G. K. Chesterton, the "Prince of Paradox," is at his witty best in this
collection of 20 essays and articles from the turn of the 20th century.
Focusing on "heretics" -- those who pride themselves in their
superiority to conservative views -- Chesterton appraises prominent
figures from the literary and art worlds who fall into that category.
Luminaries such as Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler come under the
author's scrutiny, where they meet with equal measures of his
characteristic wisdom and good humor. Observations on the wider world
-- including "On Sandals and Simplicity," "Science and the Savages,"
and "Slum Novelists and the Slums" -- reflect the main themes of
Chesterton's work.
