Overview

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is one of the twentieth century’s great coming-of-age novels.
This Norton Critical Edition is based on Hans Gabler’s acclaimed text and is accompanied by his introduction and textual notes.

This one has too many strange, miscellaneious typographical characters, making it difficult to read.
