Lived 1874 - 1936

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was a prolific English writer of the early 20th century.

Chesterton’s writings consistently displayed wit and a sense of humour. He deployed paradox, while making serious comments on the world, government, politics, economics, philosophy, theology and many other topics. In this he was a follower of Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw whom he knew well; but Chesterton’s style and thinking were all his own.
