About the Author
Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) was born Ford Hermann Hueffer in Kent, England. He was a prolific novelist, poet, critic, and editor whose influential journals The English Review and The Transatlantic Review promoted the work of such writers as Thomas Hardy, H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Gertrude Stein, and Ernest Hemingway, and debuted works of Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, and D. H. Lawrence. The Good Soldier was published in 1915-the year Ford enlisted in the army where he served as an infantry officer during the Battle of the Somme and at the Ypres Salient. Ford is also known for Parade's End, a series of four novels about his experiences during the First World War. The Good Soldier is counted among the greatest works of literature of the twentieth century.

This collection features the work of a dozen storytellers spanning over a hundred years. Among the most acclaimed are: Washington Irving, who was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe; Alexander Dumas, one of the most universally read French authors; John Kenderick Bangs, who influenced the creation and recognition of the Bangsian fantasy genre; and Zona Gale who was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1921.
