9780141197968: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

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'.

Review:

"Joyce's depiction of the early Dublin life of Stephen Dedalus towers over modern literature, providing a stylistic blueprint and creative touchstone for artists young and old" ( Guardian)

"It's damn well written" (Ezra Pound)

"There is nothing more vivid or beautiful in all Joyce's writing. It has the searing clarity of truth...but is rich with myth and symbol" ( Sunday Times)

"James Joyce is my favourite novelist...Once I had read [this] I knew that I could never create anything that even came close to Joyce's magic" (James Patterson Sunday Express)

Book Description:

A highly autobiographical tale of the growth of a young man's mind, and his striving for independence.
