Review: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man: Text, Criticism & Notes (Viking Critical Library)

User Review  - Heath - Goodreads

Another book I haven't read cover-to-cover since high school. Happily straightforward compared to Ulysses, but with enough early SOC to make it enjoyable. The sections on SD's decline into sin and repentance seemed much more important this time, and his subtle sneers clearer. Read full review

I struggle between 3 and 4 stars for this one. I had to work hard at this but it will stick with me for a while. Chapters 3-4 alone are worth the read. Read full review

User Review  - Martin - Goodreads

I mean...obviously brilliant...and much of it was surprisingly, absolutely wonderful to read -- insightful, astute, beautiful. Another healthy part (basically all the Irish politics) flew over my head faster than a jet. And the rest was a slog. Glad I made myself read it; moving on. Read full review

Review: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

User Review  - Isabella Rodriguez - Goodreads

Finally. Not my favorite narrative, but very insightful of the modern era in literature. Some passages are just divine and the perspective of the young artist wanting to break free from the convention of family and religion. Read full review
