Read full description of the books GKC Speaks: Articles From the Speaker:"It must be resolutely proclaimed that into the world of wonder there is no gate but the low gate of humility, through the arch of which the earth shines like elfland."
G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), one of the most influential and quotable authors of the twentieth century, began his career as a book reviewer. Among his earliest pieces were those which he contributed to the paper "The Speaker." Many of those pieces were later collected into his book "The Defendant" (1901), but most of the others have been out of print for over a century. This volume contains 24 of those other reviews. While ephemeral in nature in many respects, they nevertheless contain many valuable nuggets of Chesterton's wit and wisdom, and will prove of great interest to devoted Chestertonians.
Read information about the authorGilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was born in London, educated at St. Paul’s, and went to art school at University College London. In 1900, he was asked to contribute a few magazine articles on art criticism, and went on to become one of the most prolific writers of all time. He wrote a hundred books, contributions to 200 more, hundreds of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horse, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including a popular series featuring the priest-detective, Father Brown. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. He wrote over 4000 newspaper essays, including 30 years worth of weekly columns for the Illustrated London News, and 13 years of weekly columns for the Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.’s Weekly.
Chesterton was equally at ease with literary and social criticism, history, politics, economics, philosophy, and theology.
