is the 76th anniversary of the death of Gilbert Keith Chesterton.





"Knight of the Holy Ghost, he goes his way,
Wisdom his motley, Truth his loving jest;
The mills of Satan keep his lance in play,
Pity and Innocence his heart at rest."

Walter de la Mare, memorial poem.


Perhaps, some day, it will be his Feast Day.

“Imagination does not breed insanity. Exactly what does breed insanity is reason. Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom. I am not, as will be seen, in any sense attacking logic: I only say that this danger does lie in logic, not in imagination.”

― G.K. Chesterton

Greetings:

I changed a word...iambic me...

If a man proves too cleverly and convincingly to himself . . . that a tiger
is an optical illusion--well, he will find out he is wrong. The tiger will
himself intervene in the discussion, in a manner which will be in every
sense conclusive.

I wouldn't know where to begin reading any of Chesterton's works. Any suggestions?

It honestly depends on what you are looking for.

If his beliefs, start with ORTHODOXY.

I am totally a visual learner-type, but when it comes to GKC, the only way I was able to get through his non-fiction was to listen--the only writer I have run across like that. I listened to the Librivox recordings--the man who reads the books really understands how GCK should be read, and it's not the way I usually read! But I am learning :)

Different methods for different folks. I read all. But whatever works.
