Reviews - What do customers think about The Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton: The Illustrated London News, 1911-1913 (Collected Works of Gk Chesterton)?

Good, but not his best  Apr 4, 2006
Having just read GKC's essays from 1929-1931, I noticed quite a difference in these earlier works. Here, his insights are not quite as penetrating, his humor not quite as sharp. Still, Chesterton on a bad day is better than most social/political/spiritual commentators on a good day.

Recurrent themes/subjects in this volume include:
1. The anti-democratic tendencies of England which arise in part from an immoral concentration of wealth among the ruling class.
2. England's immoral and irrational laws against the poor, and England's treatment of the poor in general.
3. Feminism and the Suffrage movement.

Also of interest are a couple essays reflecting on the disaster of the Titanic.

All in all, worth reading, but I found the volumes covering the years just before and during WWI far more interesting.
