It states that the focal point of genetic criticism is the process of writing, and that the aim of this book is to demonstrate that the composition process is an integral part of what the works of James Joyce and Samuel Beckett convey. It also looks at the differences between the works of Beckett and Joyce, and provides a brief description of the rest of the book's chapters.
