Acting as “Foreign Editor” for The Little Review, an avant-garde American periodical dedicated to the publication of Modernist literature and ideas, Ezra Pound encouraged Joyce to submit Ulysses for serial publication in the summer of 1917. Spurred by the promise of regular payment and the encouragement that his work would be published and appreciated, Joyce began to complete chapter typescripts in sequence and sent them to Pound in London for his approval and onward submission to The Little Review in New York.
