Young Stephen Dedalus comes from an Irish Catholic family; he is the oldest of ten children, and his father is financially inept. His mother is a devout Catholic. When Stephen is young, he and the other Dedalus children are tutored by the governess Dante, a fanatically Catholic woman. These papers were written primarily by students and provide critical analysis of Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

The Christmas dinner scene, with the bitter argument about Parnell between Stephen’s father and his aunt, could easily have come from many Irish tables in the 1970s and 80s as families rowed over what was happening in Northern Ireland. It seems history is to blame, as Haines the Englishman says in Ulysses.

Soon they would be going home for the holidays. After supper in the study hall he would change the number pasted up inside his desk from seventy-seven to seventy-six.

His father told him that story: his father looked at him through a glass: he had a hairy face. Soon they would be going home for the holidays. It would be better to be in the study hall than out there in the cold.

In this study of Joyce's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man", the author considers the important psychological and cultural issues arising in the novel. He argues that although "Portrait" may be a classic text of literary modernism, it is a fundamentally antimodernist work. To demonstrate this reading, Thornton first provides three contexts for reading the novel: the issue of defining modernism, especially the philosophical roots and implications of the modernist view of the self; Joyce's literary aims; and the genre of the "Bildungsroman". The novel itself is then examined in detail, with the focus on its overall structure, the verbal presentation of Stephen's milieu, and the uses of motif and allusion. Thornton's comprehensive study offers readers a cultural critique and intellectual history of "Portrait", and aims to provide a major basis for discussion of the novel.
