Walking Like A Queen - Irish Impressions
G. K. Chesterton$15.99
Everything Chesterton writes is filled with wit and wisdom—surely he was the twentieth century’s most perceptive writer. Here he sets out his thoughts about Catholic Ireland, following a visit in 1918 in which he met all the leading Irish thinkers. Against the backdrop of the First World War, about which he cared passionately, and the struggle for the right of the Irish to govern their own island, in which he had always believed, he narrates his visit and sets down his reflections and his previsions. No one interested in Ireland or in England, in politics or in religion or in literature will read this book without renewed astonishment at the author’s unfailing insight into whatever he touches on. This annotated edition provides over 100 new footnotes helping modern readers to understand contemporary allusions.
