      Clockwork Orange possesses several interesting features.
      1. Alex was part organic (orange) and part machine (clockwork).
      This may be significant for it indicates the massive complexity of
      basic human nature partially biological and partially spiritual.
      2. At the time of the book's composition the author, Anthony
      Burgess believed his life would end in less than a year.
      3. An individual conditioned to engage only in decent behavior
      has no choice, which renders him/her no longer a person. The padre
      indicated this clearly when he described the grotesque act of self-
      abasement that Alex performed after the treatment. The minister
      claimed he wasn't concerned with the motivations for the higher
      ethics his wish was only to stop crime.
