Ford Madox Ford is a major figure of the modernist age, yet many of
his works do not fulfil the expectations associated with the
category of modernism. In Ford Madox Ford and the Misfit Moderns,
the author examines the ways in which Ford, alongside other 'misfit
moderns' (Richard Aldington, Arnold Bennett, Joseph Conrad, Robert
Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, H. G. Wells, and Rebecca West),
destabilises the fundamental structures and forces that shape all
narratives, from the processes of characterisation and plotting to
the distinction between autobiography and fiction. In so doing,
Ford exhibits a form of 'in-betweenness' that constitutes an
exemplary responsiveness to the conditions of modernity whilst
challenging many of our assumptions about early twentieth-century
writing. Offering original readings of Ford's Edwardian fiction and
First World War writing, this book poses wide-ranging questions
about the nature of narrative and the distinction between modernism
