Subject Highlights


This paper argues that Ford’s elaboration of temporality in The Good Soldier shares a narrative strategy with the modern mystery. Working from The Good Soldier and other works by Ford, the paper compares Ford’s elaboration of the problem of time to works by other modernist works (by Proust, for instance) but also to mystery writers like Dashiell Hammett.
