Seeing Things as They Are by Duncan Reyburn Book Resume:

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 believed that it really was possible, albeit in a limited way, to see things as they are. Duncan Reyburn, marrying 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. Chesterton's unique interpretive approach seems to be theimplicit 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 Roman Catholic theology - Reyburn explicitly and compellingly tackles the philosophical assumptions and goals that underpin his unique posture towards reality.

G.K. Chesterton, London and Modernity by Matthew Beaumont,Matthew Ingleby Book Resume:

G. K. Chesterton, London and Modernity is the first book to explore the persistent theme of the city in Chesterton's writing. Situating him in relation to both Victorian and Modernist literary paradigms, the book explores a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to address the way his imaginative investments and political interventions conceive urban modernity and the central figure of London. While Chesterton's work has often been valued for its wit and whimsy, this book argues that he is also a distinctive urban commentator, whose sophistication has been underappreciated in comparison to more canonical contemporaries. With chapters written by leading scholars in the field of 20th-century literature, the book also provides fresh readings and suggests new contexts for central texts such as The Man Who Was Thursday, The Napoleon of Notting Hill and the Father Brown stories. It also discusses lesser-known works, such as Manalive and The Club of Queer Trades, drawing out their significance for scholars interested in urban representation and practice in the first three decades of the 20th century.

The Philanderer by Bernard Shaw Book Resume:

The second of Shaw’s “unpleasant” plays, written in 1893, published in 1898, but not performed until 1905, The Philanderer is subtitled “A Topical Comedy.” The eclectic range of topical subjects addressed in the play includes the influence of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen on British middle-class social mores (the second act of The Philanderer is set in the fictional Ibsen Club), medical follies, the rise of the “New Woman,” and, in particular, the destructive impact of Victorian marriage and divorce laws. Just as Shaw’s other “unpleasant” plays, Widowers’ Houses and Mrs Warren’s Profession, call, respectively, for reform of laws that allow corrupt property owners to exploit the poor and for radical change to economic structures that drive women into prostitution, so The Philanderer makes the case for more liberal legislation to allow easier divorce—particularly for women—when marriages become irretrievably broken. Shaw’s attack on divorce laws becomes even clearer and stronger in the final act that he wrote for the play but discarded in favour of the version he published. The discarded version is published for the first time in this Broadview edition of the play.

The Complete Father Brown Stories by G. K. Chesterton Book Resume:

Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself. This complete edition brings together all of the Father Brown stories, including two not previously available in Penguin: 'The Donnington Affair', in which Chesterton rises to the challenge of solving a murder-mystery half written by someone else (Max Pemberton), and 'The Mask of Midas', which was found in Chesterton's papers after his death.

Can you trust yourself when you don't know who you are? In a park in London, secret policeman Gabriel Syme strikes up a conversation with an anarchist. Sworn to do his duty, Syme uses his new acquaintance to go undercover in Europe's Central Anarchist Council and infiltrate their deadly mission, even managing to have himself voted to the position of 'Thursday'. When Syme discovers another undercover policeman on the Council, however, he starts to question his role in their operations. And as a desperate chase across Europe begins, his confusion grows, as well as his confidence in his ability to outwit his enemies. But he has still to face the greatest terror that the Council has: a man named Sunday, whose true nature is worse than Syme could ever have imagined ...

The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare Book Resume:

The Comedy of Errors has been popular on the stage during the last three centuries and has proved itself admirably suited to adaptation as pure farce and musical spectacle. For this updated edition, Ros King has provided a completely new Introduction to the existing text and commentary, in which she argues that the play cannot be regarded merely as a farcical romp based on a classical model, but belongs to the critically misunderstood genre of tragi-comedy. In stressing the seriousness which underlies the story, the Introduction picks out the play's religious imagery for special attention, whilst also engaging fully with the play's deft lightness of touch and its continuing popularity in the theatre. A fresh Reading List guides the reader towards further study.

La Chose by Gilbert Keith Chesterton Book Resume:

La Chose, c’est l’Église catholique, « poursuivie, d’époque en époque, par une haine déraisonnable qui change perpé¬tuellement de raison », et à laquelle Gilbert Keith Chesterton se convertit en 1922. Dans ce livre polémique, publié en 1929 et inédit en français à ce jour, Chesterton entreprend d’expliquer les raisons de cette conversion, tout en ferraillant notamment contre les adorateurs de l’humanisme auquel l’époque commence de vouer un culte. « Il y a trois cents millions de personnes dans le monde qui acceptent les mystères que j’accepte et qui vivent confor¬mément à la foi qui est la mienne. Je veux vraiment savoir si l’on peut compter qu’il y ait un jour trois cents millions d’humanistes dans toute l’humanité. L’optimiste peut bien dire que l’humanisme sera la religion de la nouvelle génération, tout comme Auguste Comte a dit que l’Humanité serait le Dieu de la nouvelle génération ; et, en un sens, elle l’a été. Mais ce n’est plus le Dieu de la présente génération. Et la question est de savoir ce que sera la religion de la nouvelle génération après ça, ou de toutes les autres générations (comme il a été dit dans une certaine promesse d’autrefois) jusqu’à la fin du monde. »

Utopianism, Modernism, and Literature in the Twentieth Century by A. Reeve-Tucker,N. Waddell Book Resume:

Utopianism, Modernism, and Literature in the Twentieth Century considers the links between utopianism and modernism in two ways: as an under-theorized nexus of aesthetic and political interactions; and as a sphere of confluences that challenges accepted critical models of modernist and twentieth-century literary history. An international group of scholars considers works by E. M. Forster, Ford Madox Ford, Wyndham Lewis, Naomi Mitchison, Katharine Burdekin, Rex Warner, Yevgeny Zamyatin, Thomas Pynchon, Elizabeth Bowen, James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, and Ernst Bloch. In doing so, this volume's contributors prompt new reflections on key aspects of utopianism in experimental twentieth-century literature and non-fictional writing; deepen literary-historical understandings of modernism's socio-political implications; and bear out the on-going relevance of modernism's explorations of utopian thought. Utopianism, Modernism, and Literature in the Twentieth Century will appeal to anyone with an interest in how deeply and how differently modernist writers, as well as writers influenced by or resistant to modernist styles, engaged with issues of utopianism, perfectibility, and social betterment.

