The controversial British writer
Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature.
He is best-known for his fiction, especially
The Good Soldier, long considered a modernist masterpiece; and
Parade’s End, which Anthony Burgess described as ‘the finest novel about the First World War’; and Samuel Hynes has called ‘the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman’.
The book series,
International Ford Madox Ford Studies, has been founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in Ford’s life and work. Each volume will normally be based upon a particular theme or issue. Each will relate aspects of Ford’s work, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time.
