The Good Soldier
Edward Ashburnham the finest soldier
A page from Forester: a romance gone wrong in an idyllic Victorian setting, though thoroughly modern in style (Ford edited and helped write Conrad's work before they had a falling out).
This is the saddest story I've ever heard.
I wanted to say, "God bless you," for I also am a sentimentalist. But I thought that perhaps that would not be quite English good form, so I trotted off with the telegram to Leonora. She was quite pleased with it.
