New Book: The Victorian Age in Literature by GK Chesterton

 In my quest to read the books that inspired my favorite authors, I’ve come across a ton of valuable, older non-fiction. Thus was born my Non-Fiction Collection. The Non-Fiction Collection by Sweet Sequels is a collection of notable works of non-fiction published pre-1930s. Selection ranges from philosophical and religious works, to histories, biographies, and nature guides.

The Victorian Age in Literature by GK Chesterton

The Victorian Age of Literature was published in 1913. Chesterton, a Victorian himself, presents his own views on Victorian literature in this engaging and personal collection of essays. “I was born a Victorian,” he says, “and sympathize not a little with the serious Victorian Spirit.”

 

About G.K. Chesterton:

 

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (May 29, 1874 – June 14, 1936) was a man of many faces. At face value, an author; but in the folds, a philosopher; a literary, art, and social critic; a Catholic theologian; a writer of mysteries; a historian; a debater; a poet; an apologist. He wrote around 80 books, several hundred poems, around 200 short stories, 4,000 essays, and several plays. He is often referred to as the “prince of paradox,” thanks to his propensity to take popular sayings, proverbs, and allegories and turn them on their heads. G.K. Chesterton has influenced many great men in his life, notably J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. His greatest works include his Father Brown detective stories, novel The Man Who Was Thursday, and theological works Heretics and Orthodoxy
