The portrayal of Stephen Dedalus's Dublin childhood and youth, his quest for identity through art and his gradual emancipation from the claims of family, religion and Ireland itself, is also an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce and a universal testament to the artist's 'eternal imagination'.

A highly autobiographical tale of the growth of a young man's mind, and his striving for independence.From the Back Cover:
Published in 1916, 'A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man' follows the progress of Stephen Dedalus from infancy to early manhood. The richness of the language and Joyce's mastery of literary style as he describes the Dedalus family, young Stephen's education by the Jesuits, his sexual awakening, his intellectual development and his eventual revolt against the religion in which he has been raised have ensured the novel's place as one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century literature.
John Lynch has appeared in 'Cal, Railway Station Man' and 'Hardware'.
