Burgess' novels tend to focus on language acquisition, ConLang and NewSpeak, and many are quite incomprehsensible at first as a result. As much as he tried to cast ProtectionFromEditors (preferring the audience to figure things out for themselves), his publishers have consistently managed to sneak in glossaries and explanations.
