Summary
This book provides readers with a collection of essays and in-depth discussions of author, James Joyce. Joyce used for the novel's protagonist's name an alternate spelling of Stephen Daedalus, the pseudonym he himself employed in the serial publication of his first short stories. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man concerns the only partially successful struggles of young Stephen to escape the traps and misperceptions that the worlds into which he is born impose on him.
