FORD MADOX FORD    Book Number: 84226    Product format: Paperback

Ford Madox Ford chose his name in honour of his grandfather, the pre-Raphaelite painter Ford Madox Brown and he founded two influential journals, The English Review in 1908 and The Transatlantic Review in 1924 in which he championed many leading modernist writers. He died in 1939 aged 35 in France. His masterpiece is this tetralogy, set in England during World War One, widely considered one of the best novels of the 20th century. Published as four separate novels (Some Do Not?, No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up and The Last Post) between 1924 and 1928, the novel explores the world of the English ruling class as it descends into the chaos of war. Christopher Tietjens is an officer from a wealthy family who finds himself torn between his unfaithful socialite wife Sylvia, and his suffragette mistress, Valentine. A profound portrait of one man's internal struggles during a time of brutal world conflict, the novel has been filmed many times. 2012 Vintage revised classic edition, a bumper 906pp paperback. Remainder mark.
