Beginning from Jack B. Yeats in 1903, Nadel traces with almost biographical detail, James Joyce’s reading, and appreciation of paintings, theatre attendance, correspondence and consequent expressionistic writing. He thinks James Joyce is very much an expressionist in “Nighttown” and in Ulysses (143). In Joyce and Shakespeare: A Study in Ulysses, William M. Schutte sets out to study the artist figure in Ulysses drawing considerably from the Stephen of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. In one of the chapters of his book; “The Artist’s Role: The God of Creation”, he examines Joyce’s method in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and the posthumously published Stephen Hero.

There are enough playgrounds for the children in school and the prefects keep strict order in what is a religious school. But the order in school is stifling for Stephen, and sometimes the action of the authorities is hate-inspiring. Added to these, his classmates are relatively wilder and make a lot of noise during the games. This rough atmosphere puts him off, since he is of a delicate frame, and cannot stand the rough play in the field. Furthermore, his mother has instructed him not to speak with the rough boys in college and his father has told him never to peach on any fellow (Portrait 9).

After all that has been analysed above, Lawrence masterfully hints towards a shift in the society of The Rainbow when he says, “Every year throws forward the seed to begetting, and, falling back, leaves the youngborn on the earth” (Rainbow 8). The throwing of this seed is to give birth to another kind of life. Lawrence further says, “There was a look in the eyes of the Brangwens as if they were expecting something unknown, about which they were eager” (Rainbow 8). They had an “air of readiness for what would come to them, a kind of surety, an expectancy, the look of an inheritor” (Rainbow 8).
