James Joyce’s first novel, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) is a captivating evocation of the emotional, intellectual and creative coming of age of the young Stephen Dedalus, essentially Joyce’s alter ego. The originality and inventiveness of its modernist style prefigures Joyce’s yet more experimental masterpiece Ulysses and offers a profound, poetic insight into Joyce himself as well as a personal journey of awakening and rebellion.
