Not, of course, an actual novel by Anthony Burgess -- more's the pity, I think; for (via this 1972 Paris Review interview with him) it sounds not only fascinating, but like something fairly thoroughly worked-up, at least in a preliminary sense:
INTERVIEWERI wonder what happened to this project, or that 90-page plan? Is it in some archive, somewhere? Wouldn't it be an excellent thing to complete the book, and add posthumously to Burgess's oeuvre?
Do you expect to write any more historical novels?
I’m working on a novel intended to express the feel of England in Edward III’s time, using Dos Passos’ devices. I believe there’s great scope in the historical novel, so long as it isn’t by Mary Renault or Georgette Heyer. The fourteenth century of my novel will be mainly evoked in terms of smell and visceral feelings, and it will carry an undertone of general disgust rather than hey-nonny nostalgia.
Which of Dos Passos’ techniques will you use?
The novel I have in mind, and for which I’ve done a ninety-page plan, is about the Black Prince. I thought it might be amusing blatantly to steal the Camera Eye and the Newsreel devices from Dos Passos just to see how they might work, especially with the Black Death and Crécy and the Spanish campaign. The effect might be of the fourteenth century going on in another galaxy where language and literature had somehow got themselves into the twentieth century. The technique might make the historical characters look remote and rather comic—which is what I want.
