    Yeah I understood what was going on with the ludovico technique and that he's nuts I was just curious as to whether there was any symbolic meaning to the 9th symphony, like why that and not something else, is it a reference to something?

    Not really a reference, it's mainly just due to the fact that he loves classical music and it causes him to become more violent. It's a confusing concept, I don't even think the book describes it in too much detail because I've read it so many times.

    this might help. it's probably a coincidence.

    Also, 9th Symphony, I think, wasn't written in the book.

    I think it's probably fair to say that the book and the film are different works in their own right, even if they are obviously very related

    and yeah the stuff in there was interesting but not very insightful, it doesn't explain any reason why it was beethoven or the 9th symphony, just points out a whole load of inidcations that it's important lol
