The first novel written by famed Irish novelist James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man follows a young man named Stephen Dedalus as he goes from his Jesuit upbringing as a schoolboy to a young man who begins to see the world differently. This religious and intellectual awakening wrapped in Joyce’s shortest novel has been held in high regard since its first serial publication in 1914 and 1915.
