Essay on A portrait of the Artist as a young man by James Joyce

According to Hugh Kenner in your Joyce text, Stephen is not hateful, though he is irritating when he is being put forth by the massed proprietors of the Joyce Legend as an authentic genius. Considered as a genius, he is a tedious clich, weary, disdainful, sterile (360). Using specific references to the text, analyze whether Stephen is the hero he presents himself as, or something less. Be sure to review and cite from your Joyce texts Joyces PortraitA Reconsideration as part of your analysis of the novel. Kenner, Hugh. Joyces PortraitA Reconsideration. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Ed. John Paul Riquelme. New York: W. W. Norton, 2007. 34861.
