Anthony Burgess

John Burgess Wilson (pseudonym Anthony Burgess) (1917–1993) was an English author, poet, playwright, composer, linguist, translator and critic.

His dystopian satire A Clockwork Orange (1962), widely considered to be his magnum opus, is by far his most famous novel, and was adapted into a famous 1971 film by Stanley Kubrick. However, the author later dismissed it as one of his lesser works.
