More About A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce; Langdon Hammer
 
 
 
Overview
A masterpiece of modern fiction, James Joyce s semiautobiographical first novel follows Stephen Dedalus, a sensitive and creative youth who rebels against his family, his education, and his country by committing himself to the artist s life. I will not serve, vows Dedalus, that in which I no longer believe and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can. Likening himself to God, Dedalus notes that the artist remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails. Joyce s rendering of the impressions of childhood broke ground in the use of language. He took on the almost infinite English language, Jorge Luis Borges said once. He wrote in a language invented by himself....Joyce brought a new music to English. A bold literary experiment, this classic has had a huge and lasting influence on the contemporary novel.
