Ford Madox Ford's importance in the evolution of the modern literary revival' was initially established by his role as founder and editor of the English Review. At this time, Ford was living at Holland Park Avenue, occupying three floors above a grocer's shop. The history of English Review under Ford's editorship is discussed at length in Ford Madox Ford, Modernist Magazines and Editing. Especially recommended are Nora Tomlinson's discussion about the economic difficulties of running such a review, Simon Grimble's essay on the perspectives that found voice in the English Review, and John Attridge's examination of the political writings that appeared in its pages. The term Impressionism had been carried into English literary discourse because it had been applied to the poems of Arthur Symons. Symons, a critic as well as poet, responsible for mediating between French movements and the London literary world, had been responsible for explaining Symbolism to British and American readers in The Symbolist Movement in Literature.
