A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical novel by James Joyce, first serialised in the magazine The Egoist from 1914 to 1915, and published first in book format in 1916 by B. W. Huebsch, New York. The first English edition was published by the Egoist Press in February 1917. The story describes the formative years of the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus.

    Попалась на экзамене на 3 курсе) рассказывала преподше про эпифанию. Она аж оторвалась от своей писанины, чтоб на меня посмотреть.
    Джойс - писатель очень на любителей. Немного читала его в 19 лет, скорее просто потому что был в программе, а так вряд ли дочитала бы до конца.

    The past is consumed in the present and the present is living only because it brings forth the future.

    What did that mean, to kiss? You put your face up like that to say good night and then his mother put her face down. That was to kiss. His mother put her lips on his cheek; her lips were soft and they wetted his cheek; and they made a tiny little noise: kiss. Why did people do that with their two faces?
