In this paper I attempt to trace a brief outline of Joyce’s complex personality and commitments. The paper begins by providing a global vision of Joyce’s personality in the context of Modernism and of his genius as an independent artist, through the eyes of relevant critics. Next, young Joyce is presented exhibiting the rebellious nature he displayed during his school years. There will also be an explanation of the main features of his motto, as well as his conception of epiphany, the importance of the words and the symbolic fragmentation of the “etym” in his last work.
