Heretics by G. K. Chesterton
One of Chesterton’s earliest books, Heretics, is also one of his best. Overflowing with characteristic wit, incisiveness, and splendid gusto, here is Chesterton’s razor-sharp analysis of the fallacies of modern thought as exemplified in the leading writers of the time. Nietzsche, Shaw, Yeats, Kipling, Ibsen, H.G. Wells and others, are all submitted to a ruthless Chestertonian examination. However, true to his character, Chesterton gives the antagonist his due, while allowing the reader to celebrate the real value of his work.
