Product description

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man portrays Stephen Dedalus's Dublin childhood and youth, providing an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce. At its center are questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive, this coming-of-age story is a tour de force of style and technique.

Review quote

""A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" is in fact the gestation of a soul." -Richard Ellmann "One believes in Stephen Dedalus as one believes in few characters in fiction." -H. G. Wells "[Mr. Joyce is] concerned at all costs to reveal the flickerings of that innermost flame which flashes its myriad message through the brain, he disregards with complete courage whatever seems to him adventitious, though it be probability or coherence or any other of the handrails to which we cling for support when we set our imaginations free." -Virginia Woolf "["A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man "will] remain a permanent part of English literature." -Ezra Pound With an Introduction by Richard Brown
