 Title  A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man
This autobiographical view of one of Ireland's most famous writers dwells on his youth in turn of the century Dublin. Here we see the origins of his two most troublesome inner conflicts: politics and religion. Joyce's father, who dabbled in politics, incensed him with what he thought was the pointless and sudden abandonment of Parnell and his plies for Ireland's home rule, from which he developed a disappointment of his fellow Irishmen. Joyce's education by priests created in him a love/hate relationship with Catholicism. He would later abandon both his country and his religion. Link to reviews Click picture
