Characters ↠ Orthodoxy Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free On argues that people in Western society need a life of practical romance the combination of something that is strange with something that is secure We need so to view the world as to combine an idea of wonder and an idea of welcome Drawing on such figures as Fr Angelico George Bernard Shaw and St Paul to make his points Chesterton argues that submission to ecclesiastical authority is the way to achieve a good and balanced lifePublic Domain P2011 Tanto. A complex work of great scope that I will need to read a few times Chesterton uses metaphors to explain the meaning of his theses and the reader must work to comprehend what they signify on different levels I find it amazing that this was first published in 1908 Its ideas refer to but are so independent from the philosophies of that time as though it were written today looking back on them rather than their contemporaryI ll not write a comprehensive review but just wish to list some of the things that particularly impressed me on first reading Chesterton asserts that the only fitting way for us to consider the world is with a sense of wonder Thus the world of fairy tales with its magic and mystery is closer to reality than the most naturalistic world described by science I agree I need to think about this some Then rather than focusing on the limitations placed on us in the world we should consider the greatness of the world that has been given to us with this whole world at our disposal is it not natural that there should be a limit the very boundaries of which ensure that we can dance and play on the top of the hill without the worry of falling off the cliff boundaries which allow us to live most fully and without fearOn another theme he asserts that the problem with contemporary literature is that it is often centred around extraordinary strange protagonists who do even strange things and so the reader finds them uninteresting because they cannot relate to them The classics he counters wrote about ordinary people who did extraordinary things and so they are interesting and the reader can relate The same thought had occurred to me when bored with a contemporary novel why does the protagonist have to be so strange And the contemporary stories I love I now realise are often based on an ordinary character who has the courage to do something extraordinary This would be worth exploring further an article perhaps And I loved the last chapters when he writes with wonder of the person of Jesus shown in the Gospels a God who is not afraid to let his tears be seen and sometimes his anger and yet who has a certain shyness and reserve that gives him an intriguing attractive depth I ve often thought the sameAnd so many ideas that I ll need to consider slowly
