Excerpt from Term Paper:

. In the last novel [Last Post (1928)] Tietjens liberates himself from the outdated moral ideals and attempts to create a separate harmony with the world. Every part of the novel emphasizes on a single day, means that the ten years story of different behaviors is written in a manner of snap shooting. Such a style of telling a story is an open and unveiled move towards the modernist's literature. The modernism in the story, let the readers visualize the circumstances and the descriptions of physical and mental conditions of characters, the dramatization and sometimes the effort to show the reality of characters is making us believe that it's a real model of modernism. It is a valiant story provided us confidently, with no sarcasm and distrust; at the same time it strikes on us and breaks out before our eyes; and, forms a vigorous impression on our mind until the last part, all the luxuries of our lives are felt in the dramatization of the novel which is clearly a part of modernism in literature.

Tietjens is considered to be a faithful and well-known character of English literature. The reader starts caring about him; the reason being is the impressionist style that bounds us in an emotional relation with the character. The reader wants to know about the later situation faced by his favorite and most favored character. The great effort of Christopher Tietjens of a public and private survival in the book is pictured with an impressionistic technique by Ford.

The storyline is told from different points-of-views and it is frequently changing its baseline. Most of the novel tells us about Christopher trying to be a better soldier and straighten out his bizarre social life. Parade's End proposes what comes out and promoted as we are on unambiguous accounts of the dreadfulness of the trenches, a rambling projection on the First World War; it doesn't tell about killing off people, bravery and terrible effects of war but its subject is more delicate. The novel at first, on the modifications tells conflicts in British civilization. Ford took the First World War as the end of Victorian era and the beginning of modernism. The way Ford describes the war is more captivating. There is an equivalent cowardly stress on the technical and political character of war mechanism.

Conclusion:

More than 70 books were written by Ford Madox Ford, but some of those books are still read, understood and appreciated by the people having a good taste and knowledge of literature. Successors have agreed to the fact that his art of writing had masterly tricks and leaves impressions on the reader's mind. His best works include the Good Soldier, and his novels about the First World War, Parade's End. Both the novels are masterpieces and models of modernism and impressionism. These works tell the end of the Tory-Christian virtues under the violence and social hypocrisy that concluded in World War I. His preferred fictional mode of "impressionism" brings logically and successfully to an altered sort of truth. The readers who ultimately start loving Ford will be much amused and a little heartache from Fords breathtaking assertions, some true, some less than true but always worth thinking about. Ford proved himself to be an impressionist and modernist storyteller. It means that he created pictures by using such words and phrases that forced people to assume the whole scene. And the picture he used to depict about the expressions, emotions and their mental conditions leaves a vital impact on the readers, which is a quality of modern literature. Ford portrayed both modernism and impressionism beautifully in these novels.
