Gilbert K. Chesterton – The Poet and the Cheese

Reading Time: 5 minutes There is something creepy in the flat Eastern Counties; a brush of the white feather. There is a stillness, which is rather of the mind than of the bodily senses. Rapid changes and sudden revelations of scenery, even when they are soundless, have something in them analogous to a movement…

Gilbert K. Chesterton – The Suffragist

Reading Time: 6 minutes Rightly or wrongly, it is certain that a man both liberal and chivalric, can and very often does feel a dis-ease and distrust touching those political women we call Suffragettes.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The Escape

Reading Time: < 1 minute We watched you building, stone by stone, The well-washed cells and well-washed graves We shall inhabit but not own When Britons ever shall be slaves; The water’s waiting in the trough, The tame oats sown are portioned free, There is Enough, and just Enough, And all is ready now but…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The Mask of Socialism

Reading Time: 4 minutes The chief aim of all honest Socialists just now is to prevent the coming of Socialism. I do not say it as a sneer, but, on the contrary, as a compliment; a compliment to their political instinct and public spirit. I admit it may be called an exaggeration; but there…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The Evolution of the Prison

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have never understood why it is that those who talk most about evolution, and talk it in the very age of fashionable evolutionism, do not see the one way in which evolution really does apply to our modern difficulty. There is, of course, an element of evolutionism in the…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – Utopia of Usurers

Reading Time: 16 minutes I. Art and Advertisement I propose, subject to the patience of the reader, to devote two or three articles to prophecy. Like all healthy-minded prophets, sacred and profane, I can only prophesy when I am in a rage and think things look ugly for everybody. And like all healthy-minded prophets,…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The Happy Man

Reading Time: < 1 minute To teach the grey earth like a child,   To bid the heavens repent, I only ask from Fate the gift   Of one man well content. Him will I find: though when in vain   I search the feast and mart, The fading flowers of liberty,   The painted masks of art. I…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – A Chord of Colour

Reading Time: < 1 minute My Lady clad herself in grey,   That caught and clung about her throat; Then all the long grey winter day   On me a living splendour smote; And why grey palmers holy are,   And why grey minsters great in story, And grey skies ring the morning star,   And grey hairs are…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The Skeleton

Reading Time: < 1 minute Chattering finch and water-fly Are not merrier than I; Here among the flowers I lie Laughing everlastingly. No: I may not tell the best; Surely, friends, I might have guessed Death was but the good King’s jest,   It was hid so carefully.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – The World’s Lover

Reading Time: < 1 minute My eyes are full of lonely mirth:   Reeling with want and worn with scars, For pride of every stone on earth,   I shake my spear at all the stars. A live bat beats my crest above,   Lean foxes nose where I have trod, And on my naked face the love…

Gilbert Keith Chesterton – By the Babe Unborn

Reading Time: < 1 minute If trees were tall and grasses short,   As in some crazy tale, If here and there a sea were blue   Beyond the breaking pale, If a fixed fire hung in the air   To warm me one day through, If deep green hair grew on great hills,   I know what I…
