Editorial Reviews

About the Author

G K Chesterton has been described as one of the most unjustly neglected writers of our time. Born in 1874, he became a journalist and later began writing books and pamphlets. His work includes novels, literary and social criticism, political papers and spiritual essays in a style characterised by enormous wit, paradox, humility and wonder.

He converted to Catholicism in 1922 and he explores the nature of spirituality in many of his books and essays, including the mighty Orthodoxy.

Chesterton is one of the few authors who are genuinely timeless and whose work has as much relevance today as when it was written.

I really loved this book. It is rather old-fashioned but in a very helpful way. Chesterton weaves the biography of Robert Browning around review and explanation of his poetry. The approach to the poetry is devoid of any modern methods of literary criticism - which I found refreshing and interesting.

This is one of GKC's most considered pieces of writing. Even though he was young it points to his future genius.
Most of his writing was done at speed to meet a close deadline, but this was for him a leisurely piece. It took six months.

Well done research. Love the poet, love Mr. Chesterton for keeping Robert Browning alive, human, and not in the least bit boring.
