Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) may have been the most linguistically- and musically-gifted author working in English during the 20th century. To have this analysis by Burgess--author of A Clockwork Orange, which dealt so profoundly with alienated and violent youth--of the emotionally significant D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), whose works also explored dehumanization caused by modernity, is especially instructive.
SUPERIOR CONDITION overall!
