This is a list of works by the English novelist Anthony Burgess.


That so many writers have been prepared to accept a kind of martyrdom is the best tribute that flesh can pay to the living spirit of man as expressed in his literature. One cannot doubt that the martyrdom will continue to be gladly embraced. To some of us, the wresting of beauty out of language is the only thing in the world that matters.

— Anthony Burgess, English Literature (ch. 21 of 1974 edition)
