A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A K<U+00fc>nstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the religious and intellectual awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, culminating in his self-exile from Ireland to Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939).

It depicts the formative years in the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and a pointed allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus. A Portrait is a key example of the Künstlerroman (an artist's bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions he has been brought up in. He finally leaves for Paris to pursue his calling as an artist. The work pioneers some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later come to fruition in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The Modern Library ranked Portrait as the third greatest English-language novel of the twentieth century., A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Knstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the religious and intellectual awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, culminating in his self-exile from Ireland to Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939)., A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's "Dubliners" and the symbolism of "Ulysses", and is essential to the understanding of the later work, A portrait of the artist as a young man /James Joyce ; foreword by Ove Knausgaar ; edited with an introduction and notes by Seamus Deane., A portrait of the artist as a young manJames Joyce., Abridged., Artists, Autobiographical fiction., Bildungsromans., Case, David.|Narrator, Digital content provided by hoopla., Dublin (Ireland), English fiction, FIC JOYCE, FIC019000FIC043000FIC004000, FICTION / Classics, FICTION / Coming of Age, FICTION / Literary, Feedbooks1916, General Fiction, General Fiction; Literary, IG$A, In this largely autobiographical coming-of-age story, James Joyce describes the awakening young mind of a middle-class Irish Catholic boy named Stephen Dedalus. The story follows Stephen's development from his early troubled boyhood through an adolescent crisis of faith-partially inspired by the famous "hellfire sermon" preached by Father Arnall, and partly by the guilt of his own precocious sexual adventures-to his discovery of his ultimate destiny as a poet. Written in a unique voice that reflects the age and emotional state of its protagonist, the novel explores questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. With richly symbolic language and a boldly original style, this most personal of Joyce's works confirms his place as one of the world's greatest writers., James Joyce’s first novel, hailed as one of the greatest works of the twentieth century, about a young Irishman’s growth into artistic adulthood A semiautobiographical story mirroring Joyce’s own coming of age, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man begins when Stephen Dedalus is still a young boy. Living with his family in Dublin, Stephen’s first brush with the larger world occurs at boarding school, an unhappy time that he is eager to leave behind. Once home, however, life takes on a somber new tone as his father descends into alcoholism and his family’s finances dwindle. Joyce details young Stephen’s encounters with the Catholic Church, Irish politics, sexual experimentation, and coming-of-age in the twentieth century.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's Dubliners and the symbolism of Ulysses, and is essential to the understanding of the later work. This novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in Ulysses, and who comes to realize that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essential bigotry of his background in late 19th century Ireland.
