A Künstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the religious and intellectual 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, culminating in his self-exile from Ireland to Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939)., A portrait of the artist as a young man /James Joyce., A portrait of the artist as a young manJames Joyce., Abridged., Access restricted to subscribing institutions., Artists, Autobiographical fiction., Bildungsromans., CCJ9200, Case, David.|Narrator, CtWfDGIengrdaCtWfDGI, DLCDLC, Digital content provided by hoopla., Donnelly, Donal.|Narrator, Downloadable audio books., Downloadable audio file., Downloadable audio., Downloadable audiobook., Downloadable streaming., Dublin (Ireland), English fiction, English qEnglish., F JOYCE, ITS181 SC 20041105134531.0 ITS ARLITS181 SC 20050125133737.0 ITS ARLITS181 SC 20041105134531.0 ITS ARLLDR506 BNEW 01/03/25 15:46:43, In this largely autobiographical coming-of-age story, James Joyce describes the awakening young mind of a middle-class Irish Catholic boy named Stephen Dedalus. The story follows Stephen's development from his early troubled boyhood through an adolescent crisis of faith-partially inspired by the famous "hellfire sermon" preached by Father Arnall, and partly by the guilt of his own precocious sexual adventures-to his discovery of his ultimate destiny as a poet. Written in a unique voice that reflects the age and emotional state of its protagonist, the novel explores questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. With richly symbolic language and a boldly original style, this most personal of Joyce's works confirms his place as one of the world's greatest writers., Joyce, James, 1882-1941.Portrait of the artist as a young manPrince Frederick, Md. : Recorded Books, p1991., Joyce, James,1882-1941., Joyce, James., LDR504 LTI 97/04/30 10:00:3ITS56 car 20060418131622 ITS ACPL4ITS181 SC 20050125133736.0 ITS ARLITS181 SC 20041105134525.0 ITS ARLLDR506 BNEW 01/03/25 15:46:43, MWT10078333, MWT11104883, MWT11104884, MWT11851969, Midwest, Midwesteengrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Mon Nov 24 2014: Bill $20.00, lost by .p10078617Mon Nov 24 2014: Paid $20.00 and lost by p10078617-1- -11-24-2014 19:47, Mon Sep 16 2013: $17.00 paid by .p1089816-1- -09-15-2017 14:29, Narrated by Donal Donnelly., New York :Modern Library,1996., Norton, Jim., Norton, Jim.|Narrator, O'Brien, Gerry,Narrator., OCLC Holdings Updated 20110802, PR6019.O9P63 2011b, Portrait of the Artist as a Young ManJames Joyce., Prince Frederick, Md. :Recorded Books ;[2011], Publisher varies., Read by Frederick Davidson., Read by Gerry O'Brien., Read by Jim Norton., Recorded Books classics library., Requires OneClick Digital Media Manager., Stephen Dedalus, a sensitive and creative youth, rebels against his family, his education, and his country by committing himself to the artist's life., Stephen Dedalus, the novel's hero, rejects both the asceticism of religion and the excess of hedonism in order to find and form his artistic temperament., Streaming audio., Streaming audiobook., System requirements: 200 MB of free disk space, 512 MB of RAM, Windows Installer 3.1, Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (x86 and x64), Windows Media Player 10 QA., Title from title screen (viewed April 27, 2011)., Unabridged., VIAC, Y/CL JOYCEThu Jul 27 2017 05:24PM: IN TRANSIT from mmdvol to cyfcl-2- -07-27-2017 17:24, Young men, Z2301Recorded Books, [Prince Frederick, Md.] :[Distributed by] OneClick Digital,[2011], [United States] :Author's Republic :Made available through hoopla,2016., [United States] :Blackstone Audio, Inc. :Made available through hoopla,2011., [United States] :Naxos :Made available through hoopla,1995., [United States] :Naxos :Made available through hoopla,2005., aaf(5)cafcyf(2)hafsafwaf01-25-11ma-, analog, audios, computerc, data file, digital, e-ie---, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/aut_9781518938269_180.jpeg, ocm34598096, online resourcecr, othersz, qBook., qFiction., qafea05-02-17mn-, qafea06-08-17mn-, qafea06-10-15mn-, spoken wordspw, vii, 347 p. ;20 cm., ℗1991.
