Chesterton asserts that Dickens was a great man and a great writer in this fascinating literary biography. He competently defends Dickens against the charges that he exaggerated too much and examines his writing in careful relation to his life. Chesterton's insight into Dickens and his work is an excellent introduction to the writing of one of the most important literary figures of English Literature.
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.
