The Fifth Queen
Ford saw the past as an integral part of the present experience and understanding, and his sharply etched vision of the court of Henry VIII--first published in 1908--echoes aspects of Edwardian England as it explores the pervading influence of power, lies, fear, and anxiety on people's lives.

Parade's End
Published in four parts between 1924 and 1928, Ford's most extraordinary novel centers on Christopher Tietjens, an officer and a gentleman -- "the last English Tory"--and follows him from the secure, orderly world of Edwardian England into the chaotic madness of the First World War. Against the backdrop of a world at war, Ford recounts the complex sexual warfare between Tietjens and his faithless wife, Sylvia.

No Enemy
In this alternatively comic and moving autobiographical novel, Ford attempted to capture his experience in the First World War, after leaving the army to settle in Sussex with the young Australian painter, Sheila Bowen. Written while the author suffered from shell-shock, No Enemy centers on a young poet named Gringoire, who has survived the war and represents aspects of the writer. With his fictional frame in place, Ford created the distance necessary to confront, as Paul Skinner writes, the pains of "having lost friends, of being terrified, afraid of going mad, afraid of dying."

England and the English
This volume includes Ford Madox Ford's nonfiction works The Soul of London, The Heart of the Country, and The Spirit of the People. Published between 1905 and 1907, this trilogy investigates the changing culture of the English with originality -- and stand as a record of English self-conception before the terrible changes wrought by the Great War.

Critical Writings of Ford Madox Ford
In addition to being an accomplished novelist, Ford was the editor of the influential journals The English Review and The Transatlantic Review, and wrote essays and letters on the subjects including the English novel, impressionism, vers libre, Joseph Conrad, H. G. Wells, Henry James, Herbert Read, and Ernest Hemingway. Some of his most important critical work is collected in this volume.

Book Cover Image: Title: Romance, Author: Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford

Buy It
Ford was not only a champion of emerging modernist voices, such as D.H. Lawrence, he also collaborated with the great novelist Joseph Conrad on two works -- Inheritance and this novel. Set in the Caribbean during the 1820s, Romance is a deliberately melodramatic tale (hence the title) that includes pirates, sea chases, and a cross-cultural love affair beset by challenges both external and internal. While its narrative pleasures caused it to be categorized with "boy's" stories, its more serious themes are the illusions and dreams of youth, as seen from the less idealistic perspective of age.
