By G. K. Chesterton
Gilbert Keith Chesterton needs no introduction. A master of the literary craft, he wrote over eighty books, hundreds of poems and short stories, and thousands of essays. Wanderings over the World collects three early works—The Napoleon of Notting Hill; The Man Who Was Thursday; and The Ballad of the White Horse—that capture his brilliant vision of God, man, and the cosmos, and his power to bring that vision to life with the written word.
“Laughter and love are everywhere. You have a halberd and I a sword; let us start our wanderings over the world. For we are its two essentials.”
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was an immensely prolific English writer, poet, and journalist. A convert to Roman Catholicism, he is best known for his Father Brown detective stories and his influential apologetic works Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man.
