    schema:description ""The novel charts the intellectual, moral, and sexual development of Stephen Dedalus, from his childhood listening to his father's stories, through his schooldays and adolescence to the brink of adulthood and independence, and his awakening as an artist. Growing up in a Catholic family in Dublin in the final years of the nineteenth century, Stephen's consciousness is forged by Irish history and politics, by Catholicism and culture, language and art. Stephen's story mirrors that of Joyce himself, and the novel is both startlingly realistic and brilliantly crafted."--BOOK JACKET."@en ;
