Chesterton, G.K.: The Trees of Pride. v2 27 Nov 2014

This is version 2, with thanks for feedback and help from pynch

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), 'the prince of paradox' was an English writer and polemicist whose prolific output included philosophy, ontology, poetry, drama, journalism, public lecturing and debating, biography, Christian apologetics, fantasy, and detective fiction. His writings and conversation displayed wit and humour, while including serious comments on government, politics, economics, philosophy, theology, literature, and many other topics.

The Trees of Pride is a short story set in a small fishing village in Cornwall in which 'There are powers, there is the spirit of a place, there are presences that are not to be put by... vegetable ogres... metaphors that take us at once into dreamland [and] events buried under riddles.' On one level it is a murder mystery, and on another it deals with how we know things.

The source text was Project Gutenberg 1721-h.htm checked against the version bundled with the 1922 Cassell and Company edition of The Man Who Knew Too Much. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, replaced italics, used British English, and made changes to spelling, punctuation, and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.

Thanks so much, that's most helpful. I have the pdf, and will do some proof reading and no doubt upload version 2.

Do you know whether it was ever published as a stand alone book?

Do you know of an online detailed bibliography for Chesterton? I certainly can't find one, and the Wikipedia bibliography has gaps.

I doubt that it was ever published as a stand alone book, it’s too short for that. I don’t know of any online bibliography either, but if you only need the date of first publication for this story, I could look it up in my library.

Yes, please, if it's not too much trouble.

version 2 is now up, with thanks for feedback and help from pynch. There are some changes to the frontmatter, and some words in the text have been italicised
