5: My favorite book, however, is The Portrait of the artist as a young man. It was actually ranked as the third most important books of the twentieth century.

7: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is often considered a portrayal of the author's early life. The novel is at once a portrayal of the maturation of the artist, a study of the vanity of rebelliousness, and an examination of the self-deception of adolescent ego. It is beautiful to see how the language evolves as the character grows older.
