    Abstract

    This dissertation examines the fictional construct of Stephen Dedalus and his development through the experimental forms of modernism in James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Ulysses (1922) with a view to understand the relation between language and identity. Renowned for his revolutionary style and his experimental use of language, Joyce’s work has been subject to the scrutiny of scholars for decades, and he remains at the heart of modernist studies today. Drawing on primary and secondary sources, this dissertation will investigate elements of modernist language and structure, alongside contemporary theories, in order to follow Stephen’s progression, and his personal growth, as a character, over time.
