Finding More GKC

After you've read all the books, the novels, the plays, the poetry, the Illustrated London News and the autobiography, what's left of GKC's to read? Plenty.

You've still to read the Daily News, which are yet to be published as a collection, the New Witness and GKC's Weeklys that have yet to be collected. Some of these can be found in various on line sources, but no collection of any order has been made. Yet.

There is a way, though, to read some more Chesterton on line, if you know how. And I'm going to tell you the secret.

You go to the New York Times. You sign up for a free account. And you start searching under Chesterton, and put in a year, say, 1912. You will find a motherlode of more Chesterton available on line!

Happy Reading!

  1. Wow, I didn't realize. That's pretty cool.

    I also checked "The Times" in London and they have a similar service. I've already seen reviews of some of Gilbert's books, and comments he's made at certain events.

    I read a review of "Magic" which while erudite could not grasp the point of the play (lol).

    There were also notices of the deaths of his mother and of his father.
