Book Description:

In the first book-length study of the comedic in Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Roy Gottfried argues that, far from being a solemn work, Joyce's early masterpiece is covertly but determinedly comic. Specifically, he looks at the Portrait's narrative structure, the protagonist Stephen's conscious disavowal of humor, and Joyce's comic use of word-play, vulgarity, and gendered language to establish the work's doubled nature.
