G. K. Chesterton
He has come to the most dreadful conclusion a literary man can come to, the conclusion that the ordinary view is the right one. It is only the last and wildest kind of courage that can stand on a tower before ten thousand people and tell them that twice two is four. HERETICS Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was a British journalist, a distributivist and eventually a Catholic. Best known perhaps for his Father Brown mysteries, he also wrote novels, poetry, biography, literary criticism, social commentary and apologetics.

125. Le Jongleur De Dieu St. Francis Of Assisi By G.K. Chesterton
An excerpt from G.K. chesterton's book St. Francis of Assisi. Illustrated.
Le Jongleur de Dieu from St Francis of Assisi by G.K. Chesterton ..The conversion of St. Francis, like the conversion of St. Paul, involved his being in some sense flung suddenly from a horse; but in a sense it was an even worse fall; for it was a war-horse. Anyhow, there was not a rag of him left that was not ridiculous. Everybody knew that at the best he had made a fool of himself. It was a solid objective fact, like the stones in the road, that he had made a fool of himself. He saw himself as an object, very small and distinct like a fly walking on a clear window pane; and it was unmistakably a fool. And as he stared at the word "fool" written in luminous letters before him, the word itself began to shine and change. We used to be told in the nursery that if a man were to bore a hole through the centre of the earth and climb continually down and down, there would come a moment at the centre when he would seem to be climbing up and up. I do not know whether this is true. The reason I do not know whether it is true is that I never happened to bore a hole through the centre of the earth, still less to crawl through it. If I do not know what this reversal or inversion feels like, it is because I have never been there. And this also is an allegory. It is certain that the writer, it is even possible that the reader, is an ordinary person who has never been there. We cannot follow St. Francis to that final spiritual overturn in which complete humiliation becomes complete holiness or happiness, because we have never been there.....

What if G.K. Chesterton had a blog?
These quotes from his many works lack the pungent relevance they once had when Chesterton engaged the world he knew with great wit and wisdom; but perhaps this is the next best thing.
Well, actually, I suppose the next best thing would be to engage our own world in like manner, as well as we can, and with all the resources we can muster a task G.K. would surely have encouraged.

G.K. Chesterton The "Colossal Genius"

Wednesday, March 03, 2004
[A] few people have ventured to imitate Shakespeare's tragedy. But no audacious spirit has dreamed or dared to imitate Shakespeare's comedy. No one has made any real attempt to recover the loves and the laughter of Elizabethan England. The low dark arches, the low strong pillars upon which Shakespeare's temple rests we can all explore and handle. We can all get into his mere tragedy; we can all explore his dungeon and penetrate into his coal-cellar, but we stretch our hands and crane our necks in vain towards that height where the tall turrets of his levity are tossed towards the sky. Perhaps it is right that this should be so; properly understood, comedy is an even grander thing than tragedy. ~~ Illustrated London News, April 27, 1907

130. Freitag 49 - Ein Hoch Auf Die Extreme
Mario Scalle ¼ber die politische Essayistik des PaterBrown-Erfinders Gilbert K. chesterton.
Mario Scalla
Ein Hoch auf die Extreme

