Overview

Parade's End, Volume II: No More Parades by Ford Madox Ford

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.
