Ford Madox Fordâs masterpiece, a tetralogy set in England during World War I, is widely considered one of the best novels of the twentieth century.Â
Â Â Â First published as four separate novels (Some Do Not . . ., No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Upâ, and The Last Post) between 1924 and 1928, Paradeâs End explores the world of the English ruling class as it descends into the chaos of war. Christopher Tietjens is an officer from a wealthy family who finds himself torn between his unfaithful socialite wife, Sylvia, and his suffragette mistress, Valentine. A profound portrait of one manâs internal struggles during a time of brutal world conflict, Paradeâs End bears out Graham Greeneâs prediction that âThere is no novelist of this century more likely to live than Ford Madox Ford.â
About: Presents four novels which tell the terrifying story of a good man tortured, pursued, driven into revolt, and ruined as far as the world is concerned by the clever devices of a jealous and lying wife.
