Reviews of : Robert Browning by G K Chesterton PDF Book
Inside this Book – I have no idea how accurate this biography is, but it contains some of Chesterton’s most engaging prose. As with most of his works, it is less about its putative subject and more about human experience in general. He engages in the kind of snap editorializing which would scandalize the modern scholarly biographer, but this sort of thing is the reason why we read Chesterton in the first place. Fans of Chesterton will enjoy his liberal use of witty and entertaining aphorisms to sum up the many individuals who passed through Browning’s life. The author also spends plenty of time discussing Browning’s work. Each time he discussed a poem, his enthusiasm was such that I couldn’t resist pausing to read at least a few stanzas of the original poem. If you like Chesterton, you ought to read this book.
Inside this book –Robert Browning PDF Book by G K Chesterton – Pure Chesterton — more space devoted to his own musings than to facts about Browning, but delightful in their wit, their hyperbole, their surprising twists. Chesterton cites common Browningite and anti-Browningite interpretations and then offers his personal view of why both miss some great point. He goes off on fascinating digressions about human nature, which he neatly brings back around to Browning in good time. If you like Chesterton, you can’t help but like Browning. GKC made even this hopelessly prosaic reader eager to read more of Browning’s poetry, and I just now splurged on a Complete Works e-book for 99 cents. Time will tell if I was bamboozled, but I did enjoy the shorter Browning poems that I read concurrently with this biography.
