Welcome to the Ford Madox Ford Society.
This international society was founded in 1997 to promote knowledge of and interest in the life and works of Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939).
The author of over eighty books and the founding editor of two groundbreaking periodicals, the English Review (1908-10) and the transatlantic review (1924), Ford is best known as the writer of The Good Soldier (1915), and Parade’s End (1924-8). He was also a well-regarded poet, memoirist and cultural impressionist, including among his works a ‘personal remembrance’ of Joseph Conrad and a number of books about his ‘Pre-Raphaelite childhood’.
This site has been designed to provide information about the Society’s activities, about Ford’s life and work, and about the published work and scholarship available on Ford. If there is something you want to know about Ford and you cannot find it here, please contact us, and we will do our very
best to help.
As of 2014 there is a North American chapter of the Society, formed to advance interest in Ford in the US.
On this site you can:
If you are an admirer, an enthusiast, a reader, a scholar, or a student of anything Fordian, then this society would like to hear from you, and welcomes your participation in its activities. Details of how to join, and of how to contact the Executive Committee or the website editor, can all be found here.
