9780142437346: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Penguin Classics)

James Joyce's coming-of-age story, a tour de force of style and technique
The first, shortest, and most approachable of James Joyce s novels, "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man"portrays the Dublin upbringing of Stephen Dedalus, from his youthful days at Clongowes Wood College to his radical questioning of all convention. In doing so, it provides an oblique self-portrait of the young Joyce himself. At its center lie questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive in style, the novel subtly and beautifully orchestrates the patterns of quotation and repetition instrumental in its hero s quest to create his own character, his own language, life, and art: to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.
This Penguin Classics edition is the definitive text, authorized by the Joyce estate and collated from all known proofs, manuscripts, and impressions to reflect the author s original wishes.
For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators."

Product Description:

Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Persian (Farsi) thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce was edited for three audiences. The first includes Persian (Farsi)-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL? or TOEIC? preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Persian (Farsi) speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Persian (Farsi) in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement? (AP?) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Persian (Farsi) Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Persian (Farsi) or English.
