Chesterton’s writing in the full range of genres he mastered.Chesterton was a towering literary figure of the early twentieth century, accomplished and prolific in many literary forms.

A forceful proponent of Christianity and a critic of both conservatism and liberalism, he set out to describe nothing less than the spiritual journey of humanity in Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man, his most enduring books. He is famous as well for his beloved Father Brown detective stories, his satirical and comic verse, his profoundly witty paradoxes and aphorisms, and his penetrating studies of such figures as Charles Dickens, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Thomas Aquinas. The Everyman Chesterton contains samples of his poems, stories, essays, and biographies, as well as the influential works of religious, political, and social thought in which he championed the common man and for which he is most admired.Table of Contents:AUTOBIOGRAPHYHearsay EvidenceThe Man with the Golden KeyCHARLES DICKENSThe Dickens PeriodThe Boyhood of DickensThe Youth of DickensThe Pickwick PapersThe Great PopularityDickens and AmericaDickens and ChristmasThe Time of TransitionLater Life and WorksThe Great Dickens CharactersOn the Alleged Optimism of DickensA Note on the Future of DickensTHE VICTORIAN AGE IN LITERATUREThe Victorian Compromise and Its EnemiesThe Great Victorian NovelistsThe Great Victorian PoetsORTHODOXYIntroduction in Defence of Everything ElseThe ManiacThe Suicide of ThoughtThe Ethics of ElflandThe Flag of the WorldThe Paradoxes of ChristianityThe Eternal RevolutionThe Romance of OrthodoxyAuthority and the AdventurerTHE EVERLASTING MANIntroduction: The Plan of This BookThe Riddles of the GospelThe Strangest Story in the WorldThe Witness of the HereticsThe Escape from PaganismThe Five Deaths of the FaithConclusion: The Summary of This BookST THOMAS AQUINASOn Two FriarsThe Aristotelian RevolutionA Meditation on the ManicheesThe Approach to ThomismThe Permanent PhilosophyThe Sequel to St ThomasFATHER BROWN STORIESThe Blue CrossThe Queer FeetThe Wrong ShapeThe Resurrection of Father BrownThe Miracle of Moon CrescentThe Dagger with WingsThe Doom of the DarnawaysThe Song of the Flying FishThe Red Moon of MeruThe Chief Mourner of MarneThe Scandal of Father BrownThe Quick OneThe Blast of the BookThe Green ManThe Crime of the CommunistThe Vampire of the VillagePOEMSWine and WaterAntichrist, or the Reunion of Christendom: An OdeElegy in a Country ChurchyardLepantoThe Secret PeopleThe Rolling English RoadThe Donkey
