A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Brasch PR6019 O9 P6
Leipzig: B. Tauchnitz
Joyce was educated by the Jesuits at Clongowes Wood College and Belvedere. Although he left the church, his imagination continued to be structured and shaped by Catholic tradition. On the pages displayed here, Joyce refers to Aquinas and Loyola, quoting Aquinas’ Summa Theologica and Loyola’s Constitution of the Society of Jesus. The Latin quotations can be translated: ‘Those things are beautiful that please the eye,’ ‘The good inheres in what is desired,’ and ‘Like an old man’s walking stick.’
