T.S. Eliot was a contemporary of Joyce and his epic poem, The Waste Land, is widely considered one of the most important poems of the 20th century, and a poetic counterpart to Joyce's Ulysses which was published in the same year. In his introductory remarks to the present volume, Eliot states: "The reader of the following extracts from the prose works of James Joyce may reasonably ask on what principle the selection has been made. The editor makes no pretense of having chosen what would be called 'the best' of Joyce, and indeed maintains that no such principle could be applied... to the work of such an author... I decided that the principle of selection by which to make the reader aware of continuity of development... was to take passages in which the author was present either as child or as young man, either as observer or as protagonist."
