One of the most original literary works of the 20th century, Joyce's novel follows the life of Stephen Dedalus in a story divided into 5 sections, each of which is written in a voice that reflects Stephen's age and development. The childhood memories are written in a deceptively simple, evocative, childlike style, while the final section about Stephen's maturity conveys complex themes through Latin-sprinkled, stream-of-consciousness prose. When this novel was first released in 1916, some critics were bewildered by Joyce's bold use of language to redefine the very structure of novels. Today the novel is accepted as one of the greatest English-language works in history.
