Most widely held works by G. K Chesterton
The Victorian Age in literature by G. K Chesterton( Book )
189 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,504 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

What's wrong with the world by G. K Chesterton( Book )
161 editions published between 1902 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,462 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
