Episode Four: Anthony Burgess & His World
This episode of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation Podcast explores Burgess’s cosmopolitanism. Beginning with his formative years in Manchester, Burgess will be revealed as a writer that was intellectually preoccupied by geographic location and how it affects the development of the identity in exile. It also depicts the conflict between Burgess’s identity as a professional writer, and that of ‘The Writer as International Figure’, a personality that he cultivated on television chat shows and in the press.
