Summary

The first American surrealist poet, a prolific literary editor and a seminal influence on the New York School of poetry, Charles Henri Ford was a key figure in the transition from late modernist to postmodern culture in America. Charles Henri Ford: Between Modernism and Postmodernism is the first book-length scholarly study of this important literary figure. Drawing on new archival research – including explorations of Ford's correspondence with the likes of Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Djuna Barnes and many others – the book explores the full impact of Ford's contribution to 20th-century American literary culture.