POETISCHES TRINKEN Die politische Essayistik des Pater-Brown-Erfinders Gilbert K. Chesterton
Auf der Suche nach einem konservativen Autor, der belegt, dass auch eine andere Entwicklung der politischen Rechten möglich gewesen wäre, ist der Eichborn-Verlag schon vor einiger Zeit auf Gilbert Keith Chesterton gestoßen, den Engländer, dessen literarische Produktivität der Legende nach hervorragend mit seinem Durst korrespondierte. In der Figur des Paters Brown unternahm es Chesterton ab 1911, in der Form des Detektivromans die Moderne mit der Kirche zu versöhnen, getreu seinem zuvor veröffentlichten Credo, dass, der allgemeinen Überzeugung zuwider, die orthodoxe klerikale Lehre auch im 20. Jahrhundert die richtigen Antworten zu geben weiß. 1905 erschien seine Polemik gegen die Ketzer, drei Jahre später die von Rezensenten angemahnte Schrift über die richtige Lehre.
Chesterton stand vor dem Dilemma, dass er die Welt hervorragend gelungen, die Moderne allerdings abscheulich fand. Er hasste ihren Relativismus, ihre Leere und Gefühlskälte, die kosmopolitischen Allüren und ästhetische Überspanntheit. Aber statt nun "Antichrist!" zu schreien, versuchte er sie mit ihren eigenen Waffen zu schlagen, polemisierte, witzelte und argumentierte. Seine Feinde schätzte er dabei so hoch, dass er sie zwar in dem Ketzer-Buch immanenter Inkohärenz überführte, aber in Orthodoxie auch nicht von ihnen lassen mochte. H.G. Wells, immer wieder G.B. Shaw, Nietzsche, die Sozialisten und kompromisslerische Theologen sind seine Favoriten, aber hinter ihnen lauert noch einer, der ihn so geärgert haben muss, dass er es nicht über sich brachte, ihn, wann immer er ihn meinte, auch zu erwähnen. Der Snob, also Oscar Wilde, verkörperte alles, was Chesterton bekämpfte, und doch konkurrierte er mit ihm und liebte die Pointe genauso wie der Dandy. Sein Humor allerdings ist bodenständiger und mehr auf Überzeugung als auf Bewunderung und den Gestus überlegener Brillanz gerichtet.

139. G K Chesterton, Writer
Gilbert Keith chesterton was born in London in 1874. chesterton died 14 June 1936, but is here commemorated two days earlier because the later days are taken.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London in 1874. He became a well-known writer and lecturer. He was officially received into the Roman Catholic Church in 1922, but had been writing from a Romanist point of view for a long time before that. Some of his writing is specifically Roman Catholic, and (in my judgement) he sometimes attacks Protestant positions without troubling to understand them. However, much of his writing is "generic Christian," and is read with profit and delight by many theologically well-informed Protestant readers. If you are a Protestant, you will have to read him with your mind in gear, but then you have no business to read anything whatsoever with your mind out of gear. Chesterton died 14 June 1936, but is here commemorated two days earlier because the later days are taken. One of his concerns was literary criticism. He wrote books on Robert Browning and Charles Dickens, with prefaces to the individual Dickens novels. He also wrote books and monographs on George Bernard Shaw, William Blake, William Cobbett, Robert Louis Stevenson, and The Victorian Age in Literature. He also wrote fiction, his best known work being a series of detective short stories featuring a priest, Father Brown, who (somewhat after the matter of the Tv sleuth Columbo) tends to give the appearance of being a harmless, bumbling, absent-minded fellow, but who always notices the detail that enables him to solve the case. Often, he connects the reasoning that solves the case with the sort of reasoning that is involved in Christian life. (I suspect that Harry Kemelman, author of

Chesterton Reformed: A Protestant Interpretation
James Sauer
I've got a problem with Chesterton. The problem is that I think he is a wonderful, wise, witty, and pious man; after reading his works, I never leave the page without feeling edified. Then what's the problem? Perhaps, the problem, if it is a problem, isn't in Chesterton, but in me. For I am a Protestant; but not just any Protestant. I am an American Evangelical Protestant. But there's more. I am a Conservative, Capitalistic, Bible thumping American Evangelical Protestant. And hold on to your seats folks, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse; I must confess, I am also a Calvinist. We all have our crosses to bear. Anyone who is familiar with the writings of Chesterton will see the great irony in my situation. I can only ask you not to blame me for this state of affairs, I didn't choose to be elected; it was irresistible grace. I was predestined for Presbyterianism. But since I have received this unmerited favor of God, I might as well enjoy it. I can only thank my Sovereign Maker for his predestination. Not only did he choose me to be among his chosen people, but he also destined me to be among that other elect who have had the privilege of meeting through literature the great mind and good heart of Gilbert Keith Chesterton. No doubt the ever volitional Chesterton would have pointed out that predestination had nothing to do with all this; he would have argued that I chose to pick his books up of my own free will. But I think he is wrong on this matter: I must respond that it is all of God, as all grace is.
