A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man

Obliquely autobiographical, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man relates Stephen Dedalus?s emotional and intellectual journey into adulthood, as he struggles to unshackle himself from religion, politics, and the smothering conventions of Irish society. Experimental and innovative in style, pioneering the stream-of-consciousness narrative form, Joyce?s debut novel expertly encapsulates the development of individual consciousness and the role of the artist in society. The perfect introduction to the genius of Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is an early example of some of the author?s famous narrative characteristics that would later be represented in an even more developed manner in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.
