The introduction describes the author's process of discovering the ultimate shape and focus of the book with its emphasis on circularity. It describes Murry's career before meeting Lawrence and Mansfield, and his first encounters with modernist art in Paris. It sets forth the theoretical issues of confessionalism, the dynamics of influence, the concept of genius, and the problem of modernist impersonality.
