Description
Information
'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' Edited with an Introduction and notes by Seamus Deane.

It is Stephen Dedalus's declared ambition 'to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race'.
'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' (1916) portrays Stephen's Dublin childhood and youth and in doing so, provides an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce. At its centre are questions of origin and source, authority and authorship and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture and race. Exuberantly inventive in its style, the novel subtly and beautifully orchestrates the patters of quotation and repetition instrumental in its hero's quest to create his own character, his own language, life and art.
