“Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses to be bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?”
In this week’s episode of The Literary Coven, Lily and Courtney explore A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. This dystopian satirical black comedy will have you bewildered. These giggly hosts discuss their humble narrator, Alex, a gang leader who finds bliss in classical music and in committing violent crimes. They’ll also discuss the author, main themes, fascinating plot points, and how women are portrayed in the novel.
