    I offer the following as a contribution to such investigation. Source: www. It is, however, the author's choice of his character's family name — Dedalus — which reveals to readers the source of the novel's greatest thematic parallel. It is possible that Stephen's surname also reflects the labyrinthine quality of Stephen's developmental journey in Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

    When Joyce began writing Ulysses inhe decided to continue the story of Stephen Dedalus. Stephen is strapped when one of his instructors believes he has broken his glasses to avoid studying, but, prodded by his classmates, Stephen works up the courage to complain to the rectorFather Conmee, who assures him there will be no such recurrence, leaving Stephen with a sense of triumph. Daedalus, an architect commissioned by King Minos, designed an elaborate labyrinth in which the king planned to confine the monstrous Minotaur. Away with God! Mirroring his mythological namesake, Daedalus or Daidalos in the Greek pronunciation and transliterationwhom Ovid described in the Metamorphoses VIII as being shut up in a tower to prevent his knowledge of the labyrinth from spreading to the public, Stephen is introduced taking breakfast in the Sandycove Martello tower in Dublin on the morning of 16 June No one familiar with Joyce's biography is unaware that he knew a good deal of philosophy.

    The economic and intellectual conditions that prevail in his own country do not permit the development of individuality. He takes the reader into both the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, showing him the subjective and the objective realities of a situation. Plot Overview Summary Plot Overview A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man tells the story of Stephen Dedalus, a boy growing up in Ireland at the end of the nineteenth century, as he gradually decides to cast off all his social, familial, and religious constraints to live a life devoted to the art of writing. Stephen resolves to live his life to the fullest, and vows not to be constrained by the boundaries of his family, his nation, and his religion.

The reader experiences Stephen's fears and bewilderment as he comes to terms with the world [16] in a series of disjointed episodes. Stephen becomes increasingly repelled by the dead-end realities of Dublin life.

Like Joyce in the yearsStephen has decided to become a writer; he has introduced himself to A portrait of the artist as Proteus book of the leading figures on the Dublin literary scene ; he has moved to Paris to escape Irish provincialism; and, after receiving news that his mother is dyinghe has returned home to a life of less glamorous poverty and very uncertain prospects.

You talk to me of nationality, language, religion. Deeply shaken, the young man resolves to rededicate himself to a life of Christian piety. For a while, he ignores his religious upbringing, throwing himself with debauched abandon into a variety of sins—masturbation, gluttony, and more visits to prostitutes, among others.

And this may have repercussions for philosophy; might it 21 22Philosophy and Literature not be possible that a great imaginative writer can tell us something about a philosophical view which we could not have known otherwise?

Stephen is essentially Joyce's alter ego, and many of the events of Stephen's life mirror events from Joyce's own youth. And Bloom knows about it.

Cranly — Stephen's best friend at university, in whom he confides some of his thoughts and feelings. Let me begin by considering a passage from the beginning of chapter three of Portrait pp.

This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. At the end of chapter two Stephen has just been exposed to the dark swoon of sin why "dark," and why a "swoon," we shall see later. Stephen constructs Emma as an ideal of femininity, even though or because he does not know her well.

Thus the artist, already feeling isolated, is increasingly aware of a certain growing, painful social alienation. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery. Joyce's hero identifies with his patron's martyrdom by recalling an early reprimand against marrying a Protestant, the unjust pandying incident, and a variety of instances wherein he was ostracized or made to feel guilty by his peers and older people.

He sets his mind on self-imposed exile, but not without declaring in his diary his ties to his homeland: [27] Mathematical imagery is central to this passage, and most important in Ulysses; I should like to suggest some reasons.

Joyce reveals these tumultuous adolescent feelings through a narrative technique called stream-of-consciousness. No one familiar with Joyce's biography is unaware that he knew a good deal of philosophy.
