James Joyce is a monolithic figure in the canon of literary modernism. He also defined Irish literature in the early 20th century. His greatest works, such as Ulysses, Dubliners, and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, are difficult but rewarding. Joyce’s contemporaries and scholars today often cite his work as some of the best fiction ever written. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man was Joyce’s first published novel, showcasing some of the literary techniques that he further explores in his later works. Its protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, also appears as a character in Joyce’s Ulysses, his magnum opus.

This Collector’s Edition is part of Easton Press’s “100 Greatest Books Ever Written” series. This volume is in fine condition. Bound in full green leather with lavish 22k gilt stamping. Raised bands. Silk orange endpapers and bookmark ribbon sewn in. All edges gilt. Brain Keogh’s illustrations are superb.

A fine collector’s copy of a Joyce classic.
