This extraordinary portrait of Joyce reveals an Irish lad reared by a loving mother and a father proud of his status and middle class proprieties. He was educated at private schools until bad times forced the family to move often, leaving a trail of unpaid rents. At this time Joyce encountered his first sexual temptations and made his choice between chastity and concupiscence. Here are the characters he wrote about: the Dubliners and those who peopled his self portrait of the artist as a young man.
