EUR€2.13New Kobo Germany
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Künstlerroman in amodernist style, it traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical 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, and culminates with his self-exile from Ireland in Europe.
