Kommentar: “Stephen Hero is an early version of Portrait of …, probably completed about 1906. It is said that when the manuscript came back to Joyce after rejection by the twentieth publisher to whom is was submitted, he threw it into the fire, from which his wife was able to rescue only a portion of the whole work.”
