David Tennyson | 5 comments Ok so i know probably no one will respond to this due to the fact i am a few days late. Lets begin: did anyone find it strange that as the character of Stephen grew so did the authors level of writing?

Is it just me or did the young Stephen, despite a high vocabulary, his sentances were choppy and hard to follow. But as his character grew his sentances grew smoother and followed longer and stronger trains of thought.

João Victor | 1 comments It'a actually a very good comment, by now you know that this book is sort of a fictional biography for James Joyce. And Stephen is his alter ego. Most part of the things that happened in the book actually happened to him.
