"When the question is raised, of writing an introduction to a book of a creative order, I always feel that the few books worth introducing are exactly those which it is an impertinence to introduce. I have already committed two such impertinences; this is the third, and if it is not the last no one will be more surprised than myself. I can justify this preface only in the following way. One is liable to expect other people to see, on their first reading of a book, all that one has come to perceive in the course of a developing intimacy with it."

– T. S. Eliot: "Introduction", Preface to Djuna Barnes: Nightwood, Harcourt, Brace & Co., New York, 1937

"As my admiration for the book has not diminished, and my only motive for revision would be to remove or conceal evidences of my own immaturity at the time of writing – a temptation which may present itself to any critic reviewing his own words at twelve year’s distance – I have thought best to leave unaltered a preface which may still, I hope, serve its original purpose of indicating an approach helpful for the new reader."

– T. S. Eliot: "Note to Second Edition", Preface to Djuna Barnes: Nightwood, Faber and Faber, London, 1949
