G.K. Chesterton, one of the most controversial literary figures of the last hundred years, has excited an enormous range of critical comment since his death in 1936. In this generous collection of essays, D. J. Conlon presents the views of more than fifty writers on the private and public Chesterton. Writers such as George Orwell, Evelyn Waugh, Kingsley Amis, Anthony Burgess, Graham Greene, V. S. Pritchett, A. N. Wilson and many others show the range and the nature of Chesterton's impact over the last half century. G. K. Chesterton's output was prodigious, including essays, prefaces, poems, short stories and articles, as well as 115 books. Having made his name in journalism--which he called "the easiest of all professions"--he went on to write novels and to create the best-known detective-priest in English fiction, Father Brown. He wrote literary criticism, including works on Browning, Dickens and Shaw, and established himself as a Christian apologist and commentator on political and social affairs. His larger-than-life personality and appearance, his wit, and his friendship with Hilaire Belloc all made an indelible impression on contemporaries, while his writing remains subject to continual reassessment and is currently enjoying a new popularity. This collection will be of special interest to all those fascinated by the rich and eccentric era of British Edwardian literature.

Talk about G.K. Chesterton: A Half Century of Views


Der Bat
I am a student about to do a six credit independent study on GKC for next semester, my last semester of college. After buying a number of biographies on GKC and other resources to aid me in my study of the man, I stumbled upon this book, and it is unlike any other resource I have found.

So many of these essays on GKC cannot be found anywhere else, and if they can be, then they must be in exceedingly rare or out of print books that no one has heard of. No essay is longer than 5 pages, but there are so many, and they are all of such depth and insight, that one can gain a great view into how GKC's contemporaries saw him. And one can gain some useful interpretation of some of his more dense works, like The Everlasting Man.

The book has essays by C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, W.N. Wilson, and many others. It is remarkably entertaining and obviously informative. It contains a wide variety of viewpoints, some very unfavorable and some praising him.

This is highly, highly recommended for a Chesterton enthusiast. It is perhaps a bit too heavy for someone who doesn't know him or his worldview or the period of time in which he wrote - in that case a biography would be recommended, which this is not. It is just a fantastic selection of critical essays on GKC's different writings, and it is worth the 10 bucks - believe me.
