A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange


by Anthony Burgess

Dim, Georgie

Character Analysis

Dim and George first are members of Alex's gang. Dim is the strong and dumb one that has a problem with Alex's authority. Georgie is the smarter and ambitious one that leads the rebellion against Alex for the sake of financial gain. Both are traitors to Alex: Dim incapacitates Alex at the Manse site, leading to his arrest, and ultimately becomes a police officer, thanks to the program introduced by the Minister of the Interior. In this position, he gets even with Alex. Georgie dies in a later raid.
