Chesterton, G K: All Things Considered, v1, 8 February 2010.

G. K. Chesterton [1874–1936]
All Things Considered
First Published 1908
Ninth Edition November 1915

A collection of essays first printed as columns in the London Illustrated News.

Dale Ahlquist writes:
“Both in its title and content, it is quintessential Chesterton. Here, the master essayist considers all things from poetry to patriotism, from anonymity to impartiality, from demagogues to mystagogues, from science to religion, from phonetic spelling to running after one’s hat.
“As he does elsewhere, in his introduction Chesterton expresses astonishment that his ephemeral journalism should be reprinted in something so permanent as a book. After all, the main thrust of these writings is to take aim at modern ideas which flee as fashions flee. He cannot imagine that the book would last twenty minutes longer than the philosophies which it attacks. But the reason these essays still hold up so well, is because the bad ideas which they counter keep returning as do wide lapels and baggy pants.”
