K. Chesterton (Gilbert Keith Chesterton) was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, literary, art critic, and biographer, and Christian apologist.Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics. Even those who disagreed with him recognized the wide appeal of works such as Orthodoxy. Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both Progressivism and Conservatism, saying, The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.George Bernard Shaw, Chestertons friendly enemy according to Time, said of him, He was a man of colossal genius”.Chesterton also wrote fiction. His best-known character is the priest-detective Father Brown, who appeared only in short stories, while The Man Who Was Thursday is arguably his best-known novel.This collection includes the following works by Chesterton:Books• Heretics• Orthodoxy• What’s Wrong With The World• What I Saw In America• The New Jerusalem• Irish Impressions• A Short History of England• Eugenics and Other Evils• The Superstition of Divorce• The Appetite of Tyranny• The Crimes of England• The Blatchford Controversies• The Victorian Age In Literature• A Miscellany of Men• Alarms and Discursions• All Things Considered• The Defendant• Tremendous Trifles• Varied Types• Utopia of Usurers and Other Essays• A Chesterton CalendarNovels• The Man Who Was Thursday• The Napoleon of Notting Hill• The Flying Inn• Manalive• The Ball and The CrossShort Stories• The Innocence of Father Brown (Collection)• The Wisdom of Father Brown (Collection)• The Man Who Knew Too Much (Collection)• The Club of Queer Trades (Collection)• Other Short Stories (Collection)• The Trees of Pride• The Donnington Affair
