Chesterton portrays Father Brown as a short stumpy Roman Catholic priest with shapeless clothes and a large umbrella and an uncanny insight into human evil How in Tartarus cried Flambeau did you ever hear of the spiked bracelet Oh one s little flock you know said Father Brown arching his eyebrows rather blankly When I was a curate in Hartlepool there were three of them with spiked bracelets Not long after he published Orthodoxy G K Chesterton moved from London to Beaconsfield and met Father O Connor O Connor had a shrewd insight to the darker side of man s nature and a mild appearance to go with it and together those came together to become Chesterton s unassuming Father Brown Chesterton loved the character and the magazines he wrote for loved the stories The Innocence of Father Brown was the first collection of them and it s a great lot of fun, A prolific and popular writer G K Chesterton is best known as the creator of detective priest Father Brown even though Chesterton s mystery stories constitute only a small fraction of his writings The eight adventures in this classic British mystery trace the activities of Horne Fisher the man who knew too much and his trusted friend Harold March Although Horne s keen mind and powerful deductive gifts make him a natural sleuth his inquiries have a way of developing moral complications Notable for their wit and sense of wonder these tales offer an evocative portrait of upper crust society in pre World War I England, Perhaps the most light hearted of all Chesterton s serious works i Manalive i pits a group of disillusioned young people against Mr Innocent Smith a bubbly high spirited gentleman who literally falls into their midst Later accused of murder and denounced for philandering everywhere he goes Smith prompts his newfound acquaintances to recognize an important idea in most unexpected ways, G K Chesterton the Prince of Paradox is at his witty best in this collection of twenty essays and articles from the turn of the twentieth century Focusing on heretics those who pride themselves on their superiority to Christian views Chesterton appraises prominent figures who fall into that category from the literary and art worlds Luminaries such as Rudyard Kipling George Bernard Shaw H G Wells and James McNeill Whistler come under the author s scrutiny where they meet with equal measures of his characteristic wisdom and good humor br In addition to incisive assessments of well known individuals Mr Rudyard Kipling and Making the World Small and Mr H G Wells and the Giants these essays contain observations on the wider world On Sandals and Simplicity Science and the Savages On Certain Modern Writers and the Institution of the Family On Smart Novelists and the Smart Set and Slum Novelists and the Slums reflect the main themes of Chesterton s life s work i Heretics i roused the ire of some critics for censuring contemporary philosophies without providing alternatives the author responded a few years later with a companion volume i Orthodoxy i Sardonic jolly and generous both books are vintage Chesterton br br He is criticizing those who hold incomplete and inadequate views about life the universe and everything He is in short criticizing all that host of non Christian views of reality as he demonstrated in his follow up book Orthodoxy The book is both an easy read and a difficult read But he manages to demonstrate among other things that our new st century heresies are really not new because he himself deals with most of them
