"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"--P. [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
