"Ezra Pound referred to 1922 as Year One of a new era. It was the year that began with the publication of James Joyce's Ulysses and ended with the publication of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, two works that were arguably the sun and moon of modernist literature, some would say of modernity itself. In [this book], Kevin Jackson puts the titanic achievements of Joyce and Eliot in the context of the world in which their works first appeared"--Dust jacket flap.

Bookended by the publication of James Joyce's Ulysses and T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland, the year 1922 was arguably the beginning of what we think of as the modern era. Not just in literature, though that's definitely where this book focuses. Bits of science and culture are dropped in as well. So interesting!
