Ford Madox Ford and the Misfit Moderns Edwardian Fiction and the By Rob Hawkes
Ford Madox Ford is a major figure of the modernist age, yet many of his works do not fulfil the expectations associated with the category of modernism. In Ford Madox Ford and the Misfit Moderns, the author examines the ways in which Ford, alongside other ‘misfit moderns’ (Richard Aldington, Arnold Bennett, Joseph Conrad, Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, H. G. Wells, and Rebecca West), destabilises the fundamental structures and forces that shape all narratives, from the processes of characterisation and plotting to the distinction between autobiography and fiction. In so doing, Ford exhibits a form of ‘in-betweenness’ that constitutes an exemplary responsiveness to the conditions of modernity whilst challenging many of our assumptions about early twentieth-century writing. Offering original readings of Ford’s Edwardian fiction and First World War writing, this book poses wide-ranging questions about the nature of narrative and the distinction between modernism and modernity.
I loved Ford Madox Ford and the Misfit Moderns Edwardian Fiction and the. Its one of those books, I got to the last page and just wanted to start reading it again. So good!
This is the BEST BOOK I’ve read in a long time!!! I could not put it down and as a result stayed up till all hours finishing it
