Reviews of : Twelve Types by G K Chesterton PDF Book
Inside this Book – There’s no one I’d rather read literary criticism from than G.K. Chesterton. True, he doesn’t usually deal in hard facts or provide much in the way of evidential support for his arguments, but what he does do is give you tons of interesting ideas to mull over, and he presents them in some of the most eloquent, sophisticated prose I’ve ever seen. The title for this book is wrong. In no way could these essays be construed as “mini-biographies.” They are simply Chesterton’s thoughts on a dozen different people, most of whom were famous writers, but a couple of whom were famous for other reasons. Chesterton will make you look at each of them in a new light. His essay on Sir Walter Scott is particularly amazing, both in terms of substance and style.
Inside this book –Twelve Types PDF Book by G K Chesterton – This little volume, originally published in 1902, is a collection of short pieces Chesterton wrote originally for publication in contemporary periodicals of his day. They are a mix of historical, cultural and literary criticism in content, and left me with an urge to read more of the works of the novelists included – Charlotte Bronte, Robert Louis Stevenson, Leo Tolstoy and Sir Walter Scott. Perhaps I will, although I own a zillion books I have yet to read, so they will have competition for my attention. Chesterton throughout these essays scattered numerous allusions to various persons and events of his time and before, which the editor of this edition was kindly enough to identify in a series of footnotes. The cultural landscape of the late 19th century is seen in these essays and Chesterton, for all his originality, was a product of his time and place.
