Book Description:

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) wrote nearly one hundred books in thirty-five years. His writing is both uncannily lucid and filled with the most provocative paradoxes. Chesterton wrote this literary biography as a defense of, homage to, and hospitable criticism of Charles Dickens. As with almost everything he wrote, CHARLES DICKENS: THE LAST OF THE GREAT MEN bursts with brilliant, tangential musings on all things.From the text:The hour of absinthe is over. We shall not be much further...

Author Biography
Chesterton, G. K. (Author)
Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He began his education at St Paul's School, and later went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London.

Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in "The Innocence of Father Brown."

Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
