Haslam, Sara ed.
Ford Madox Ford and the city.
International Ford Madox Ford Studies, 4.
Amsterdam, Netherlands: Rodopi.
The city is a prominent theme in contemporary literary criticism. This volume assembles 14 pioneering essays by new as well as established European and American scholars, exploring Ford's representations of real and ideal cities, across the full range of his work, from his earliest verse, to his post-war prose and poetry of the 1920s and 1930s. The volume includes an introductory essay, and three of Ford's own essays - two published here for the first time - on cities he visited on his travels through America in the 1930s: Boston, Denver and Nashville.
