Professor Max Saunders, a specialist in the turn of 19th/20th century modernist fiction and in particular the literary networks associated with Ford Madox Ford, will consider what is distinctive about Ford's representation of WW1 in his series of four novels which appeared between 1924 and 1928, collectively known as Parade's End. This work has increasingly become established as his best post war work and was recently adapted for television by Sir Tom Stoppard starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hill.
