Stories, Essays, & Poems (1935)

ℹ️ "In this Everyman volume, one of an adventurous set of modern authors, G. K. C. (he will pardon the initials) is represented as essayist, story-teller, poet, critic, humorist—an 'omnibus' volume in short, as the saying is. But it does not reveal him in all his aspects, for he has been a dramatist, a novelist, a biographer, and a brilliant journalist, too. A personal legend has grown up about him, indeed, and if its yet unwritten record can be trusted, he was observed one day when riding in a London omnibus to rise and courteously give up his seat to three ladies who had just got into the vehicle. The incident may seem casual, but it is characteristic, even symbolic, of his courtesy to literature and its three muses. Because of that genial, eclectic spirit, he has every right to a place as a link between the old literature and the new that figure in Everyman's Library. He is modern but medieval; contemporary yet reminiscent; and as we read his prose or his poetry that follows, we recall that he has dipped deep in Chaucer as well as Browning, Dickens, and the last Victorians, while retaining his own alert and paradoxical pen. I may add that he has kindly co-operated in making this selection." (Introductory Note)

Tales of the Long Bow is in progress and almost finished.

And one or two of these are still under copyright. The last one, in particular, "Stories, Essays, and Poems," and at least some of the "Collected Poems."

There are some really nice finds here, though!

If one didn't want to take on the entire Book of Job, Chesterton's introductory essay could also stand alone as a short nonfiction selection.
