About The Book

The journey of a mind strained with religion, family, and culture to the portrait of a mind that has achieved emotional, intellectual, and artistic adulthood . . . Under a father’s powerful influence, bullied by peers at school, Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter-ego of Joyce, must grapple through the pleasures and pains of adolescence to experience psychological, sexual, and spiritual discoveries. Setting his mind on a self-imposed exile eventually, he lives a life devoted to the art of writing, casting off all his social, familial, and religious constraints. Rushing you back and forth through sudden disruptions, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Joyce’s autobiographical novel, traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of Stephen. Giving an insight into the development of a literary genius, this novel is regarded as one of the 100 best English novels of the 20th century. As you wade through Stephen Dedalus’ aesthetic experiences and epiphanies, you will be coaxed into thinking of your moment of profound revelation.

About The Author

James Joyce (1882 – 1941) was born in Dublin, Ireland, to a well-meaning but financially inept father and a solemn, pious mother. One of the most revered writers of the 20th century, he was noted for his experimental use of language in his works. His first publication, an essay on Ibsen’s play, appeared in the Fortnightly Review in 1900. In 1904, he made his first attempt at a novel, Stephen Hero, and also attempted to publish A Portrait of the Artist, an essay story dealing with aesthetics, only to have it rejected. At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved to Zurich, where he wrote Exiles, reworked the early chapters of Ulysses, and published A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in serial form. It appeared in twenty-five installments in The Egoist. Almost a complete rewrite of the abandoned Stephen Hero, it is heavily autobiographical incorporating the techniques of stream of consciousness and interior monologue. Joyce died in 1941 at the age of 59.
