The first novel by Irish writer, James Joyce, a portrait of the artist as a young man is a coming-of-age tale about the religious and intellectual awakening of the protagonist. In this semi-autobiographical novel, Joyce examines what distinguishes the individual from the social, religious and cultural, by mapping the ever-changing landscape of the mind. Written in a modernist style, the novel traces the journey of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictitious alter ego of Joyce, with an allusion to the skillful craftsman and artist of Greek mythology. Stephen rebels against the Catholic and Irish mores that govern his upbringing, culminating in his self-imposed exile from Ireland to Europe. American modernist poet Ezra pound had the novel Serialized  in the English literary magazine the egotist in 1914 and 1915. Published as a book in 1916 by B.W. Huebsch of new York, Joyce’s debut novel earned him his place as a frontrunner of literary modernism.
