In today’s On the Square, George Weigel discusses the greatness of Chesterton:
Fr. Ker reminds his readers just why that’s the case, which has to do with both the depth of Chesterton’s insight and the breadth of his literary accomplishment. Catholics who know GKC primarily as one of the 20th century’s most winsome and effective defenders of Christian orthodoxy will learn that Chesterton was also a distinguished literary critic: perhaps the greatest analyst of Dickens ever, and a man whose insight into literature drew the admiration of the likes of Joseph Conrad.
Read the rest here. You can find Chesterton’s works online here, and I believe all or most of them are available for free on the Kindle. Do people have any neglected favorites that they’d like to recommend in the comments?
