About the book:

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

In his first and still most widely read novel, James Joyce makes a strange peace with the traditional narrative of a young mans self-discovery by respecting its substance while exploding its form, thereby inaugurating a literary revolution.

Published in 1916 when Joyce was al?ready at work on Ulysses, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is exactly what its title says and much more. In an exuberantly in?ventive masterpiece of subjectivity, Joyce portrays his alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, growing up in Dublin and struggling through religious and sexual guilt toward an aesthetic awak?ening. In part a vivid picture of Joyces own youthful evolution into one of the twentieth centurys greatest writers, it is also a moment in the intellectual history of an age.
