Imagine an author who has become a legend in his own lifetime - all because of the novel he wrote in the first flush of youth. Novelist Eugene Pota is a cultural icon of the twentieth century, struggling to write what will be the last novel of his career. But what to write about when, like so many noted authors before him, all of Pota's output since that first, landmark novel has been scrutinized and dissected - and found wanting? PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST, AS AN OLD MAN follows Pota's efforts to settle on a subject for his final work. In his search, Heller - through Pota - pays homage to his favourite authors and discusses the problems that have plagued so many writers whose later works failed to live up to the successes of their first: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, Jack London, Joseph Conrad, to name but a few. It is a rare and enthralling look into the artist's search for creativity, a search that comes at a point in life when impotence - both sexual and spiritual - has become a frustrating fact. Joseph Heller must have known that this would be his final novel; it stands as a fitting testament to the life and works of a leading light in modern literature.

Der beste Einstieg in die Welt des James Joyce Mit dieser in Dublin spielenden, autobiografisch gefärbten Coming-of-Age-Geschichte schrieb sich James Joyce in die Weltliteratur ein. Thematisch steckt in diesem aufsehenerregenden Roman schon ein Großteil dessen, was den berühmten Iren ausmacht: Kunst, Sex, Religion, Rebellion und all die damit einhergehenden Verwicklungen. Ein Junge macht sich auf die Suche nach sich selbst. Anfangs noch ganz im Bannkreis von Konventionen und Autoritäten, entdeckt er nach und nach seine geistigen Fähigkeiten, seine zwiespältige Gefühlswelt und seine Sexualität. Die Hürden seiner Selbstfindung sind vielfältig, muss er sich doch als angehender Künstler von Übervätern emanzipieren. Auch mit der puritanischen Rolle der katholischen Kirche setzt er sich auseinander. Zwischen Moral und Amoral, Anpassung und Auflehnung entwickelt er schließlich den Mut, eigene Wege zu beschreiten. Joyce’ Roman ist ein Spiegelbild der politischen Situation seiner Epoche und ein grandioses Bekenntnis zum freiheitsstiftenden Potenzial der Kunst.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Künstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, and culminates with his self-exile from Ireland in Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses. The early youth of Stephen Dedalus is recounted at a vocabulary level of Stephen's own as he grows, in a voice not his own but sensitive to his feelings. The reader experiences Stephen's fears and bewilderment as he comes to terms with the world in a series of disjointed episodes. Stephen attends school at Jesuit-run Clongowes Wood College, where the apprehensive, intellectually gifted boy suffers the ridicule of his classmates while he learns the schoolboy codes of behaviour. While he cannot grasp their significance, at a Christmas dinner he is witness to the social, political, and religious tensions in Ireland involving Charles Stewart Parnell that drives bitter wedges between members of his family, leaving Stephen with doubts over which social institutions he can place his faith in.[16] Back at Clongowes, word spreads that a number of older boys have been caught "smugging"; discipline is tightened, and the Jesuits increase use of corporal punishment. Stephen is strapped when one of his instructors believes he has broken his glasses to avoid studying; prodded by his classmates, Stephen works up the courage to complain to the rector Father Conmee, who assures him there will be no such recurrence, leaving Stephen with a sense of triumph.

When a filmmaker makes a film with herself as a subject, she is already divided as both the subject matter of the film and the subject making the film. The two senses of the word are immediately in play – the matter and the maker – thus the two ways of being subjectified as both subject and object. Subjectivity finds its filmic expression, not surprisingly, in very personal ways, yet it is nonetheless shaped by and in relation to collective expressions of identity that can transform the cinema of ‘me’ into the cinema of ‘we’. Leading scholars and practitioners of first-person film are brought together in this groundbreaking collection to consider the theoretical, ideological, and aesthetic challenges wrought by this form of filmmaking in its diverse cultural, geographical, and political contexts.

There is no genuine affiliation between Joyce’s book "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” and this book with the exception of the mock title that in the current usage plays the role of a gigantesque pastiche. Joyce’s portraiture genre, superimposed over a restless American landscape, becomes blurred. In reality "A Portrait of the Artist as an Anthropomorphic Genius-Machine” is an antidote to Joyce’s story. In Joyce’s story the characters fold inside the chronicle and become "elements of style”. In "A Portrait of the Artist as an Anthropomorphic Genius-Machine” the characters appear, swell and decay as real living experiences, though mundane. As opposed to Joyce’s super-esthetic and pedantic tale where even the pain is suffered as part of some metaphor, this story tends to show that an American version of it is nothing but a byproduct of a society that is wide enough to gulp down success, happiness, failures, anxiety, malaise and death without affectation. The portrait-story is set in a small town called New Braintree and moves around three school pals - Joe, Walter and Peter - whose lives intersect for the length of the story: Joe, the main character, stands out as a nonconformist genius and a trouble-packed kid. He is living his anger filled childhood as if he was hurled into his own life by forces outside his control. Walter is a "prince” boy, and functions as a counterpoint to Joe. It is as if Walter could act only as long as he is part of this double-portrait, though in essence he’d like to be Joe. Peter is the witnessing chronicler. As opposed to Joe and Walter, he acts always like a thin and unnoticeable shadow. In this trio, Joe is the one who puts a fresh and original spin on teenage happenings and its growing pains. Thus, the story evolves most of the time around Joe’s rebellious personality and his spoiled life, seen him either as a problems ridden child - unable to put his life back in order after his mom dies - or as a teenager that falls prey to drugs and gambling, or, at the end, as a young-man-crusader for lost causes for which he dies. Joe’s case would prove not only that brightness and geniality could be weakened and eventually shattered by recklessness and excessive misbehavior, but also that fate and circumstance are playing sometimes an even more fatal role. Though, after all, there is something very wrong and frightening about a genius, who is nothing but an accident of nature, capable to create chaos and mayhem in his life and the life of the others due to a huge imbalance between a swamped brain and the limited degree of freedom he can use on a daily bases to participate in a life experience. Always struggling, either battling lonely the faceless enemy surfacing on his brain or real characters that mess up his youth years, Joe projects the strange feeling that he is living all his life inside an unresolved teenage crisis. His portrait is a suite of rebellious acts leading up to inhospitable consequences and death.

Lord Henry Wooton, dieser geistreich-zynische Dandy, ist es, der den zu Beginn der Handlung etwa zwanzigjährigen, unverdorbenen und faszinierend schönen Dorian Gray zum Hedonismus, zum rücksichtslosen Ausleben seiner Jugend verführt. Damit weckt er in ihm das Verlangen, ewig jung und schön zu bleiben, um alle Sinnenfreuden auskosten zu können. Der mit der Intensität eines Gebetes ausgesprochene Wunsch Dorian Grays, statt seiner möge das Bildnis, das Basil Hallward von ihm gemalt hat, altern - ein Wunsch, für dessen Erfüllung er seine Seele zu geben bereit ist -, wird ihm gewährt.
