About This Item

This book is undated, but it was published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, so it would be 2016.
James Joyce was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, teacher, and literary critic who is regarded as one of the most important writers of the 20th century. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) is one of his great works. It is a coming-of-age novel, heavily autobiographical, depicting the childhood and adolescence of the artist.

This copy has not been read and the spine is uncracked.Its only flaws are some dappling on the page edges--not on the pages.And, as you can see, there's a little spot on the dust jacket, on the spine, where the paper has been scratched. Otherwise, it's perfect.

Synopsis

Joyce's A Portait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical work. It tells of the intellectual, religious, and philosophical awakening of the main character, Stephen Dedalus as he rebels against the conventions in which he has been raised and leaves home to pursue his artistic ambition.
