9780224010092: Napoleon Symphony

Anthony Burgess draws on his love of music and history in this novel he called “elephantine fun” to write.

A grand and affectionate tragicomic symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte that teases and reweaves Napoleon’s life into a pattern borrowed―in liberty, equality, and fraternity―from Beethoven’s Third “Eroica” Symphony, in this rich, exciting, bawdy, and funny novel Anthony Burgess has pulled out all the stops for a virtuoso performance that is literary, historical, and musical.

Review:

“All of the Burgess embellishments are here, and they sing alluringly each to each.”
- Sara Sanborn, New York Times

“A reader who delights in succulent phrase, the zest of word play and a saucy paragraph must fall on each new work of Anthony Burgess with ravenous appetite. . . . Burgess at his most characteristic, craziest.”
- Washington Post

“One of Burgess’s most important and experimental works.”
- Andrew Biswell, Daily Telegraph

“Alive, lush, lyric, human, witty and wildly comic.”
- Nation
