5.0 out of 5 stars Remains one of my favourites, 3 Jan. 2011
This review is from: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
As with other reviewers here, I studied this book as part of my education. With it I fell in love with words, there are passages in this book that beautifully convey the art of writing, the importance and beauty of words and reading in a way no other book can. The story itself is striking, honest and it is a bildungsroman so those expecting a page thriller akin to a thriller will of course not find that with this book. What you will find is a true classic and I would recommend that it be read prior to Ulysses or Finnegan's Wake as this is as stated by a previous reviewer, the most accessible of Joyce's works and will in turn provide a form of key to reading the remainder of his works, with the protagonist making an appearance in Ulysses. This book is Joyce's Bildungsroman as much as Dedalus's, as it shows the development of the mind of this writer.
