Anthony Burgess (d. 1993) was a novelist, poet, playwright, composer, linguist, translator and critic. He is best known for his novel A Clockwork Orange (1962). Throughout his career wrote thirty-three novels, twenty-five works of non-fiction, two volumes of autobiography, three symphonies, more than 250 other musical works, and thousands of essays, articles and reviews.
Burgess was a lifelong scholar of Joyce and his book, Here Comes Everybody (1964), the first of his critical books about Joyce, was called by the Observer, "the best study of Joyce that I have ever read."
