Éditeur : Brill, Netherlands

Date d'édition : 2004

Reliure : Paperback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. History and Representation in Ford Madox Ford s Writings explores the idea of history across various genres: fiction, autobiography, books about places and cultures, criticism, and poetry. I wanted the Novelist in fact to appear in his really proud position as historian of his own time , wrote Ford. The twenty leading specialists assembled for this volume consider his writing about twentieth-century events, especially the First World War; and also his representations of the past, particularly in his fine trilogy about Henry VIII and Katharine Howard, The Fifth Queen. Ford s provocative dealings with the relationship between fiction and history is shown to anticipate postmodern thinking about historiography and narrative. The collection includes essays by two acclaimed novelists, Nicholas Delbanco and Alan Judd, assessing Ford s grasp of literary history, and his place in it. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789042016132

Synopsis : History and Representation in Ford Madox Ford's Writings explores the idea of history across various genres: fiction, autobiography, books about places and cultures, criticism, and poetry. 'I wanted the Novelist in fact to appear in his really proud position as historian of his own time', wrote Ford. The twenty leading specialists assembled for this volume consider his writing about twentieth-century events, especially the First World War; and also his representations of the past, particularly in his fine trilogy about Henry VIII and Katharine Howard, The Fifth Queen. Ford's provocative dealings with the relationship between fiction and history is shown to anticipate postmodern thinking about historiography and narrative. The collection includes essays by two acclaimed novelists, Nicholas Delbanco and Alan Judd, assessing Ford's grasp of literary history, and his place in it.

Critique: "...a valuable and thought-provoking volume." in: Literature and History, Vol. 15, No. 2, 2006 "excellent scholarship but also critical experiment and essays from those beyond academe [...] Criticism now [sees Ford] as a crucial figure of European modernism or as a proto-postmodernist." - Martin Stannard, in: Studies in the Novel, 39:1 (Spring 2007), 105-13 "[Ford's] writing of history extends through fictional narrative into historical study, literary history, impressions or reminiscences of people and places, and even outright propaganda. With good reason does Saunders claim in his preface that 'the representation of history is for [Ford] also a matter of the history of representation.' ... the best essays ... demonstrate how theorization can give Ford's remarkably diverse writing renewed vigor." - Terry Caesar, in: English Literature in Transition, 49:1 (2006), 79-81 "The peculiar strength of this volume is the welcome stress it places on the trilogy about Henry VIII and Katharine Howard, The Fifth Queen, and how Ford's artistic concern with the relationship between fiction and historical romance foreshadows postmodern conceptions of historiography and narrative form." - Julian Cowley, in: Year's Work in English Studies (2006)
