Аннотация к книге "Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man ***"
Autobiographical in tone, Joyces tale of Stephen Dedalus` journey into adulthood explores the intellectual and moral development of an artist as he struggles to overcome the ingrained Catholic consciousness of his childhood - a family life governed by Irish history, religion and politics. Realistic and innovative in its approach, Joyce expertly encapsulates the development of individual consciousness and the role of the artist in society in what is considered one of his greatest works.

"A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" represent the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce`s "Dubliners" and the symbolism of "Ulysses", and is essential to the understanding of the later work. The novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence and youth of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in "Ulysses", and who comes to realize that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essential bigotry of his background in late 19th century Ireland. Written with a light touch, this is perhaps the most accessible of Joyce`s works.
