In whichever way James Joyce’s iconic Portrait is viewed-- aesthetic experiment, modernist manifesto, compelling Bildungsroman-- its influence can still be felt today. Moreover, the parallels between Stephen Dedalus and Sweden’s own ‘Daedalus of the North’ are not lost on critics such as Gian Balsamo, and Joyce himself wrote of the lineage between Swedenborg’s doctrine of correspondences, Baudelaire’s Symbolist poetry and the Joycean epiphany.
