 General Description:

The Man Who Was Thursday - A Nightmare - With Annotations By Martin Gardner
G. K. Chesterton

This edition of Chesterton's masterpiece and most famous novel, The Man Who Was Thursday, explicates and enriches the complete text with extensive footnotes, together with an introductory essay on the metaphysical meaning of Chesterton's profound allegory. Martin Gardner sees the novel's anarchists as symbols of our God-given free will, and the mysterious Sunday as representing Nature, with its strange mixture of good and evil when considered as distinct from God, as a mask hiding the transcendental face of the creator. The book also includes a bibliography listing the novel's many earlier editions and stage dramatizations, as well as numerous illustrations that further illuminate the text. Illustrated

"Gardner's annotating of Chesterton's famous novel is a delight. His notes bring Edwardian London to life, and he offers exciting new insights into the novel's meaning."
—Joseph Pearce, Author, Tolkien: Man and Myth
