The Little Review: A Magazine of the Arts "Making No Compromise With Public Taste," was established by Margaret Anderson in 1914, and backed financially by New York Attorney John Quinn. Author Ezra Pound, who worked as Foreign Editor, admired James Joyce's literary talent and arranged to serialize Ulysses in the magazine beginning in the March 1918 issue. John Quinn, already supporting Pound, agreed to pay James Joyce £25 for the serial rights.
When Pound read the first three installments, he wrote to editor Anderson, "I suppose we'll be damn well suppressed if we print the text as it stands. BUT it is damn wellworth [sic] it." The avant-garde magazine was met with censorship from the first episodes, eventually ensuring Joyce's place in the international spotlight.
