G. K. Chesterson is a man blessed with great linguistic ability. So dazzling is his terminology and turn-of-phrase, he obfuscates understanding. Aquinas is not immediately reachable. Chesterton I am afraid makes him even less so.
Chesterton was a terrible biographer. He would get bogged down in esoteric verbiage and ignore any details concerning the life of the subject. G. K. tells you as much if not more about Frederick the Great and St. Francis as he does about St. Thomas.