Vegetarianos, imperialistas y otras plagas by G.K. Chesterton Book Resume:

G.K. Chesterton, autor de novelas como El hombre que fue jueves y creador del famoso detective Padre Brown, fue ante todo un periodista que escribió miles de artículos para distintos medios. Su colaboración más longeva --de 1905 hasta su muerte en 1936-- fue en el semanario gráfico Illustrated London News. En sus artículos, que eran verdaderos ensayos, habló de sus contemporáneos con una visión que hoy sigue resultando fresca y reveladora. Ya escribiera de educación, prisiones, elecciones, moda, turismo, teatro, ritos sociales o historia, hizo siempre gala de un tono combativo, pero alegre y burlón. Apostó por el hombre común frente al experto; por la tradición y la costumbre arraigada frente a la moda caprichosa y pasajera; por la alegría de un mundo material que se nos dona y tiene un significado positivo frente al pesimismo filosófico que todo niega o duda. Realizado en colaboración con el Club Chesterton de la Universidad San Pablo CEU, el presente volumen es el segundo de esta serie donde el lector encontrará la misma genialidad, ironía, sentido común y vigor chestertonianos de siempre, desplegados a lo largo de textos donde, tratando asuntos cotidianos como el sufragio femenino o el vegetarianismo, indaga en la sociedad europea de su tiempo.

Hérétiques by Gilbert Keith Chesterton Book Resume:

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Gilbert-Keith Chesterton. A ses brillants débuts dans le journalisme politique et littéraire, Chesterton rencontre Winston Churchill, Henry James, Hilaire Belloc et tout ce que Londres compte de talents en tous genres. Sa lucidité, sa haute culture, son humour et ses dons de polémiste trouvent chaque jour une occasion de se manifester à travers les chroniques qu'il donne au "Daily News", toutes occupées par de retentissantes controverses: religieuses avec Robert Blatchford et Joseph Mac Cabe, sociales avec H. G. Wells, philosophiques ou littéraires avec Rudyard Kipling, George Moore, W.B. Yeats, George Bernard Shaw et bien d'autres. "Hérétiques" est le recueil des débats de ces années 1900-1905, peut-être pas si éloignés de ceux de notre société contemporaine. Ni philosophe, ni théologien, ni mystique, l'auteur du "Club des Métiers bizarres" et des "Histoires du Père Brown", qui s'est aussi dépeint lui-même comme "une sorte de Torquemada réactionnaire dont la joie ténébreuse est la poursuite des hérétiques", reste sans nul doute le plus puissant tempérament littéraire de l'Angleterre du XXe siècle.

Photography, Humanitarianism, Empire by Jane Lydon Book Resume:

With their power to create a sense of proximity and empathy, photographs have long been a crucial means of exchanging ideas between people across the globe; this book explores the role of photography in shaping ideas about race and difference from the 1840s to the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights. Focusing on Australian experience in a global context, a rich selection of case studies – drawing on a range of visual genres, from portraiture to ethnographic to scientific photographs – show how photographic encounters between Aboriginals, missionaries, scientists, photographers and writers fuelled international debates about morality, law, politics and human rights. Drawing on new archival research, Photography, Humanitarianism, Empire is essential reading for students and scholars of race, visuality and the histories of empire and human rights.

Le Secret du père Brown by Gilbert Keith Chesterton Book Resume:

Edition enrichie (préface, notes) « J’essaie d’entrer dans le meurtrier [...], pensant ses pensées, luttant avec ses passions, jusqu’à me retrouver tapi, aux aguets, dans la posture même de la haine qui l’habite. » Telle est la méthode du père Brown, le prêtre détective qui dénoue les intrigues des nouvelles de ce recueil : « L’homme invisible », « La ruelle mystérieuse », « Le livre maudit » et « Le secret du père Brown ». Avec son art du paradoxe et sa silhouette inattendue dans le Londres des années 1920, il est l’un des héros les plus mémorables de la littérature policière et fait de Chesterton l’héritier de Dickens et de Stevenson. Traduction, préface et notes de Claude Caillate.

Le Livre des snobs by William Makepeace Thackeray Book Resume:

On peut être Snob ou relativement ou positivement. Par Snobs positifs, j’entends ceux qui restent Snobs n’importe où ils se trouvent, qui ne cessent jamais de l’être du matin au soir, du berceau à la tombe, que la nature a faits Snobs par essence, tandis que d’autres ne font preuve de Snobisme que dans des cas particuliers ou en de certaines occurrences. Comme exemple, je citerai un homme qui jadis commit devant moi une action aussi abominable que celle dont je viens de faire mon mea culpa au précédent chapitre, et par laquelle je me proposais de dégoûter de ma société le colonel Snobley ; je veux parler de l’usage que je fis de ma fourchette en guise de cure-dent. Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.
