    Abstract:
    My intention is to reorient Stephen Hero’s position in Joyce’s oeuvre, viewing it not simply as a precursor to A Portrait but instead as a first attempt at the kind of expansive narrative Joyce would undertake in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. What I wish to narrate is not primarily the story of Stephen Hero’s failure, but instead the story of how Joyce finally managed, with Ulysses, to create a maximalism work that is free of the earlier contradictions that would have torn the project to pieces.
