ChestertonChesterton is at his most witty in these two books. Heretics is a collection of essays and articles focused on those who pride themselves in their superiority to conservative views. Chesterton appraises literary figures who fall into that category, including Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler.Chestertons writing style and conclusions are often opposed to those of his contemporaries Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw.In Heretics, Chesterton calls Wilde: The same lesson [of the pessimistic pleasure-seeker] was taught by the very powerful and very desolate philosophy of Oscar Wilde.

It is the carpe diem religion- but the carpe diem religion is not the religion of happy people, but of very unhappy people. Great joy does not gather the rosebuds while it may- its eyes are fixed on the immortal rose which Dante saw.
