G. K. Chesterton expert, Dale Alquist, has just released his new book which is ‘the missing Chesterton book’— in effect, the Chesterton autobiography, a biography in the sense that Chesterton has written about Shakespeare, Dickens, and others. The Complete Thinker is a short course in thinking, and an homage to the Apostle of Common Sense.

“G.K. Chesterton on Humor,” by Ian Ker

Recorded on:
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 7:00 PM
“G.K. Chesterton on Humor”
Ian Ker, University of Oxford
Ida Noyes, Third Floor Theatre
1212 East 59th Street

Co-sponsored by The Nicholson Center for British Studies, The American Chesterton Society, and the Literature and Philosophy Workshop

Chesterton regarded comedy as important an art form as tragedy. He thought humor was integral to Christianity as opposed to paganism, and it was an essential part of his philosophy of wonder.

Ian Ker has taught both English literature and theology at universities in the United States and Britain, where he is currently a member of the Oxford theology faculty. He is the author and editor of more than twenty books on Newman, including the standard biography which Oxford University Press reissued prior to Newman’s beatification. He is also the author of The Catholic Revival in English Literature 1845-1961, Mere Catholicism, and most recently, G. K. Chesterton: A Biography.
