The march of literature : from Confucius' day to our own by Ford Madox Ford( Book )
25 editions published between 1938 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,061 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
The last post : a novel by Ford Madox Ford( Book )

Widely acclaimed when first published in the 1920s, Ford Madox Ford's sequence of four novels, known collectively as Parade's End, is one of the outstanding works about the Great War and British society before, during, and after that cataclysm. A major work of Modernism, it is an investigation of time, history, and sexuality. This novel, the fourth and final volume, is set on a single summer's day and follows the characters into the unsettling and often disorientating postwar world. With fluency, humor and great skill, this narrative explor

Memories and criticisms
The English novel, from the earliest days to the death of Joseph Conrad by Ford Madox Ford( Book )
52 editions published between 1929 and 1998 in English and held by 955 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 second volume of Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End series, this fully annotated edition follows Christopher Tietjens, an officer and gentlemen, from the secure, orderly world of Edwardian England into the chaotic madness of World War I. Recounting a complex sexual intrigue involving Tietjens and his faithless wife Sylvia, this account is not only a panorama of WWI, but an exploration of time, history, and sexuality. The text also provides key contexts—such as Ford's biography, the historical moment, the novel's reception at the time of its original publication, and its relation to the author's other novels—giving readers a close-up view of this major literary technician at work. Transcripts of significant deletions and revisions to the work as well as a glossary of pertinent terms are also included

From social encounters with Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse to the delights of growing vegetables, this spontaneous and entertaining book is a true love letter to the Provençal lifestyle
