G.K. Chesterton was a prolific English writer, philosopher, lay theologian, art and literary critic. He was traditional, extolling the virtues of the 'little man', and the romantic, pre-modern past. He was considered somewhat eccentric, idiosyncratic, and was fiercely opinionated. Hugely influential in his own time, he often debated with other men of letters, such as H.G. Wells, Clarence Darrow and George Bernard Shaw. Chesterton wrote around 80 books, several hundred poems, some 200 short stories, 4,000 essays (mostly newspaper columns), and several plays.
