Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936), better known as G. K. Chesterton, was an English writer, poet, philosopher, dramatist, journalist, orator, lay theologian, biographer, and literary and art critic. Chesterton is often referred to as the „prince of paradox.” Time magazine has observed of his writing style: „Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out.”
