The innocence of Father Brown by G. K Chesterton( )

453 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 14 languages and held by 6,792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Father Brown is an eccentric priest with his own particular way of dealing with crime. His innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of deduction, he interprets each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself
The man who was Thursday : a nightmare by G. K Chesterton( )

288 editions published between 1907 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 6,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ostensibly a tale of mystery and espionage, this story about a club of anarchists in turn-of-the-century London is also--on a deeper level--a vehicle for social, religious, and philosophical commentary
Orthodoxy by G. K Chesterton( )

345 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 5,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert Keith Chesterton called himself a "pagan" at 12 and was agnostic by 16. He then developed a personal, positive philosophy that turned out to be orthodox Christianity. First published in 1908, when he was 35, this intellectual and spiritual autobiography combines simplicity with subtlety in a model apologetic for those who face the same materialism and anti-supernaturalism as the "man at war with his times". --
Heretics by G. K Chesterton( )

272 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 4,949 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"--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

208 editions published between 1910 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 4,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve short stories which include THE PARADISE OF THIEVES, where in Tuscany, a banker and his daughter seem to be in great danger as they plan to travel mountain roads where brigands are rumoured to attack. Going the same way is an armed, flamboyant poet called Muscari, and Father Brown, who is there when trouble does, indeed, occur. Then, Father Brown is involved in the theatrical world in THE MAN IN THE PASSAGE. A beautiful actress has rival admirers, but when she is stabbed to death, he solves the mystery of who murdered her and how the deed was done
A miscellany of men by G. K Chesterton( )

96 editions published between 1910 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,022 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( )

169 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 3,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 club of Queer Trades by G. K Chesterton( )

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

214 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 3,207 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
The Napoleon of Notting Hill by G. K Chesterton( )

204 editions published between 1904 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,202 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
The ballad of the White Horse by G. K Chesterton( )

132 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,180 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

These fleeting sketches are all republished by kind permission of the Editor of the Daily News, in which paper they appeared.

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

192 editions published between 1902 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chesterton gives his remarkably perceptive analysis on social and moral issues more relevant today than even in his own time. In his light and humorous style, yet deadly serious and philosophical, he comments on feminism and true womanhood, errors in education, the importance of the child and other issues, using incisive arguments against the trendsetters' assaults against the family. Chesterton possessed the genius to foresee the dangers if modernist proposals were implemented. He knew that lax moral standards would lead to the dehumanization of man, and in this book he staunchly defends the family, its constituent elements and character over 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, sane and sensible and how to change things in that direction. --
