Présentation de l'éditeur

Playful and experimental, James Joyce's autobiographical A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a vivid portrayal of emotional and intellectual development. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Seamus Deane. The portrayal of Stephen Dedalus's Dublin childhood and youth, his quest for identity through art and his gradual emancipation from the claims of family, religion and Ireland itself, is also an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce and a universal testament to the artist's 'eternal imagination'. Both an insight into Joyce's life and childhood, and a unique work of modernist fiction, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a novel of sexual awakening, religious rebellion and the essential search for voice and meaning that every nascent artist must face in order to fully come into themselves. James Joyce (1882-1941), the eldest of ten children, was born in Dublin, but exiled himself to Paris at twenty as a rebellion against his upbringing. He only returned to Ireland briefly from the continent but Dublin was at heart of his greatest works, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. He lived in poverty until the last ten years of his life and was plagued by near blindness and the grief of his daughter's mental illness. If you enjoyed A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, you might like Joyce's Dubliners, also available in Penguin Modern Classics. 'There is nothing more vivid or beautiful in all Joyce's writing. It has the searing clarity of truth ... but is rich with myth and symbol'Sunday Times 'James Joyce was and remains almost unique among novelists in that he published nothing but masterpieces'The Times Literary Supplement

To forge in the smithy of his soul a masterpiece 20 janvier 2005
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It begins with "there was a moocow comin down the road" and ends with the famous declaration of the artist's intention," to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race". Its language changes and develops in the course of the telling with the age of the hero and with the situations in which he finds himself. The development in language , the stylistic development externally marks out the internal development of the artist. Through exile, silence and cunning Joyce forged this work a bildungsroman story of his own artistic and spiritual development. It is the story of his rejection of family, of religion, of homeland to find himself in his one true home the vocation of writing of creation in literature in art. There is much memorable brilliance in the work many moving movements the child with the broken glasses before the cruel schoolmaster or the too proud young man denying his mother's religious last wish. All of this tells the story of the artificer Daedalaus and how he will move toward the making of a world of his own in literature.

This book is often difficult to read ( Consider the lower world scene) is complicated in its style but it announces a new and private revelation the great artist's discovery and invention of his own vocation.

Along with Dubliners and in a sense Ulysses, one of Joyce's readable masterpieces.
