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

198 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,512 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

St. Thomas Aquinas by G. K Chesterton( Book )

138 editions published between 1933 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the original 1933 edition of G. K. Chesterton's study of Saint Thomas Aquinas. Chesterton's Saint Aquinas is a man of mystery. Born into a noble family, Aquinas chose the life of a humble friar. Lumbering and shy, his classmates dubbed him "the Dumb Ox" - but he grew up to lead a revolution in Christian thought. Possessed of the rarest brilliance, he found the highest truth in the humblest object, and led a life of almost unparalleled genius
Orthodoxy by G. K Chesterton( Book )

357 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,150 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]
Heretics by G. K Chesterton( Book )

242 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,140 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. 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

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.

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--Back cover
A miscellany of men by G. K Chesterton( Book )

78 editions published between 1912 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering topics ranging from literature to philosophy, history to social criticism, this is a snapshot of thought on 20th-century Europe (and the world) by one of Europe's sharpest wits and ablest pens. With chapter titles ranging from The Miser and His Friends to The Red Reactionary, from The Separatist and Sacred Things to The New Theologian and The Romantic in the Rain, this volume includes 39 brief sketches of individuals, each one of whom illustrates an aspect of contemporary society. Social, historical, and religious thought all figure prominently in this book, making it of great use in any study of the literary, religious, and social aspects of early 20th-century England and Europe generally. It will be of interest to students and scholars of the essay in English literature. It is a fine introduction to Chesterton's social criticism, which remains unique for its willingness to criticize some of the uncomfortable truths about capitalism without straying toward an inhuman bureaucratic socialism

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
