A story I heard was that he was absurdly obese, fond of cooking – inventing a dish that required fifty cloves of garlic – and was irresistible to women. Perhaps he invented this story himself. One should expect little else from a man who changed his surname to make it the same as his first name. This is a well told tale with a strong atmosphere centring on two men, both foreigners, meeting in the south of France during the great depression, one buuon whom inevitably has a strange request to make of the other.

In questo romanzo l’autore porta alle estreme conseguenze le teorie sulla narrativa che aveva espresso in molti molti saggi e che aveva sperimentato nelle sue opere antecedenti su tutte The Good Soldier: Nell’ultimo capitolo di un altro romanzo del nostro, Una telefonatanel quale l’autore si rivolge direttamente al lettore per spiegare tra l’altro il suo modo di scrivere, Madox Ford ci spiega con un esempio questo suo modo di intendere il narrare, e dice: Ve la ricordate Nanette, che indossava un grembialino coi merletti tutt’intorno e buoh crestina sui solcato ricci?

Qui si vede jadox, secondo me, l’ascendenza che sulla scrittura di Madox Ford ha avuto uno dei suoi venerati maestri, quell’Henry James maestro dell’ omesso. Lo incontriamo in Provenza la mattina del 15 agosto mentre sta uscendo in barca dal porto per suicidarsi annegandosi. E’ ormai senza soldi a causa di speculazioni errate, ha fallito come scrittore e vuole farla finita. Purtroppo necessita dire che oggi chi si suicida non sono gli Hughes Mockton o gli Henry Martin, ma i tanti che subiscono le conseguenze delle loro azioni.
Feb 01, Humphrey rated it really liked it. The Rash Act is almost a great novel. In form, it is clearly a successful extension of Parade’s End. The story has interesting individuals whose lives are made realistic by interesting anecdotes and backstory as a character, Henry should be ranked among Ford’s most interesting.
The Rash Act
The work is also fascinating in that Ford employs his talents in a new age. There are all kinds of gems at Ford’s disposal here, yet the novel simply seems to be lacking a powerful point of orientation, either in plot The Rash Act is almost a great novel. There are all kinds of gems at Ford’s disposal here, yet the novel simply seems to be lacking a powerful point of orientation, either in plot or circumstance. The life-switch is interesting, yet it feels like it isn’t enough in itself.
Ultimately, it seems Ford agreed: RA is quite good, but unanchored – perhaps there is no other fkrd for such a novel to be written it certainly works with the unanchored-ness of the narrativebut it seems to restrict the novel to the interesting-yet-insufficient place-swap parable, despite the fact that so much more material is clearly there, material which by the end of the novel feels un-used.
For the love of God, read this with Henry for Hugh. My upgrade to a four-star rating reflects its position as the first novel in a two-book series. Many of my complaints here are satisfied by reading the work as a whole.
