    One thought on “The Poet and the Lunatics”

    1. The Poet and the Lunatics is a collection of G.K Chesterton short stories centered around poet and some time painter, Gabrielle Gale, who either solves crimes committed by lunatics or prevents them before they happen In the opening story, Gale, himself is so eccentric, you aren t altogether sure whether he is the keeper or the kept In subsequent tales, he continues to mystify in his methods One is frequently reminded of Chesterton s other renown sleuth, Father Brown, although Gale s behavior and [...]

    2. Chesterton takes his paradoxical, sometimes upside down view of the world about as far as it can go wonderful results and insights.

    3. Chesterton traz algo de Tolkien na descri o dos contos Faz uma descri o agradabil ssima do ambiente, das personagens, do enredo Ler os contos como tomar um banho quente e relaxante ap s um dia de trabalho ou quem sabe tomar uma gelada em um dia muito quente Quero dizer que um prazer relaxante.Recomendo ler como um entre livros , pois a leitura flui r pido e exercita o ritmo de leitura.

    4. Publicado originalmente en anunusualstory Si eres de los listos y afortunados locos que siguen el blog no ser para ti ning n secreto que Gilbert Keith Chesterton es uno de mis escritores predilectos Ya habl aqu de Ortodoxia, uno de mis libros favoritos, y tambi n de vez en cuando te he tra do alg n texto suyo Sin embargo, el libro de hoy era desconocido hasta para m , y eso que he curioseado m s de una vez la bibliograf a del hombre monta a ingl s.Por eso, al igual que el pobre infeliz se encuen [...]

    5. En principio encontr el libro aburrido, y creo que se debe a que el primer relato es casi ininteligible hasta que has le do el ltimo.Mis favoritos han sido los siguientes El p jaro amarillo , que trata el problema de la libertad de manera original El dedo de piedra , que aborda de un modo singular la cuesti n de la vanidad y la honradez que pueden acompa ar a la ciencia, sin que sea una excepci n al conocimiento humano en general La casa del pavo real Puro Chesterton una situaci n que te hace fl [...]

    6. Nobody can touch Chesterton for evoking weather and skies and atmosphere Sometimes these are fairly incidental to his work, but in this they often take centre stage I love Chesterton for this and many other facets of his writing so why only 4 stars Because the notion of lunatics is even jarring nowadays than his casual anti semitism And I just couldn t stifle my unease at the central premise Shame.

    7. Chesterton s central conceit, in this loosely connected series of short stories, is that although the world at large thinks Gabriel Gale, poet and painter, to be a species of lunatic, in fact he is a keeper, or guardian, of lunatics, since he knows the manner in which their minds work Hmm Afraid I was not totally convinced on that score.

    8. I really and enjoyed this book I recommend anything by G K Chesterton Just who is the Poet and who are the Lunatics Read it and find out I have read this book multiple times and enjoy it each time

    9. I think I ll keep a shop in Croydon and marry someone who is into church work I need to have limits to live a life.
