Overview

‘No more Hope, no more Glory, no more parades for you and me any more. Nor for the country . . . Nor for the world, I dare say . . .’, says Christopher Tietjens to a war-damaged fellow officer, under fire on the Western Front. No More Parades continues Parade’s End from Tietjens’ return to the Front in 1917. Ford's searing account of the war is unforgettable: supplies are inadequate, orders confused; men die among the ‘endless muddles; endless follies’. Death replaces love; Tietjens’ betrayal by his wife Sylvia mirrors the violence and dishonour of the war.

Lawrence, Wyndham Lewis, and Ezra Pound—and the transatlantic review in Paris—taking on Ernest Hemingway as a subeditor and publishing the works of James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. Joseph Wiesenfarth is professor emeritus of English at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
