Originally published in 1939, this book was formed from the Le Bas Prize Essay for 1938. Given the relatively concise nature of the text, biographical exposition is avoided in favour of a detailed analysis of Chesterton's philosophical standpoint and literary achievements. There are seven chapters discussing the following areas: 'Background and Influences'; 'Orthodoxy and the Catholic Church'; 'Political Beliefs'; 'The Novels'; 'The Essays'; 'The Poems'; 'Style and Argument'. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the works of Chesterton, philosophy and literary criticism.
