The Other in Ford's Making: Elsie, Fiction and Collaboration

Haslam, Sara (2020). The Other in Ford's Making: Elsie, Fiction and Collaboration. In: Brasme, Isabelle ed. Homo Duplex: Ford Madox Ford's Experience and Aesthetics of Alterity. Present Perfect. Montpelier, France: PULM, pp. 21–42.


This chapter offers a new reading of Ford Madox Ford's early collaboration in fiction with Elsie Martindale, whom he married in 1894. Based on original archival research, it reassesses the importance of their writing together, and the significance of her role as creative 'other' in Ford's development as an author - exceeded early in his career only by that of his grandfather, Ford Madox Brown, I argue here.
