The Victorian Age in literature by G. K Chesterton( Book )

210 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The previous literary life of this country had left vigorous many old forces in the Victorian time, as in our time. Roman Britain and Medi©Œval England are still not only alive but lively; for real development is not leaving things behind, as on a road, but drawing life from them, as from a root. Even when we improve we never progress. For progress, the metaphor from the road, implies a man leaving his home behind him: but improvement means a man exalting the towers or extending the gardens of his home. The ancient English literature was like all the several literatures of Christendom, alike in its likeness, alike in its very unlikeness. Like all European cultures, it was European; like all European cultures, it was something more than European

Heretics by G. K Chesterton( Book )

256 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing more strangely indicates an enormous and silent evil of modern society than the extraordinary use which is made nowadays of the word "orthodox" In former days the heretic was proud of not being a heretic. It was the kingdoms of the world and the police and the judges who were heretics"--Page [4] of cover. This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics": those who pride themselves in their superiority to conservative views. G.K. Chesterton's companion book to Orthodoxy assesses avant-garde artists and writers (including Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler) with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor

Orthodoxy by G. K Chesterton( Book )

302 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is meant to be a companion to "Heretics," and to put the positive side in addition to the negative. Many critics complained of the book called "Heretics" because it merely criticised current philosophies without offering any alternative philosophy. This book is an attempt to answer the challenge. It is unavoidably affirmative and therefore unavoidably autobiographical. The writer has been driven back upon somewhat the same difficulty as that which beset Newman in writing his Apologia; he has been forced to be egotistical only in order to be sincere. While everything else may be different the motive in both cases is the same. It is the purpose of the writer to attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian Faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it. The book is therefore arranged upon the positive principle of a riddle and its answer. It deals first with all the writer's own solitary and sincere speculations and then with all the startling style in which they were all suddenly satisfied by the Christian Theology. The writer regards it as amounting to a convincing creed. But if it is not that it is at least a repeated and surprising coincidence. [Publit]
The Napoleon of Notting Hill by G. K Chesterton( Book )

213 editions published between 1904 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comical futurist fantasy, first published in 1904, about a tradition-loving suburban London community of the 1980s at war with its modernizing neighbors. Chesterton's splendid storytelling gifts, his love of medievalism and heroism, and his sympathies for the plight of small nations trying to remain independent are strongly in evidence. 7 illustrations by W. Graham Robertson. New Introduction by Martin Gardner

A miscellany of men by G. K Chesterton( Book )

80 editions published between 1910 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This early work by G. K. Chesterton was originally published in 1912. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He studied at the Slade School of Art, and upon graduating began to work as a freelance journalist. Over the course of his life, his literary output was incredibly diverse and highly prolific, ranging from philosophy and ontology to art criticism and detective fiction. However, he is probably best-remembered for his Christian apologetics, most notably in Orthodoxy (1908) and The Everlasting Man (1925). We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork

Manalive by G. K Chesterton( Book )

Publisher description: Perhaps the most light-hearted of all Chesterton's "serious" works, Manalive pits a group of disillusioned young people against Mr. Innocent Smith, a bubbly, high-spirited gentleman who literally falls into their midst. Accused of murder and denounced for repeatedly marrying his wife and attempting to live in various houses (all of which turn out to be his own), Smith prompts his newfound acquaintances to recognize an important idea: that life is worth living
The ballad of the White Horse by G. K Chesterton( Book )

114 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic poem gives an account of the Saxon King Alfred the Great and is considered one of the last great traditional epic poems written in the English language. The poem narrates how the ninth-century king won the Battle of Ethandun, which turned back the Danes from invading England. The poem's speaker explains how Alfred was assisted in his struggle by the power of God, working through the Virgin Mary. Chesterton uses the historical story of the Saxon king as a Catholic allegory, blending a great deal of philosophical thought into the story of the poem. The poem's 2,684 lines are divided into ballad stanzas, with free use of meter
