A New Find: Review of Wild Knight by Brimley Johnson

When you click on the link above, you can read the whole article, but the review of Chesterton's new book, Wild Knight is on page 64, which you can click and link directly to.
The Wild Knight is frank and full-blooded, indignantly anti-decadent and genially humane. It is in tune with our noblest and most recent impulses toward high seriousness, manly enthusiam, and spiritual faith. A lyrical gift, too seldom indulged, a rare command of language, and richness of imagination are the ingredients of true poetry. In all probability, when Mr. Chesterton is better know his first volume will be more appreicated. Some of it will survive its author.
Which indeed, it has.
