A masterpiece of modern fiction, James Joyce’s semiautobiographical first novel follows Stephen Dedalus, a sensitive and creative youth who rebels against his family, his education, and his country by committing himself to the artist’s life. “I will not serve,” vows Dedalus, “that in which I no longer believe…and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can.” Likening himself to God, Dedalus notes that the artist “remains within or behind or beyond or above his handiwork, invisible, refined out of existence, indifferent, paring his fingernails.” Joyce’s rendering of the impressions of childhood broke ground in the use of language. “He took on the almost infinite English language,” Jorge Luis Borges said once. “He wrote in a language invented by himself....Joyce brought a new music to English.” A bold literary experiment, this classic has had a huge and lasting influence on the contemporary novel. With an Introduction by Langdon Hammer

James Joyce's 1916 novella A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is about the early manhood of Stephen Dedalus, later one of the leading characters in Ulysses. Stephen's growing self-awareness as an artist forces him to reject the whole narrow world in which he has been brought up, including family ties, nationalism, and the Catholic religion.

A novel written in Joyce's characteristic free indirect speech style, A Portrait is a major example of the Künstlerroman (an artist's Bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions with which he has been raised. He finally leaves for abroad to pursue his ambitions as an artist. The work is an early example of some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later be represented in a more developed manner by Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The novel, which has had a "huge influence on novelists across the world", was ranked by Modern Library as the third greatest English-language novel of the 20th century. James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, Free University of Berlin (Englische Philologie), course: Surveying English Literatures - Sons & Fathers in Modern Autobiography and Fiction, language: English, abstract: The relationship between father and son is picked out as a central theme throughout literary history. In Modernism this topic is paid special attention due to new philosophical and psychological approaches. Ideas like Freud’s psychoanalysis allowed new perspectives on identity that often resulted in a dispute with the previous generation. The conflict between father and son lends itself to portrait this confrontation on a personal level as well as to refer to a wider social context. The concept of patriarchy, the rule of the father, is embedded in every social structure of society: the nuclear family, the Catholic community, the national state. Therefore, contemplation about these bodies metaphorically represents a confrontation with the father. Joyce as one of the major Modernism authors consecrates himself to the topic of father-son-relationships in his autobiographical Künstlerroman A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man . The author seizes the topic to portrait crucial points in the development of the protagonist, Stephen Dedalus. Moreover, the construction of the potential father figures points to the underlying theoretical concept of fatherhood and paternity. Joyce uses the concept of paternity to display his concept of authorship. A discussion of the terms fatherhood and paternity will serve as the foundation of my analysis. A clear distinction between the two terms is helpful in order to descry potential father figures and to differentiate social interaction (fatherhood) from philosophical debate (paternity). Male adults who take the role of a father to Stephen are his biological father Simon Dedalus and the priests of the Roman Catholic Church. Additionally, other father figures appear: Stephen’s namesakes Saint Stephen and Dedalus the Greek artificer. My close examination of the potential father figures will show differences and similarities between them and will give an explanation for either failure (Simon, priests) or success (namesakes) in influencing Stephen’s future. In the second section of my essay I will examine Stephen’s statement about paternity taken from Joyce’s later work Ulysses. My analysis will show that Joyce is not only concerned with the social interaction between father and son. He uses the topic of father-son-relationship to unfold his own theory of paternity and combines it with his ideas about authorship.
