A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Novel by Джеймс Джойс


This fictionalised portrait of Joyce1s youth is one of the most vivid accounts of the growth from childhood to adulthood. Dublin at the turn of the century provides the backdrop as Stephen Dedalus moves from town and society, towards the irrevocable decision to leave. It was the decision made by Joyce himself which resulted in the mature novels of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. Read unabridged by the incomparable Joyce expert, Jim Norton.

I read this book as an intro to Ulysses and for that it served its purpose but it was not necessary to do.
