GKC Poetry

For those who missed it, The American Conservative last year (2/16/04) ran a nice piece on GKC's poetry. Among choice passages, "It is this faith that allows Chesterton to gaze upon the 'proletarians' of the world and see not misery requiring bloody revolution to correct, but workmen of the divine." Chesterton's joyful poetry is "a scandal to the true-blue modern intellectual, who combines despairing sadness with fanatic utopian dreams."
