The Good Soldier: A Tale of Passion

By Ford Madox Ford; Thomas C. Moser | Go to book overview

EXPLANATORY NOTES
At the time of The Good Soldier, Germany was a large empire extending from Russia to the western border of Alsace-Lorraine. It was composed of twenty-six states and divisions; over half its area comprised the kingdom of Prussia. At this time, India was of course part of the British Empire. The following notes reflect political divisions prior to the Great War.
1To Stella Ford: the Dedicatory Letter was written especially for the second American edition ( 1927) and included in the second English edition ( 1928). Stella Bowen ( 1893-1947), Australian-born painter, was Ford's mistress 1919-27 and mother of his third child, Julia.
2Conrad: Joseph Conrad ( 1857-1924), Polish-born English novelist; Ford's literary collaborator and intimate friend, especially from 1898 to 1909.

Cubists, Vorticists, Imagistes: practitioners of three pre-war avant-garde movements in the visual arts and/or literature. Cubism, developed by Picasso as early as 1907 and continuing into the 1920s, broke with the tradition of visual realism; it fragmented the planes and volumes of the three-dimensional object and recomposed them from several perspectives. Vorticism, led by Wyndham Lewis, flourished 1912-15; it attacked the sentimentality of Victorian art and celebrated violence, energy, and the machine in designs of geometric abstraction. Imagism, a revolt against romanticism by certain English and American poets led by Ezra Pound, flourished from about 1910 to 1917; it advocated direct presentation of the object, musical cadence rather than metrical regularity, and treatment of the image with hard, clean precision rather than symbolic intent. Ford said that, as early as the 1890s, he was following, in his own verse-writing, most of the tenets of Imagism.

tapageur: noisy, showy.

Jeunes: the Young; Ford's affectionate term for the youthful immediately pre-war generation of avant-garde writers.
