Obliquely autobiographical, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man relates Stephen Dedalus’s emotional and intellectual journey into adulthood, as he struggles to unshackle himself from religion, politics, and the smothering conventions of Irish society. Experimental and innovative in style, pioneering the stream-of-consciousness narrative form, Joyce’s debut novel expertly encapsulates the development of individual consciousness and the role of the artist in society.

The perfect introduction to the genius of Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is an early example of some of the author’s famous narrative characteristics that would later be represented in an even more developed manner in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet, and is considered to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. Born in 1882, he left Dublin in 1904, but he returned often by consistently setting his famously brilliant and complex novels in the city.

ABOUT THE COVER The concentric circles in Maser’s artwork represent Daedalus’ labyrinth on Crete. The double profile is a response to the warring dualities in Stephen Dedalus, as he battles with the social, religious and political struggles in an Ireland tha t is moving from the old to the new.
