About Author

Ford Madox Ford

Ford Joseph Leopold Ford Hermann Madox Hueffer, sometimes known as Madox Ford, English novelist, poet, critic, and editor (17 December 1873 – 26 June 1939), whose publications The English Review and The Transatlantic Review were crucial to the growth of early 20th-century literature in both England and America. The Good Soldier (1915), the Parade's End tetralogy (1924–1928), and The Fifth Queen trilogy are the works that Ford is most known for today (1906–1908). The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels, The Observer's "100 Greatest Novels of All Time," and The Guardian's "1000 novels everyone must read" all list The Good Soldier among the best novels of the 20th century. Ford and Elsie Martindale, his high school sweetheart, ran away in 1894. After getting hitched in Gloucester, the pair relocated to Bonington. They relocated to Winchelsea in 1901. They have two daughters: Katharine (born 1897) and Christina (born 1897). (born 1900). Joseph Conrad, Stephen Crane, W.H. Hudson, Henry James in adjacent Rye, and H.G.

He traveled to Germany to receive therapy and spend time with his family.
