the dreaded Ninth Symphony." said by Alex, coming to the realization that he is barely human now, more of a machin of the government, cant even stand to hear his favorite artist play.
-" I pictured myself, smashing some old malchick, very horrorshow. I was back my brothers, your faithful narrator was well agian." Alex is saying here that he is finaly curred from the horrible treatments preformed on him, and can finally think the thoughts, and preform the actions he wishes, without awful physical pain caused by the treatments.
Ludovico Treatment
A Clockwork Orange is deffinantly one of my favorite movies, and books. It is just very diffrent than most movies shown today. It still dares to question authority, and even question what it really means to be human. Alex trying to asurt his authority Created by: Connor O'Leary
