Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874 – 1936) was an English critic and author of verse, essays, novels, and short stories. Known as the master of paradox, Chesterton was also a literary and social critic, and – after his conversion from Anglicanism to Roman Catholicism – a subtle theologian. Among his most well-known books are Orthodoxy (1908) and The Everlasting Man (1925).
