As Rabaté suggests, Eliot’s publication of Larbaud’s piece had nearly immediate positive consequences for Joyce, since it “triggered a series of translations and articles,” helping Joyce’s reputation so greatly that “the year 1922 can be called a ‘Joyce year’ in Paris” (2004, 57).

In the final days of January and the early days of February 1922, a complex process kept the completion of the Elegies intertwined with the beginning of the Sonnets.
