His literary experiments in form and structure, language and content, signaled the modernist movement and continue to influence writers today. His two earliest, and perhaps most accessible, successesA Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dublinersare here brought together in one volume. Both works reflect Joyce's lifelong love-hate relationship with Dublin and the Irish culture that formed him.

In the semi-autobiographical Portrait, young Stephen Dedalus yearns to be an artist, but first must struggle against the forces of church, school, and society, which fetter his imagination and stifle his soul. The book's inventive style is apparent from its opening pages, a record of an infant's impressions of the world around himand one of the first examples of the stream of consciousness" technique.

Comprising fifteen stories, Dubliners presents a community of mesmerizing, humorous, and haunting charactersa group portrait. The interactions among them form one long meditation on the human condition, culminating with The Dead," one of Joyce's most graceful compositions centering around a character's epiphany. A carefully woven tapestry of Dublin life at the turn of the last century,Dubliners realizes Joyce's ambition to give his countrymen one good look at themselves."Kevin J. H. Dettmar is Professor of English and Cultural Studies at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He is the author or editor of a half-dozen books on James Joyce, modernist literature, and rock music. He is currently finishing a term as President of the Modernist Studies Association.


Study An Artist's Work Journal

RRP $18.65

There are notebooks lying around the studio and a file cabinet stuffed with news, research and ideas. This can be a nightmare organising all that clutter. It is difficult to find that piece you were wanting for your work. Do not loose this information by tossing in the bin to modify. Use a new organisation tool for quick reference to whatever research you have done.

Study an Artist's Work Journal is that organisational tool. In here you can gather information about a particular artist's styles and elements in one spot. There is also a page for attaching articles, sketches and photos for inspiration.

Why do we keep all this information? For several reasons:

  • Art history teaches visual literacy. This means the ability to understand the images we are given on a daily basis and what is being said through them. As artists this also gives us the ability to relay what we mean through images in our artwork. Symbolism within paintings has been used for centuries to render emotion and stories to a viewer.

  • Knowing how the masters of the art world used a space, to give the viewer the perception of space through plans, colour, cross section, etc. It gives us a better understanding of our own methodology to better understanding of our own work.

  • Inspiration! There are times I walk into a museum, see a drawing in a book, or online and my soul dances to it. When my soul dances I feel inspired and want to create pieces that will sing as well.

    There is so much that can be done when you know what the art world is about. It will help in your own work to reflect upon knowledge of masters, current artists, and what opens up your creativity.

    If you are studying more than one type of expression, get a different journal. For example: expressionism, cubism, French artists, English artists.... the possibilities are endless.
