This was the first time I felt as involved in film as in working in theatre. My immersion in Parade’s End from the writing to the finishing touches took up the time I might have given to writing my own play but, perhaps to an unwarranted degree, I think of this Parade’s End as mine, such was the illusion of proprietorship over Ford’s characters and story. —Tom Stoppard, from the Introduction Tom Stoppard’s BBC / HBO dramatization of Ford Madox Ford’s masterwork takes a prominent place in the ranks of his oeuvre. Parade's End is the reinvention of a masterwork of modernist English literature produced by one of the most critically acclaimed and respected writers working today. Parade’s End is the story of Christopher Tietjens, the “last Tory,” his beautiful, disconcerting wife Sylvia, and the virginal young suffragette Valentine Wannop: an upper class love triangle before and during the Great War. Parade's End is a three-part drama, directed by the BAFTA-winning Susanna White, and featuring internationally renowned actors including Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, and Adelaide Clemens. This edition includes bonus scenes which were not broadcast, an introductory essay by Stoppard, and a selection of stills from the production as well as photographs taken on location.

A Man Could Stand Up -the third volume of Parade's End, brings Ford's characters to the 'crack across the table of History', across which lie their uncertain post-war futures. Divided into three parts, the novel is a kaleidoscopic vision of society at a climactic moment. The Armistice Day fireworks heard by Valentine Wannop in London with which the novel opens are echoed in the nightmare bombardment of the second part, as we are taken back to the war and Christopher Tietjens, staggering through the mud of No Man's Land with a wounded soldier in his arms. The final section returns to Armistice Day and joins the two characters in a frenetic dance, while Tietjens' wartime comrades smash glasses drunkenly around them. For the first time, the four novels that make up Ford Madox Ford's First World War masterpiece Parade's End are published in fully annotated editions, with authoritative corrected texts. Each novel is edited by a leading Ford expert. A Man Could Stand Up - includes -- the first reliable text, based on the hand-corrected typescript and first editions -- a major critical introduction by Sara Haslam, Senior Lecturer in Literature at the Open University and author of Fragmenting Modernism: Ford Madox Ford, the Novel and the Great War -- an account of the novel's composition and reception -- annotations explaining historical references, military terms, literary and topical allusions -- a full textual apparatus including transcriptions of significant deletions and revisions -- a bibliography of further reading.

No more Hope, no more Glory, no more parades for you and me any more. Nor for the country . . . Nor for the world, I dare say . . .', says Christopher Tietjens to a war-damaged fellow officer, under fire on the Western Front.No More Parades continuesParade's End from Tietjens' return to the Front in 1917. Ford's searing account of the war is unforgettable: supplies are inadequate, orders confused; men die among the 'endless muddles; endless follies'. Death replaces love; Tietjens' betrayal by his wife Sylvia mirrors the violence and dishonour of the war. No More Parades includes: the first reliable text, based on the hand-corrected typescript and first editions; a major critical introduction by Joseph Wiesenfarth, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of Ford Madox Ford and the Regiment of Women ; an account of the novel's composition and reception; annotations and a glossary explaining historical references, military terms, literary and topical allusions; a full textual apparatus including transcriptions of significant deletions and revisions; a bibliography of further reading.

Last Post, the fourth and final volume ofParade's End, is set on a single post-war summer's day. Valentine Wannop and Christopher Tietjens share a cottage in Sussex with Tietjens' brother and sister-in-law. Through their differing perspectives, Ford explores the tensions between his characters in a changing world, haunted by the experience of war, facing an insecure future for themselves and for England. The Tietjens' ancestral home has been let to an American, its great tree felled; those like Tietjens who have served in the war find there is no place for them in a demoralised civilian society. The celebrations of Armistice Day have been replaced by the uncertainties of peacetime. 'How are we to live?' asks Valentine, as a death and an imminent birth bring Ford's great sequence to a close.Last Post includes:-- the first reliable text based on the hand-corrected typescript of first editions-- a major critical introduction by Paul Skinner, editor of Ford's novel No Enemy and of Ford Madox Ford: Literary Contacts (International Ford Madox Ford Studies 6)-- an account of the novel's composition and reception-- annotations explaining historical references and literary and topical allusions-- a full textual apparatus including transcriptions of significant deletions and revisions-- a bibliography of further reading

Parade's End is a collection of familiar essays. The author comes from the generation in which girls read books about horses, and boys, about dogs, and his prose is old-fashioned and marvelously clear. He is a meanderer, and Parade's End celebrates the passing drift of days and the quiet miracles of living Trees bud, snow falls, and Christmas blooms green and with joy and happiness. As Time passes, acquaintances vanish. In these essays the author cruises the Adriatic and the Caribbean, he summers on a farm in Nova Scotia, receives an honorary degree in Tennessee, and roams the fields and woods of Eastern Connecticut. During his travels he meets many improbable people, most of whom exist. However, he follows the advice of Oscar Wilde and does not degrade truth into facts. Amid the bony ruins of Olympia, a man says, "All in all, I prefer the Alamo." The sweet bird of youth left the author's shoulder long ago, and the author writes about the pleasures of aging. He refuses to sink into an armchair and wait for himself or others to die. Time, of course, brings changes. Every day the author runs six miles. Recently as he was "Whizzing along,' a man standing beside the roads said, "I can't run any more either." "You will die jogging," his wife Vicki said last month, "in full stride or in the middle of one of the tip toeing steps you call running. The battery in your pace-maker will spring a leak, and you will be shortcircuited." Vicki then laughed and laughed. For a moment the author frowned, but then he laughed, for Parade's End is a remarkably bright book. At times the band saunters out of tune, but that is the way things are-some moments blare and others are melodious. No matter the air, though, this book is a rich concert of high-stepping fun and thought. Book jacket.
