Chesterton, G K: Fancies Versus Fads, LIT v1, 5 September 2009.

G. K. Chesterton(1874–1936)
Fancies versus Fads (1923)

A collection of essays.
From the Introduction:
“I have strung these things together on a slight enough thread; but as the things themselves are slight, it is possible that the thread (and the metaphor) may manage to hang together. These notes range over very variegated topics and in many cases were made at very different times. They concern all sorts of things from lady barristers to cave-men, and from psycho-analysis to free verse. Yet they have this amount of unity in their wandering, that they all imply that it is only a more traditional spirit that is truly able to wander.”

Contents
