About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton, KC (29 May 1874 - 14 June 1936), was an English writer, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, lay theologian, biographer, and literary and art critic. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Time magazine has observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories-first carefully turning them inside out."
Chesterton is well known for his fictional priest-detective Father Brown, and for his reasoned apologetics. Even some of those who disagree with him have recognised the wide appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man.

Shaw exposed.

Yet this is exactly what Chesterton sets out to deconstruct; a version of George Bernard Shaw that exists solely in his own mind. A Shaw that only he can understand, thus only he can rationally explain and criticize.
