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

189 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,511 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 )

215 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,113 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
Orthodoxy by G. K Chesterton( Book )

305 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,045 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]

What's wrong with the world by G. K Chesterton( Book )

152 editions published between 1902 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, G.K. Chesterton offers an analysis of social and moral issues, even more relevant today than in his own time. With a light, humorous tone but a deadly serious philosophy, he comments on errors in education, on feminism vs. true womanhood, on the importance of the child, and other issues, using incisive arguments against the trendsetters' assaults on the common man and the family. Chesterton foresaw the dangers of implementing modernist proposals. He knew that lax moral standards would lead to the dehumanization of man. In this book, he staunchly defends the family against those ideas and institutions that would subvert it and thereby deliver man into the hands of the servile state. In addressing what is wrong, he also shows clearly what is right, and how to change things in that direction
