Abstract:

The first one-volume reader of the best of G.K. Chesterton's writing in the full range of genres he mastered. Chesterton was a towering literary figure of the early twentieth century, accomplished and prolific in many literary forms. A forceful proponent of Christianity and a critic of both conservatism and liberalism, he set out to describe nothing less than the spiritual journey of humanity in Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man, his most enduring books. He is famous as well for his beloved Father Brown detective stories, his satirical and comic verse, his profoundly witty paradoxes and aphorisms, and his penetrating studies of such figures as Charles Dickens, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Thomas Aquinas. The Everyman Chesterton contains samples of his poems, stories, essays, and biographies, as well as the influential works of religious, political, and social thought in which he championed the common man and for which he is most admired. Table of Contents: AUTOBIOGRAPHY Hearsay Evidence The Man with the Golden Key CHARLES DICKENS The Dickens Period The Boyhood of Dickens The Youth of Dickens The Pickwick Papers The Great Popularity Dickens and America Dickens and Christmas The Time of Transition Later Life and Works The Great Dickens Characters On the Alleged Optimism of Dickens A Note on the Future of Dickens THE VICTORIAN AGE IN LITERATURE The Victorian Compromise and Its Enemies The Great Victorian Novelists The Great Victorian Poets ORTHODOXY Introduction in Defence of Everything Else The Maniac The Suicide of Thought The Ethics of Elfland The Flag of the World The Paradoxes of Christianity The Eternal Revolution The Romance of Orthodoxy Authority and the Adventurer THE EVERLASTING MAN Introduction.
