The Good Soldier

Ford Madox Ford

This is the saddest story I have ever heard.

Wealthy American John Dowell describes in a disarmingly casual, compellingly intimate manner how he and his wife Florence meet an English couple in a German spa resort. They become friends over the years and gradually the history of their relationships and the passions that lie behind the orderly Edwardian façade are unveiled. Dowell is the archetypal unreliable narrator, and his casual revelations are both unexpected and explosive.

A masterpiece of early Modernism and a virtuoso performance of literary skill, Fords Tale of Passion reflects contemporary interests in psychology, sexuality, and the New Woman. Its portrayal of the destruction of a civilized elite anticipates the cataclysm of the First World War, which erupted while Ford was finishing the book. This new edition includes Fords important essay On Impressionism, which sheds valuable light on his artistic technique.

It is understood that The Good Soldier is a piece of modernism. I have no problem with that. However, this book did not touch me. It's supposed to be "the saddest story" but the characters in it were so indifferent that I could not care enough about them to find the novel to be tragic. The Good Soldier - YouTube
