A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Summary

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce

James Joyce's first novel follows the life of Stephen Dedalus, an artistic and fiercely individual young man. Along the way, Stephen learns to negotiate the 'snares of the world', to avoid the pitfalls of his dysfunctional family, his terrifying and repressive boarding school, and the various beautiful young ladies who capture his heart. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is an unforgettable depiction of childhood and adolescence, as well as a lyrical evocation of life in Ireland over a century ago. It shocked readers on its publication in 1916 and it is now regarded as one of the most significant literary works of the twentieth century.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man features an afterword by Peter Harness.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

About James Joyce

James Joyce (1882-1941) was born into a reasonably wealthy Dublin family that was plunged into financial hardship. Educated at University College, Dublin, he met Nora Barnacle in 1904, and they eloped to Croatia. For the rest of his life he lived as an exile moving from Trieste to Rome, Zurich and Paris. His major works are Dubliners (1914), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), Ulysses (1922) and Finnegan's Wake (1939), and he is regarded as one of the greatest novelists the world has ever produced.
