In seinem grandiosen Hauptwerk gelingt es Ford Madox Ford, große Figuren zu schaffen und an ihnen exemplarisch den Verfall einer jahrhundertealten Gesellschaft zu demonstrieren. Christopher Tietjens ist ein vermögender englischer Gentleman mit fast unmenschlicher Selbstbeherrschung – und so lässt er auch die Romanzen und Amouren seiner attraktiven Frau scheinbar ohne sichtbare Regung über sich ergehen. Doch je unnahbarer und kühler er sich gibt, desto perfider und demütigender die Versuche seiner Frau, die Maske der standesgemäßen Selbstlosigkeit zu zerbrechen ... England, unmittelbar vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs: Christopher Tietjens ist ein perfekter englischer Gentleman mit nahezu unmenschlicher Selbstbeherrschung – zum Glück, denn andernfalls wäre er vermutlich schon längst zum Mörder geworden. Seine impulsive Frau Sylvia lässt keine Gelegenheit aus, ihn lächerlich zu machen, zu demütigen und zu erniedrigen. Ihr Furor gilt seiner standesgemäßen Selbstlosigkeit, seiner perfekt abgeschotteten Gefühlswelt – kurz: jener Englishness, die seinem Leben in einer immer intriganter und korrupter werdenden Umwelt Halt und Form gibt. Je unnahbarer er sich gibt, desto wütender wird Sylvia. Tietjens flieht in den Weltkrieg. Im Bombenhagel glaubt er sich in Sicherheit – aber Sylvia verstrickt ihn in einen fürchterlichen Zweifrontenkrieg. Band 1 der Tetralogie Ende der Paraden.

A Man Could Stand Up -the third volume of Parade's End, brings Ford's characters to the 'crack across the table of History', across which lie their uncertain post-war futures. Divided into three parts, the novel is a kaleidoscopic vision of society at a climactic moment. The Armistice Day fireworks heard by Valentine Wannop in London with which the novel opens are echoed in the nightmare bombardment of the second part, as we are taken back to the war and Christopher Tietjens, staggering through the mud of No Man's Land with a wounded soldier in his arms. The final section returns to Armistice Day and joins the two characters in a frenetic dance, while Tietjens' wartime comrades smash glasses drunkenly around them. For the first time, the four novels that make up Ford Madox Ford's First World War masterpiece Parade's End are published in fully annotated editions, with authoritative corrected texts. Each novel is edited by a leading Ford expert. A Man Could Stand Up - includes -- the first reliable text, based on the hand-corrected typescript and first editions -- a major critical introduction by Sara Haslam, Senior Lecturer in Literature at the Open University and author of Fragmenting Modernism: Ford Madox Ford, the Novel and the Great War -- an account of the novel's composition and reception -- annotations explaining historical references, military terms, literary and topical allusions -- a full textual apparatus including transcriptions of significant deletions and revisions -- a bibliography of further reading.

Ehekrieg, verletzte Gefühle, Schuld und Sühne: ein fulminantes Buch, in dem ein privates und ein Weltendrama mit Donnergrollen aufeinanderstoßen. Christopher Tietjens ist ein Gentleman, wie er im Buche steht. Und deshalb hat er jahrelang die Intrigen, Eskapaden und die Untreue seiner attraktiven Gattin Sylvia so aufgenommen, wie er es auch von anderen Vertretern der höheren Gesellschaftsschichten erwarten würde: keine Szenen. Und seine eigenen Gefühle für Valentine Wannop unterdrückt, weil ein Gentleman seine Frau nicht betrügt. Und statt die Trennung öffentlich zu machen, die Tietjens nach einem hasserfüllten Streit mit seiner Frau für selbstverständlich hielt, ist er direkt in die Schützengräben Frankreichs geflohen, wo ein unbarmherziger Stellungskrieg zwischen den Alliierten und den Deutschen tobt. Doch auch hier hat Tietjens keine Ruhe: Während er inmitten einer Feuerpause versucht, sein aus vielen Nationalitäten bestehendes Ersatzbataillon für einen wichtigen Einsatz zu organisieren, erhält er die Nachricht, dass seine Frau auf dem Weg in das französische Kriegsgebiet ist. Als Sylvia in dem von verwundeten, frierenden und ausgezehrten Soldaten überfüllten Frontlager eintrifft, überzieht sie ihren Mann mit einem Sperrfeuer von Verleumdungen und Unterstellungen. Tietjens Vorgesetzter kann einen Skandal nur dadurch verhindern, dass er ihn erneut in die vordersten Einsatzlinien schickt ... Band 2 der Tetralogie Ende der Paraden.

Last Post, the fourth and final volume ofParade's End, is set on a single post-war summer's day. Valentine Wannop and Christopher Tietjens share a cottage in Sussex with Tietjens' brother and sister-in-law. Through their differing perspectives, Ford explores the tensions between his characters in a changing world, haunted by the experience of war, facing an insecure future for themselves and for England. The Tietjens' ancestral home has been let to an American, its great tree felled; those like Tietjens who have served in the war find there is no place for them in a demoralised civilian society. The celebrations of Armistice Day have been replaced by the uncertainties of peacetime. 'How are we to live?' asks Valentine, as a death and an imminent birth bring Ford's great sequence to a close.Last Post includes:-- the first reliable text based on the hand-corrected typescript of first editions-- a major critical introduction by Paul Skinner, editor of Ford's novel No Enemy and of Ford Madox Ford: Literary Contacts (International Ford Madox Ford Studies 6)-- an account of the novel's composition and reception-- annotations explaining historical references and literary and topical allusions-- a full textual apparatus including transcriptions of significant deletions and revisions-- a bibliography of further reading

Parade's End is a tetralogy (four related novels) by Ford Madox Ford. It is set mainly in England and on the Western Front in World War I, where Ford served as an officer in the Welsh Regiment, a life vividly depicted in the novels. Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) was an English novelist, poet, critic and editor whose journals. The four novels were originally published under the titles: Some Do Not ..., No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up, and Last Post. They were combined into one volume as Parade's End, which has been ranked at number 57 on the Modern Library's 100 Best Novels list. J. Gray hailed "possibly the greatest 20th-century novel in English". Likewise, Mary Gordon labelled it as "quite simply, the best fictional treatment of war in the history of the novel". The novels chronicle the life of Christopher Tietjens, "the last Tory", a brilliant government statistician from a wealthy landowning family who is serving in the British Army during World War I. His wife Sylvia is a flippant socialite who seems intent on ruining him. Tietjens may or may not be the father of his wife's child.

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. -- Book cover.

Tietjens has a brilliant mind, and speaks it scathingly and heedlessly. Both men work in London as government statisticians; though Macmaster aspires to be a critic, and has just written a short book on Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He plans to call on a parson who knew Rossetti, and who lives near Rye. Tietjens is preoccupied with his disastrous marriage.Ford Madox Ford (17 December 1873 – 26 June 1939) was an English novelist, poet, critic and editor whose journals, The English Review and The Transatlantic Review, were instrumental in the development of early 20th-century English literature.
