John Anthony Burgess Wilson, FRSL (/ˈbɜːrəs/;[1] 25 Februarie 1917 – 22 November 1993), wat gepubliseer het onder die naam Anthony Burgess, was 'n Engelse skrywer en komponis.

Sy distopiese roman A Clockwork Orange is sy bekendste boek. In 1971 het Stanley Kubrick die verhaal in 'n rolprent omskep.

Burgess het ook meer as 250 musiekwerke gekomponeer; hy beskou homself beide 'n skrywer en komponis, hoewel hy aansienlik meer sukses behaal het met sy boeke.[2]
