The Collected Letters will be a major contribution to the study of the various milieux in which Ford was so influential: the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the Fin de Siècle; the group of writers based on the Kent/Sussex coast at the turn of the century (James, Conrad, Stephen Crane, H. G. Wells); early modernism in Edwardian London; expatriate circles in 1920s Paris; the Riviera in the 20s and 30s; and New York in the same period. The edition will therefore make visible Ford’s massive contribution to the literature of the period, not only through his writing and editing, but also his reading and advising of aspiring writers.
Do please get in touch if you are aware of any Ford letters in private collections, or ask the owners to contact us.
We look forward to updating you as work progresses!
