This chapter is a consideration of the ways in which A Clockwork Orange, both Anthony Burgess’ original novella (1962) and Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation (1971), have been reproduced within youth culture since 1969. Indeed, the chapter suggests that A Clockwork Orange is no longer a prophecy of society’s decline but now a text that encourages cohesion at a time of social fragmentation. Thus, the chapter insists, A Clockwork Orange as a modernist dystopian text, serves to provide inspirational cohesion to globally dis/connected youth in a late modernist world.
