biopic Charles Henri Ford was born in 1913 in Brookhaven, Mississippi. In 1929, he edited Blues: A Magazine of New Rhythms, a journal which featured the works of Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, H.D. and James Farrell, among others. Associated with the modern movement in Paris and New York from 1930s, Ford is co-author of The Young and Evil, a book which was originally banned in England and the United States, and of which Gertrude Stein remarked "(the novel) creates this generation as This Side of Paradise by Fitzgerald created his generation." Through the 1940s, Ford edited and published View, an arts and poetry magazine. Contributors included a number of major artists, including Duchamp, Chagall, Mondrian, Breton, Calder, Joseph Cornell, Florine Stettheimer and Georgia O'Keefe, among many others. Later work included a show of paintings in Paris and a cinematic project, Johnny Minotaur, filmed on the Island of Crete. His work in PATH was selected from Out of the Labyrinth: Selected Poems (1990). Forthcoming collections will include I Will Be What I Am (Southern Illinois University Press).
