I’ve recently felt the need to reacquaint myself with the works G.K. Chesterton. I’ve read Orthodoxy, which left me both puzzled and intrigued, and I’ve started The Man Who Was Thursday several times, and though I find it very intriguing, I never stick with it. But I’ve found that even snippets of Chesterton’s writings are among the most rewarding things I’ll read all day/week/month, and so I keep reading.
So, to any Chestertonites out there, where would be a good place to start on this list? While you’re thinking that over, I’ll just revisit what is perhaps my favorite Chesterton quote:
Here dies another day
During which I have had ears, eyes, hands
And the great world around me;
And with tomorrow begins another.
Why am I allowed two?
