Parade’s End is Ford Madox Ford’s celebrated four-novel sequence tracing the trauma of the First World War through the experiences of Christopher Tietjens. Tietjens, a brilliant civil servant from a wealthy Yorkshire land-owning background, is troubled by the reckless infidelities of his wife, Sylvia, and his own feelings for Valentine Wannop, a suffragette. No More Parades sees Tietjens back at the Western Front in northern France, under fire from the enemy and under pressure in his private life.
The 2012 BBC adaptation of Parade’s End features Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Christopher Tietjens.
The four volumes comprising Parade’s End are: (1.) Some Do Not . . .; (2.) No More Parades; (3.) A Man Could Stand Up—; (4.) The Last Post
•Parade’s End is also available from Swift Editions as a single-volume Kindle ebook comprising all four novels in the series
“An officer’s private life and his life on parade are as strategy to tactics . . . I don’t want, if I can avoid it, to go into your private affairs. It’s extremely embarrassing . . . But let me put it to you that . . . I wish to be delicate. But you are a man of the world! . . . Your wife is an extremely beautiful woman . . . There has been a scandal . . . I admit not of your making . . . But if, on the top of that, I appeared to show favouritism to you . . . It’s the men that have to be considered. They think – and they’ve every right to think it if they wish to – that a man who’s a wrong ’un over women isn’t the man they can trust their lives in the hands of . . .’ He added: ‘And they’re probably right . . .”
REVIEWS OF PARADE’S END
“There are not many English novels which deserve to be called great: Parade’s End is one of them.” – W. H. Auden
“The best novel by a British writer . . . It is also the finest novel about the First World War” – Anthony Burgess
“The finest English novel about the Great War” – Malcolm Bradbury, Guardian
“If Parade’s End is due for a revival it’s not for its large historical or philosophical truths but because it is panoramic and beautifully written. It is a condemnation of the brutal senselessness and stupid waste of war.” – Edmund White, New York Review of Books
“I'd love to find the time to reread Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End – possibly the greatest 20th-century novel in English, I've come to think.” – John Gray, New Statesman
