"The sane man who is sane enough to see that Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare is sane enough not to worry whether he did or not," quipped G. K. Chesterton. The prolific author — whose works include journalism, poetry, plays, history, biography, apologetics, and detective fiction — took a keen interest in the English literary tradition, particularly in the plays of its greatest dramatist. This original compilation by Chesterton expert Dale Ahlquist introduces the best of the noted critic's short reviews and essays on The Bard.

The jovial journalist, philosopher, and theologian G. K. Chesterton felt that the world was almost always in permanent danger of being misjudged or even overlooked, and so the pursuit of understanding, insight, and awareness was his perpetual preoccupation. Being sensitive to the boundaries and possibilities of perception, he was always encouraging his audience to find a clear view of things. His belief was that it really is possible, albeit in a limited way, to see things as they are. This book, which marries Chesterton's unique perspective with the discipline of philosophical hermeneutics, aims to outline what Chesterton can teach us about reading, interpreting, and participating in the drama of meaning as it unfolds before us in words and in the world. Strictly speaking, of course, Chesterton is not a hermeneutic philosopher, but his vast body of work involves important hermeneutic considerations. In fact, his unique interpretive approach seems to be the subtext and implicit fascination of all Chesterton scholarship to date, and yet this book is the first to comprehensively focus on the issue. By taking Chesterton back to his philosophical roots--via his marginalia, his approach to literary criticism, his Platonist-Thomist metaphysics, and his Catholic theology--this book explicitly and compellingly tackles the philosophical assumptions and goals that underpin his unique posture towards reality.

Cape und zerdrückter Hut, Stockdegen und Zigarre.*Er war ein Mann mit Stil.*Und natürlich exzentrisch.*In den letzten Monaten seines Lebens veröffentlichte Gilbert Keith Chesterton monatlich eine Kriminalnovelle im »Storyteller« – ihr Held ist ein seltsamer Regierungsbeamter namens Mr. Pond.*Die Sammlung dieser acht scharfsinnigen Geschichten »Die Paradoxe des Mr. Pond« erschien erst ein Jahr nach Chestertons Tod. Es ist sein letzter literarischer Coup und wir wissen: nur in schlechten Detektivgeschichten ist die Lösung materieller Natur.*Ein Jahrzehnt zuvor erschienen die »Geschichten vom überspannten Bogen« mit Helden, die in bizarre Abenteuer geraten; geschrieben mit diebischer Freude am Paradoxen, Märchenhaften und Surrealen, handelt doch jede Geschichte vom Umsetzen eines englischen Sprichworts in die Wirklichkeit – und Unmögliches wird möglich.*Nun sind diese unmöglichen Geschichten nach bald neunzig Jahren endlich ins Deutsche übertragen worden.
