Overview

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.

Meet the Author

The author of more than 80 books, including The Fifth Queen, The Good Soldier, It Was the Nightingale, and Provence, he not only collaborated with Joseph Conrad, but also befriended many of the best writers of his time: Henry James, H. G. Wells, Stephen Crane, and Thomas Hardy. Ford also founded the English Review—discovering D. H. Lawrence, Wyndham Lewis, and Ezra Pound—and the transatlantic review in Paris, taking on Ernest Hemingway as a copy editor and publishing the works of James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. Sara Haslam is a lecturer in English at Open University and a founding member and chair of the Ford Madox Ford Society.
