A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Paperback
by James Joyce
Edited by Hans Walter Gabler
This title provides with introductions by Dr Dieter Fuchs and Joseph O'connor.
Against the backdrop of nineteenth century Dublin, a boy becomes a man: his mind testing its powers, obsessions taking hold and loosening again, the bonds of family, tradition, nation and religion transforming from supports into shackles; until the young man devotes himself to the celebration of beauty, and reaches for independence and the life of an artist.
