Project 52- week 8

Sunday, February 23, 2014

I went to library and got a bunch of various books for this project. This week's read is Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce.

" <...> 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."
