It is a measure of [James Joyce’s] faith in himself and sense of purpose that, during those angry, anarchic months when his “home” – rooms shared with two babies, an angry wife, and a resentful brother – was in an uproar, he recast Stephen Hero into Portrait of the Artist, conceived Ulysses and Exiles, and finished “The Dead.”
