This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics:" those who pride themselves on their superiority to conservative views. Chesterton's companion volume to Orthodoxy asseses such artists and writers as Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor.
G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific and gifted writer in virtually every area of literature. During his life he published 69 books and at least another ten have been published after his death. Many of those books are still in print. Chesterton was one of the spiritual influences on C. S. Lewis.

G. K. Chesterton (18741936) was one of C. S. Lewis primary mentors in apologetics, and an influence even in his conversion. Novelist, poet, essayist, and journalist, Chesterton was perhaps best known for his Father Brown detective stories. He produced more than 100 volumes in his lifetime, including biographies of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas. His Everlasting Man, which set out a Christian outline of history, was one of the factors that wore down Lewis resistance to Christianity. Chesteron was one of the first defenders of orthodoxy to use humor as a weapon. Perhaps more important was his use of reason to defend faith.
