About This Item

Melbourne, Hutchinson first edition - hard cover in dust jacket In 1944, during the final years of the war, an extra-ordinary court case in Sydney focused attention on the sharp divisions between traditional and modern art in Australia. It was to make a middle-aged painter named Willian Dobell an overnight celebrity and set him on a career where fame and eventual fortune would go hand-in-hand with a personal conviction that he was a great artist. 265 x 215mm., pp. 332, b/w & col. plates t/out, Prizes & Exhibitions, biblio., index. No inscriptions. FINE/NEAR FINE ISBN: 009148040x

Synopsis

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical novel by James Joyce, first serialised in The Egoist from 1914 to 1915 and published in book form in 1916. It depicts the formative years in the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and a pointed allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus. A Portrait is a key example of the Künstlerroman in English literature.
