									James JoyceJames Joyce
You know an author is powerful when his name becomes a literary adjective; and "Joycean" is regularly applied to the countless writers James Joyce has influenced as one of the 20th century's greatest writers. His flowing, sometimes musical, often challenging prose -- most famously in the epic Ulysses -- has provoked and inspired readers.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
by James Joyce, Kevin J. H. Dettmar (Introduction)
One of Joyce's central themes found in both of these works is his lifelong love-hate relationship with Dublin and the Irish culture that formed him. The semi-autobiographical Portrait is the coming-of-age story of Stephen Dedalus, who yearns to be an artist but first must struggle against the forces of church, school, and society.
