This modernist bildungsroman traces the religious and intellectual evolution of Stephen Dedalus. Joyce’s debut novel uses literary techniques the author would develop further in his later works, and concerns the awakening and self-exile of Joyce’s fictional alter ego – who will appear again in Ulysses. Widely considered to be one of the best English-language novels of the 20th century, this book will be discussed over two meetings of the World Literature Book Group.
