Abstract:

"Like his near-namesake of Greek myth, Stephen Dedalus feels himself imprisoned. And like Daedalus, Stephen seeks escape, in his case to throw off the shackles of family, faith, and country that constrain his artistic ambitions. From a callow, lisping infant articulating a child's-eye view of the world, we witness Stephen's uneasy maturation: his intellectual development, spiritual growth, sexual awakening and search for identity. Stephen is Joyce's alter ego, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man describing not merely the agonised liberation of an individual, but the emancipation of the novel itself by a towering figure of 20th century literature."--Cover.
