PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN

JAMES JOYCE    Book Number: 23812    Product format: Paperback

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's Dubliners and the symbolism of Ulysses, and is essential to the understanding of the later work. The novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence and youth of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in Ulysses, and who comes to realise that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essential bigotry of his background in late 19th century Ireland. Written with a light touch, this is perhaps the most accessible of Joyce's works. 196pp. Paperback.

A hard read, I did not complete the book

I found the book very intense to read and stopped reading it. Perhaps will try to read it in the future.
