This is a study of Ford Maddox Ford, a hero of the modernist literary revolution. Ford is a fascinating and fundamental figure of the time; not only because as a friend and critic of Ezra Pound and Joseph Conrad, editor of The English Review, and author of The Good Soldier, he shaped the development of literary modernism. But as the grandson of Ford Maddox Brown, and a son of a German music critic, he also manifested formative links with mainland European culture and the visual arts. In Ford there is the chance to explore continuity in artistic life at the turn of the century, as well as the more commonly identified pattern of crisis in the time. The argument throughout is that modernism possesses more than one face.This is a study of Ford Maddox Ford, a hero of the modernist literary revolution.
