Matt Simpon places Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in the context of the Modernist movement of the early 20th century, seeing it as a novel that takes a revolutionary view of what constitutes 'character', and exploring the many and various ways it may be constructed through a patterning of significant, formative experiences. In this study, Simpson investigates the multiple meanings of the book's central character 'Stephen Dedalus' to reveal afresh the artistic daring of Joyce's groundbreaking novel.
