A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN
The portrayal of the Dublin childhood and youth of the artist, Stephen Dedalus, followed by his gradual move away from his family, religion and Ireland itself, mirrors the life of the young James Joyce.
A day in the life of the author's city, Dublin, becomes a wild and joyous celebration of the love of a man for his home town. Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus, come together in a hilarious scene in a brothel. It is as if Stephen takes the place of the son who died when Bloom was a young man and the story becomes a celebration of life itself.
