“A Defense of Ugly Things;” “The Ethics of Elfland;” “On Lying in Bed;” and even “What is Right with the World” are a mere few and almost randomly selected titles that Gilbert Keith Chesterton chose for his writings. Chesterton (1864-1936), English writer, critic, playwright, and journalist, held no pretense in his writing. In his life, he published novels, plays, essays, critical reviews, and more than two hundred short stories, including the stories of Father Brown. Especially attentive to paradoxes, Chesterton wrote in many different genres. After being baptized as a Catholic in his late forties, he became an enthused writer in the name of faith and channeled his immense talent to criticize atheism.
