This is the Complete Works of Ford not just the Works of which has much fewr items. I bought the Works of Ford when it first came out and returned it when I can that the Complete Works of would be coming out soon and here it is before it stated at the time. It is part of series three. Delphi Classics has again produced a collection that is great value for money. Although it does mention in the introduction that three non fiction works were writen by Ford only the first is included. Maybe the ohers will be included in future free updates. Again it is in colour using Kindle Fire and it is full of photos and pictures. It is easy to use and well laid out. Using Kindle features it is easy to search, zoom and bookmark.

Consider that Ford Madox Ford has a vast body of work, and as wonderful as it is to have it all in one place at once, I cannot help but feel that were the content indexed it would make enjoying it a much more agreeable task. Unfortunately, one cannot simply browse for content, and if your interest lies, say, in an out of print story towards the end of the volume, the frustration of turning page after page thousands of times is somewhat laborious.

However, it delivers exactly what it intends to, and provides interesting illustrations and additional facts about the author, and for the not-so faint hearted a great companion to any Lost Generation reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parade's End, the masterpiece 22 Jan. 2013
By Alexander Tumanov - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ford Madox Ford is one the most important British writers of the first quarter of the 20th century. I bought his Complete Works after having read his masterpiece "Good Soldier" which left a big impression on me. In the Complete Works of Ford for me the most interesting work was his tetralogy (series of four novels) under the title "Parade's End" which was a huge success at that time. Recently BBC television made a TV series based on the four novels and it is being broadcast at present on BBC 2. It's a story of the generation who's life is unfolded before, during and after World War One. Although the events of the novels take place mainly in the society of upper classes we see there all strifes of life. The read is absolutely arresting and many pages would take your breath away. However, it is not always an easy reading: Ford was one of the leading figures of British modernist literary movement. But again, you will be so engrossed into events and psychological developments of the story that some stylistic difficulties would not matter. The central character of the novels, Christopher Tietjens, and his ordeals will greatly absorb you and you will love the man. I don't want to give away anything of the plot, so nothing is spoilt for your reading. And reading it is the must. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 stars A discovery long in maturing 23 Jan. 2014
By P. G. Tunnicliffe - Published on Amazon.com

I always knew that William Carlos Williams was American, and he was, and so when it came to Ford Madox Ford I assumed, wrongly , that he too was from another place, another State of being. In fact he was closer in many ways to most of us having descended from Germans. The Royal family springs to mind, but without the literary skills.
I suppose, like most of us, it was Benedict Cumberbach who warmed us to Christopher and so directed us to Ford and his other works. Parades End is not easy to read out loud to ones partner, but it was very enjoyable to watch and I am looking forward to getting into The Good Soldier, and his other works.
And another thing.
This man survived what so many other failed to do, including my literate grandfather...the First World War and was able to write about it in terms that made clear the possibilities for avoidance and the probabilities of absolute hell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite complete 30 Mar. 2013
By Peter Hulm - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Complete Works does not include his Memories and Impressions (Portraits from Life) and other non-fiction works such as his biography of Rossetti. Most students of Ford would consider these essential to any full consideration of his place in literary history. Wikipedia's entry on Ford can give you an idea of how much is missing.

Nevertheless, here are some of his post-Parade's End works such as No Enemy and The Rash Act, where Ford explored the brilliant stream of consciousness technique that made his name in Parade's End.

It also has his collected poems. Several critics consider him a poet of near genius.

So, no, it is not complete, but pretty much essential reading for any Ford aficionado.
