I have been enchanted by the following scene: Right after his repentance, we see Stephen walking idly and reflecting on the myth of Daedalus that his name evokes. He thinks about his similarity to that "fabulous artificer" who constructed wings with which he flew out of imprisonment. Stephen feels that he, like Daedalus, will soon begin building a new soul that will allow him to rise above current miseries. At that moment, he sees a beautiful girl wading in the water, her skirts hiked up high. He and the girl make eye contact for a moment. Stephen perceives her as an angel of youth and beauty, and he swoons inwardly.
Beautiful, beautiful, unforgettable scene... Worth reading even for that scene only...
