A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Borrow Borrow

This fictionalised portrait of Joyce’s youth is one of the most vivid accounts of the growth from childhood to adulthood. Dublin at the turn of the century provides the backdrop as Stephen Dedalus moves from town and society, towards the irrevocable decision to leave. It was the decision made by Joyce himself which resulted in the mature novels Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.

Read unabridged by the incomparable Joyce expert, Jim Norton.

  • AudioFile Magazine This masterpiece presents a provocative challenge to the audiobook producer and narrator. As the title suggests, it portrays an Irish poet, Stephen Dedalus, as a youth at the turn of the last century. It progresses from his earliest memories to the present. Its narrative matures as the character, the author in disguise, matures. Just how does one present that orally? Multiple narrators of various ages? One narrator altering his voice as the subject grows up? Naxos has cast a single voice, Jim Norton, who delivers the entire narrative in a single tone of gentle, god-like detachment. In dialogue passages, the characters roar to life in all their stormy Celtic vigor. Thus, Norton takes us inside the soul of the sensitive protagonist while amplifying the color and beauty of Joyce's writing. Y.R.
