BiblioFiles #63: "A Defence of Penny Dreadfuls" by G.K. Chesterton


The CenterForLit crew is on a quest to discover what respected artists and thinkers have to tell us about good reading! This week we’re looking at a little essay by G.K. Chesterton: “A Defence of Penny Dreadfuls.” It is certainly Chesterton at his finest, and we have a lot of fun savoring his witty bon mots and chewing on his insightful wisdom.
