STUNTED?

"I like that very much," cried Hermine. "In your case, for example, the spiritual part is very highly developed, and so you are very backward in all the little arts of living. Harry, the thinker, is a hundred years old, but Harry, the dancer, is scarcely half a day old. It's he we want to bring on, and all his little brothers who are just as little and stupid and STUNTED as he is."
~Herman Hesse
"Steppenwolf" Bantam edition 1969 page 144.
