This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics:" those who pride themselves on their superiority to conservative views. Chesterton's companion volume to Orthodoxy asseses such artists and writers as Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor.
G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific and gifted writer in virtually every area of literature. During his life he published 69 books and at least another ten have been published after his death. Many of those books are still in print. Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis.
