Trifles? No. Chesterton goes deep even when he seems to have a light touch. The essays gathered here are a testament to . Chesterton’s faith-not his faith in religion or a higher power, but in the ability to discover something wonderful in the objects, the experiences, and the people that cross our paths every single day. With his unique brand of humor and insight, he demonstrates how the commonplace adds enormous value to the landscape of daily life.

Tremendous Trifles book. Chesterton has been called the Prince of Paradox. Chesterton uses his compilation of essays in Tremendous Trifles as a guide to reflect on everyday life. Among this collection: A Piece of Chalk -where a drawing exercise turns into a lesson on the nature of truth, Twelve Men -an explanation on why we have juries made of our peers and not professional jurors, The Dragon's Grandmother -on why we should read fairy tales to our children along with many more endearing reflections.

by G. K. (Gilbert Keith) Chesterton (Author). This book contains my first encounter with Chesterton, a brief essay called "On Lying in Bed", which I still think one of his best. But when I began this book, although I avidly devour . s novels, and some of his nonfiction, like Orthodoxy, this one didn't hold me. I returned to it now and then, as one does, after reading rather more gripping reads.

Let us learn to write essays on a stray cat or a coloured cloud. I have attempted some such thing in what follows; but anyone else may do it better, if anyone else will only try. (Gilbert Keith Chesterton). First Page: TREMENDOUS TRIFLES. They amount to no more than a sort of sporadic diary a diary recording one day in twenty which happened to stick in the fancy the only kind of diary the author has ever been able to keep.

British writer GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936) expounded prolifically about his wide-ranging philosophies-he is impossible to categorize as "liberal" or "conservative," for instance-across a wide variety of avenues: he was a literary critic, historian, playwright, novelist, columnist, and poet. Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He began his education at St Paul's School, and later went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress.

For three days and three nights the sea had charged England as Napoleon charged her at Waterloo.
