War and the mind: Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End, modernism, and psychology
Authors:
Chantler, Ashley ( 0000-0002-3671-5847 ) ; Hawkes, Rob
Abstract:
Features new critical essays illuminate Ford Madox Ford's First World War modernist masterpiece Parade's End. This is the first full length critical study of Parade's End to focus on the psychological effects of the war. Originally published in 4 volumes between 1924 and 1928, Parade's End has been described as "the finest novel about the First World War." (Anthony Burgess). "the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman." (Samuel Hynes). "a central Modernist novel of the 1920s, in which it is exemplary." (Malcolm Bradbury). "possibly the greatest 20th century novel in English." (John N. Gray). These 10 newly commissioned essays focus on the psychological effects of the war, both upon Ford himself and upon his novel: its characters, its themes and its form. The chapters explore: Ford's pioneering analysis of war trauma, trauma theory, shell shock, memory and repression, insomnia, empathy, therapy, literary Impressionism and literary style. Writers discussed alongside Ford include Joseph Conrad, Siegfried Sassoon, May Sinclair, and Rebecca West, as well as theorists Deleuze and Guattari, Michel Foucault, Sigmund Freud, William James, and W H R Rivers. A long overdue examination of Ford's First World War modernist masterpiece Parade's End. It focuses on psychology and the effects of war on the minds of those who fought and those at home; adds to writing about First World War writers, war trauma and trauma theory as well as modernism, and literary Impressionism and contributes to the burgeoning fields of medical humanities and disability studies by reconsidering Parade's End in terms of the various mental and psychological disorders represented within its pages.
