1903. A volume in the English Men of Letters series. On the subject of Browning's work innumerable things have been said and remain to be said; of his life, considered as a narrative of facts, there is little or nothing to say. It was a lucid and public and yet quiet life, which culminated in one great dramatic tests of character and then fell back against into this union of quietude and publicity. The life of Robert Browning, who combines the greatest brain with the most simple temperament known in our annals, would go on forever if we did not decide to summarize it in the very brief and simple narrative found in this volume.
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.
