A Clockwork Counterpoint

The music and literature of Anthony Burgess

Paul Phillips

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A monumental work of scholarship that for the first time gives the correct weight to Burgess's muscial composition in his creative output
  • Committed to investigating the strengths of his musical oeuvre, Phillips reveals how the literature is so often indebted to the composition
  • It is the first survey of all of Burgess's music compositions and the first book to include a comprehensive list of all his compositions
  • Erudite, witty and informed, Phillips is an assured guide to Burgess' polymathic attributes
  • By revealing the deep interrelationship between music and literature in Burgess's work, it sheds a whole new light on his writing as well as his music, and is essential reading for anyone interested in truly understanding Burgess as a writer
