Description

With an Introduction and Notes by Sara Haslam, Department of English, The Open University. 'The Good Soldier' is a masterpiece of twentieth-century fiction, an inspiration for many later, distinguished writers, including Graham Greene. Set before the First World War, it tells the tale of two wealthy and sophisticated couples, one English, one American, as they travel, socialise, and take the waters in the spa towns of Europe. They are 'playing the game', in style. That game has begun to unravel, however, and with compelling attention to the comic, as well as the tragic, results the American narrator reveals his growing awareness of the sexual intrigues and emotional betrayals that lie behind its facade. AUTHOR: One of the primary reasons for the works of Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) being undervalued was his own endless self-promotion truly a legend in his own mind which tended to produce the opposite effect with his critics. In truth, 'The Good Soldier' is one of the great modern novels, ranking alongside Conrad, Joyce and James, and his fine tetralogy which makes up 'Parade's End' has been the subject of a recent TV adaptation.
