It shows Stephen stripping himself, layer by layer, of each of the confining shackles which restrict his maturing artistic soul.

It reveals Stephen's metamorphosis into an artist as he rambles from subject to subject in an attempt to resolve his conflicts, and it summarizes Stephen’s experiences thus far.
