About G. K. Chesterton


Born in London in 1874, Chesterton was an acclaimed critic, novelist and poet. Much of his best work took the form of articles for periodicals, including his own G.K.'s Weekly. The amiable detective-priest who brought him popularity with a wider public first appeared in THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN (1911). A friend and verbal sparring partner of George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells and Henry James, Chesterton's wit and intelligence shines through his work.
