The following is a personality profile of Anthony Burgess based on his work.
Anthony Burgess is shrewd and somewhat insensitive.
He is laid-back, he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. He is empathetic as well: he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. But, Anthony Burgess is also unstructured: he does not make a lot of time for organization in his daily life.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for well-being.
He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
