Parade’s End


This chapter briefly mention the genesis of Parade's End. Parade's End the tetralogy comprising Some Do Not, No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up and Last Post depicts the end of an era, the decay of a society and of its values, which the First World War both exposed and deepened. It then moves on to Ford's choice of characterisation and to the organisation of the characters along a spectrum of various ideological stances. The narrative technique developed in the tetralogy proves particularly rich and telling of the way in which Ford’s art reaches new heights in this text. Finally, the chapter examines how, through its persistent and deliberate instability, Ford's text is constantly moving towards an aesthetics whose contours are merely suggested, and which, while being undoubtedly modernist in its aim and spirit, seems to reach beyond the conventional boundaries of the modernist canon.
