A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Ulysses

James Joyce was an Irish expatriate author of the 20th century. He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses [1922] and its controversial successor Finnegans Wake [1939], as well as the short story collection Dubliners [1914] and the semi-­autobiographical novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man [1916].
Although he spent most of his adult life outside Ireland, Joyce's psychological and fictional universe is firmly rooted in his native Dublin, the city which provides the settings and much of the subject matter for all his fiction. In particular, his tempestuous early relationship with the Irish Roman Catholic Church is reflected through a similar inner conflict in his recurrent alter ego Stephen Dedalus.

Dublinersis a prestigious collection of short stories. Set in the twenties and thirties of the Dublin scenes, it intercepts the lower class's daily lives. With fifteen stories brought together, it's just like an impressionist painting, with concise brush strokes, emerging a desolate world state, distant, cold, however refined, the best product of all. This fifteen stories reflects realism and ironic portrayal of middle and lower classes' life in the early twentieth century Dublin.

-­Included TOC for Reader. -­Included biography the author. -­Free Audiobook link for download. is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-­understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, . . .

Scritti da James Joyce nel 1906, ma pubblicati soltanto nel 1914, perché ritenuti da molti editori troppo audaci, i quindici racconti che costituiscono il volume "Gente di Dublino" sono considerati tra i capolavori della letteratura del Novecento. I protagonisti sono abitanti della città di Dublino, che vengono raffigurati nella loro quotidianità, e il tema che unisce tutti i racconti è la "morte in vita". I personaggi descritti da Joyce sono infatti frustrati, destinati a fallire o rinunciatari e l'ambiente in cui si svolgono le vicende è sempre squallido e desolato. Alcune volte un'improvvisa illuminazione o una rivelazione rendono palesi ai personaggi le misere condizioni in cui versano, ma per loro è sempre impossibile uscirne, perché vittime di una "paralisi morale". Le storie possono essere suddivise in quattro sezioni, che rappresentano le diverse fasi della vita umana: l'infanzia (Le sorelle, Un incontro, Arabia), l'adolescenza (Eveline, Dopo la corsa, I due galanti, . . .

Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. It is considered to be one of the most important works of Modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking.­"However, even proponents of Ulysses such as Anthony Burgess have described the book as "inimitable, and also possibly mad". Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (e.­g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to . . .

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a nearly complete rewrite of the abandoned novel Stephen Hero, the original manuscript of which Joyce partially destroyed in a fit of rage during an argument with Nora, who asserted that it would never be published. A K nstlerroman, or story of the personal development of an artist, it is a biographical coming-­of-­age novel in which Joyce depicts a gifted young man's gradual attainment of maturity and self-­consciousness; the main character, Stephen Dedalus, is in many ways based upon Joyce himself. Some hints of the techniques Joyce was to frequently employ in later works such as the use of interior monologue and references to a character's psychic reality rather than his external surroundings are evident in this novel. Joseph Strick directed a film of the book in 1977 starring Luke Johnston, Bosco Hogan, T.­P. McKenna and John Gielgud.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
