A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man – James Joyce

Date Started: May 29, 2011. 11 PM. The first chapter was promising despite the shifty narrative. I even confused myself for mistaking a character named Dante for a man. Dante is a woman. Isn’t Dante too masculine a name for a woman? And after all the good impressions, everything went plummeting down on the second chapter. I no longer get it. I wonder if it could redeem itself on the third chapter. Advertisements
