Perhaps Joyce's most personal work, "A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man" depicts the intellectual awakening of one of literature's most memorable young heroes, Stephen Dedalus. Through a series of brilliant epiphanies that parallel the development of his own aesthetic consciousness, Joyce evokes Stephen's youth, from his impressionable years as the youngest student at the Clongowed Wood school to the deep religious conflict he experiences at a day school in Dublin, and finally to his college studies where he challenges the conventions of his upbringing and his understanding of faith and intellectual freedom. James Joyce's highly autobiographical novel was first published in the United States in 1916 to immediate acclaim. Ezra Pound accurately predicted that Joyce's book would "remain a permanent part of English literature, " while H.G. Wells dubbed it "by far the most important living and convincing picture that exists of an Irish Catholic upbringing." A remarkably rich study of a developing young mind, "A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man" made an indelible mark on literature and confirmed Joyce's reputation as one of the world's greatest and lasting writers.

Der beste Einstieg in die Welt des James Joyce Mit dieser in Dublin spielenden, autobiografisch gefärbten Coming-of-Age-Geschichte schrieb sich James Joyce in die Weltliteratur ein. Thematisch steckt in diesem aufsehenerregenden Roman schon ein Großteil dessen, was den berühmten Iren ausmacht: Kunst, Sex, Religion, Rebellion und all die damit einhergehenden Verwicklungen. Ein Junge macht sich auf die Suche nach sich selbst. Anfangs noch ganz im Bannkreis von Konventionen und Autoritäten, entdeckt er nach und nach seine geistigen Fähigkeiten, seine zwiespältige Gefühlswelt und seine Sexualität. Die Hürden seiner Selbstfindung sind vielfältig, muss er sich doch als angehender Künstler von Übervätern emanzipieren. Auch mit der puritanischen Rolle der katholischen Kirche setzt er sich auseinander. Zwischen Moral und Amoral, Anpassung und Auflehnung entwickelt er schließlich den Mut, eigene Wege zu beschreiten. Joyce’ Roman ist ein Spiegelbild der politischen Situation seiner Epoche und ein grandioses Bekenntnis zum freiheitsstiftenden Potenzial der Kunst.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Englisch - Literatur, Werke, Note: 2,0, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Roman ́A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man ́ von James Joyce, der im Jahr 1916 als Roman veröffentlicht wurde, gehört zu einem der bedeutenden Romane seiner Epoche. Im Rahmen dieser Hausarbeit soll zunächst dargestellt werden, welche Entwicklungen der Roman durchlief bis er schließlich zu dem Endprodukt wurde, das wir heute kennen. Dies ist bei diesem Buch besonders interessant, da es zu Beginn nicht als solches konzipiert gewesen war, sondern sich vielmehr über einen Zeitraum von zehn Jahren zu diesem entwickelt hat. Ebenso wie die Entstehung ist auch die Publikation keineswegs eine Gerade gewesen, die ohne Hindernisse und Umwege auskam. In einer für moderne Kunst schwierigen Zeit, kurz vor Beginn des ersten Weltkrieges war es für Joyce alles andere als leicht, Verleger für seine Kunst zu gewinnen. Diesen Hindernissen und der letztendlichen Veröffentlichung des Werkes widmet sich der zweite Teil dieser Hausarbeit. Im abschließenden Kapitel soll an einigen Merkmalen des modernen Romans dargestellt werden, was die Unterschiede zu den Vorgängern sind. Daran anknüpfend wird betrachtet, inwieweit diese Kriterien sich in ́A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man ́ wieder finden und der Roman somit dem modernen Roman zugeordnet werden kann.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Künstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, and culminates with his self-exile from Ireland in Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses. The early youth of Stephen Dedalus is recounted at a vocabulary level of Stephen's own as he grows, in a voice not his own but sensitive to his feelings. The reader experiences Stephen's fears and bewilderment as he comes to terms with the world in a series of disjointed episodes. Stephen attends school at Jesuit-run Clongowes Wood College, where the apprehensive, intellectually gifted boy suffers the ridicule of his classmates while he learns the schoolboy codes of behaviour. While he cannot grasp their significance, at a Christmas dinner he is witness to the social, political, and religious tensions in Ireland involving Charles Stewart Parnell that drives bitter wedges between members of his family, leaving Stephen with doubts over which social institutions he can place his faith in.[16] Back at Clongowes, word spreads that a number of older boys have been caught "smugging"; discipline is tightened, and the Jesuits increase use of corporal punishment. Stephen is strapped when one of his instructors believes he has broken his glasses to avoid studying; prodded by his classmates, Stephen works up the courage to complain to the rector Father Conmee, who assures him there will be no such recurrence, leaving Stephen with a sense of triumph.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man portrays Stephen Dedalus's Dublin childhood and youth, providing an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce. At its center are questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive, this coming-of-age story is a tour de force of style and technique.
