99 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in English and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ideas," she said. "Oh, as for ideas--" "Well?" I hazarded, "as for ideas?" We went through the old gateway and I cast a glance over my shoulder. The noon sun was shining over the masonry, over the little saints' effigies, over the little fretted canopies, the grime and the white streaks of bird-dropping. "There," I said, pointing toward it, "doesn't that suggest something to you?" She made a motion with her head-half negative, half contemptuous. "But," I stuttered, "the associations -- the ideas -- the historical ideas--" She said nothing. "You Americans," I began, but her smile stopped me. It was as if she were amused at the utterances of an old lady shocked by the habits of the daughters of the day. It was the smile of a person who is confident of superseding one fatally

The English novel, from the earliest days to the death of Joseph Conrad by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

59 editions published between 1929 and 2012 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all Ford Madox Ford's critical works, The English Novel (first published in 1930) is his most satisfying. He wrote it while travelling: memory plays a large part. Our guide - a major innovative novelist of the century - takes us on a tour of the key literary form of the age, from its birth to his own time." "Ford understands the novel, its development and potential. His radical view of nineteenth-century fiction and his advocacy of Flaubert and Conrad are persuasive. His association with Conrad makes the passages on the author of Nostromo (to which he contributed) especially compelling." "We are offered 'suggestions not dictates'. Ford espouses no orthodoxy: he urges a fresh reading of the best work in our tradition, with pointers in unexpected directions. Seventy years after it was written, The English Novel remains compulsively readable."--Jacket

The nature of a crime by Joseph Conrad( Book )

25 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel concerns itself primarily with internal issues of man, on a wide-ranging set of subjects. An overarching theme is that of death - as a man who, for almost the entirety of the novel, is doomed to die, the narrator offers several opinions on what it means to die, and why the idea of death satisfies him. He explains his reasonings on choosing death over imprisonment, calling himself aman of action? (opposed to aman of thought,? his other classification for people) - that death provides the basis for some new adventure something yet to have been experienced by man. As a man of experiences, he finds reason in excusing himself from an otherwise sinful act, being that nothing is known about truly experiencing death
Provence : from minstrels to the machine by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

34 editions published between 1935 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ford Madox Ford spent his last years in the south of France, near Toulon. In Provence (1935), written four years before his death, he explores both the place and the idea of it: 'not a country nor the home of a race, but a frame of mind'. Suffused with a northern European's love for 'the Roman province that lies beneath the sun', Provence evokes scents of rosemary and thyme in the dry air, games of boules amid shadows of ancient ruins, the food and flinty local wines. Part memoir, part travel narrative, part history of the region, Provence displays Ford's wise, beguiling curiosity. Humorous, informed digressions take in the Albigensian heresy, bull-fighting, a favourite recipe for bouillabaisse, Henry James and Ellen Terry, the Troubadours and much else. Over the gaiety looms the coming barbarism, the 'fixed bayonets, machine guns, uniforms and arresting fists', against which Ford's Provence is a fragile, precious hope for civilised values. This edition is based on the authoritative 1935 Lippincott edition and includes the original illustrations by Ford's companion, the outstanding American artist Biala

The march of literature : from Confucius' day to our own by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

11 editions published between 1938 and 1998 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 900-page survey of world literature, "From Confucius' Day to Our Own" (as the subtitle reads), was the last book written by Ford Madox Ford, one of the seminal figures of the modernist period. Written for general readers rather than scholars and first published in 1938, The March of Literature is a working novelist's view of what is valuable in literature, and why. Convinced that scholars and teachers give a false sense of literature, Ford brings alive the pleasures of reading by writing about books he is passionate about." "Beginning at the beginning - with ancient Egyptian and Chinese literature and the Bible - Ford works his way through classical literature, the writings of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, continuing up to the major writers of his own day like Ezra Pound, Henry James, and Joseph Conrad." "With his encyclopedic reading and expertise in the techniques of writing, Ford is a reliable and entertaining guide. Ford also includes a chapter on publishers and booksellers, noting the key roles they play in literature's existence." "Novelist Alexander Theroux (Darconville's Cat, An Adultery) has written an insightful introduction for this reissue, the first time this monumental book has been made available in paperback."--Jacket

Ford Madox Ford and America by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial British writer Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature. This series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies was founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in him. Each volume is based upon a particular theme or issue; and relates aspects of Ford's work, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time. Ford 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', Samuel Hynes has called 'the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman', and which has been adapted by Tom Stoppard for the BBC and HBO. Ford's America, like the other places he wrote about extensively such as England or France, is a place of the imagination as much as the real place in which he lived and travelled. This volume is the first extended treatment of Ford's lifelong contacts with American literature and culture. It combines contributions from British and American experts on Ford and Modernism. It has five closely inter-connected sections which display, between them, the range of Ford's creative relationships with American writers and American territory. The first explores the transatlantic dimension of Ford's modernism, from his involvement with Americans like James and Pound in Britain before the war, through the Paris days among the Americans in the transatlantic review circle such as Hemingway and Stein, to his time in America in the 20s and 30s, and the American care for his reputation after his death. The second section focuses on New York, and the publishing world portrayed in Ford's only novel set mainly in the US, When the Wicked Man . A third section, discussing culture, politics, and journalism in his writing of the 1930s, is followed by two examples of his commentary on contemporary American culture, both published here for the first time. The final section juxtaposes two examples of the many American writers who have paid tribute to Ford: an essay tracking Robert Lowell's regular recollections of his encounters with him; and Mary Gordon's celebration of his life with the Polish-American painter Janice Biala. The volume also contains fourteen illustrations, including artwork by Biala and photographs of Ford
It was the nightingale by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

25 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ford describes his encounters with Conrad, Hemingway, Proust, and Joyce, among other writers, with an infectious energy that animates every page of this compelling memoir. This comprehensive new edition seeks to redress the fact that his autobiographical writing remains largely unrecognized. Through this volume, his literary life is made available for the first time since 1984. Written with the generosity, punch, and flair that characterize Ford's novels, it employs a subtle and flexible rhetoric of narrative that fuses the genres of fiction and memoir. Ultimately, however, it tells a story of rebirth, in which the process of literary creation becomes an affirmation of life itself."
Return to yesterday by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

14 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Return to Yesterday, Ford Madox Ford's exhilarating memoir, covers the years from 1894 to the outbreak of World War I - his transition from privileged godson of the Pre-Raphaelites to the great Modern writer and editor he became. Here he evokes England at large, and London in particular, its literary community, the political world of anarchists, of his friend Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent."--Jacket
