A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A narrative about an artist's growth to maturity, 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 and Finnegans Wake.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man began life in 1903 as Stephen Hero—a projected 63-­chapter autobiographical novel in a realistic style.

Com o épico “Ulisses”, sua obra maior, o irlandês James Joyce revolucionou o romance moderno. Transcorrido em um único dia - 16 de junho de 1904 - e em uma só cidade - Dublin -, o enredo de “Ulisses” consegue abarcar toda a gama das emoções e experiências humanas, que o leitor vivencia pelo olhos, ouvidos e entranhas de personagens inesquecíveis, como Leopold Bloom, Stephen Dedalus e Molly Bloom. Esta tradução, primorosamente concebida pela professora Bernardina da Silveira Pinheiro ao longo de sete anos de trabalho, tem a intenção de restituir o grande feito literário do século XX a quem de direito: o leitor. Com o mesmo registro coloquial do inglês usado por Joyce, mas sem abrir mão da riqueza linguística que o consagrou, a linguagem empregada nesta edição privilegia uma dimensão mais humana da obra-­prima do autor, tornando-­a acessível ao maior número possível de leitores.

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 . . .
