Ford as Edwardian author: publishers, trends, markets

Haslam, Sara (2013). Ford as Edwardian author: publishers, trends, markets. In: Colombino, Laura and Saunders, Max eds. The Edwardian Ford Madox Ford. International Ford Madox Ford Studies (12). Amsterdam/New York: Rodopi, pp. 35–48.



This chapter offers an account of Ford's difficult passage through the Edwardian period with a focus on his relationship to the market, and to publishers, in comparison to some of his peers. It asks how Ford the Edwardian author was 'built'. What were his indicators of success, and in what ways were they met, or missed, and why? Overall, it places Ford in the publishing context of 1900 to 1910, and uses some well-known contemporary industry commentators to analyse and explain his output throughout the period, as well as his professional 'standing' at the time.
