Ford Madox Ford's Modernity explores the relation between modern writing and modern experience. It examines how his prose registers the impact on society and the arts of new technologies, such as railways and telephones. It demonstrates how Ford's writing reflects, and elaborates, new conceptions of subjectivity, gender, nation and empire. And it establishes his contribution to the growing sense of crisis in the fields of history, epistemology, and representation. It includes essays by twenty leading Ford scholars on a wide range of his fiction and criticism, giving particular attention to The Good Soldier and to his responses to modern war.

"The Good Soldier and Parade's End provide the focus for many of the essays but there are ... valuable accounts of some of his less well-known works'; `a brilliantly suggestive reading of `Parade's End`; `The essays which take as their starting point Ford's engagement with the condition of modernity show the same deftness by combining their analyses of the material transformations of modernity with formal and stylistic questions." - Alistair Davies, in: English Literature in Transition, 48:4 (2005), 482-5 "Ford emerges from this fine collection of essays as a maverick yet paradoxical figure: the Tory gentleman and the radical anarchist, the custodian of the established order and the subversive analyst of class and gender, the insouciant cosmopolite and the probing eco-critic, the nostalgic celebrant of Englishness and the transnational writer who cannot help but ironize the falsehoods and fabrications by which national identity is produced." - Julian Cowley, Year's Work in English Studies (2006), 744-835
