Chesterton has often been uoted and he has a reputation as one of the most insightful Christian thinkers of his generation As a result I started reading orthodoxy but found it hard to connect with it s vibe Picking up a father Brown volume as a free ebook I read it to see if I could get a softer introduction into GKs angle on things Alas I didn t really get father brown either Maybe it worked for a previuos generation but I found the depiction of father brown trite whilst the stories seemed too contrived was I supposed to sleuth them out for myself I didn t find solutions in the text as only fb had those certainly the traditional detective approachwhere the reader is gradually discovering the truth with the detective is absent Apparently it is the fathers insight into human nature which solves the crime but this was only apparent for me in the last of the stories Perhaps another time

Chesterton µ 0 Free download And the young woman of the house asked Dr Hood with huge and silent amusement what does she want Why she wants to marry him cried Father Brown sitting up eagerly That is just the awful complication It is indeed a hideous enigm. I ve only read one Father Brown short story before this and was very much enjoying the others And then I had to come abruptly into the racism in the story The God of the Gongs If it hadn t been for that story I could have rated this a lot higher rather than sitting and pondering the casual racism of the time 1910 for this collection The one story almost made me want to rate the whole as a one star but to be fair that s based on that one story and how angry it made me I ve been waffling between two and three stars for this and it s completely hinging on my reaction to that one storyAs an aside I should mention that it s not that I m not used to racism in stories from this time sadly In fact I often wonder if when some schoolsparents raise issues about teaching Huckleberry Finn if the teachers shouldn t have students read some of the era s stories with overt and casual racism that have characters much less well developed than Jim As much as I dislike it I don t think we should refrain from making it clear that these thoughtsattitudesstereotypes were in a lot of the literature There are a a few authors I still enjoy despite their racism Lovecraft for instance but that doesn t mean I don t stop and cringe every time it comes up even if I expect it I just can t overlook this even with the poor excuse of that s the way everyone wrotethought When no not everyone did So there s the struggle you can t exactly avoid it but you well I certainly can t enjoy itWhile several of the other stories have Italian or French characters that are stereotypical the black characters of The God of the Gongs are much much worse It s not just the repeated use of the word nigger or the fact that one character s name is Nigger Ned it s the way all the black characters are described72% in He was buttoned and buckled up to his bursting eyeballs in the most brilliant fashion A tall black hat was tilted on his broad black head a hat of the sort that the French wit has compared to eight mirrors But somehow the black man was like the black hat He also was black and yet his glossy skin flung back the light at eight angles or It is needless to say that he wore white spats and a white slip inside his waistcoat The red flower stood up in his button hole aggressively as if it had suddenly grown there And in the way he carried his cane in one hand and his cigar in the other there was a certain attitude an attitude we must always remember when we talk of racial prejudices something innocent and insolent the cake walkSometimes said Flambeau looking after him I m not surprised that they lynch them If you can t understand why after reading the uote there were numerous things there that pissed me off well I can t help you Besides the stereotypes in the description of dress there s the concept that you can wear clothes and walk in a way which supposedly everyone reads as insolent And the line about lynching just no Sorry can t deal with the illogic and unfairness of this portrayalIt doesn t make it any better that Father Brown is given a speech or two which I m going to assume is supposed to preach tolerance76% in I dare say he has some Italians with him but our amiable friends are not Italians They are octoroons and African half bloods of various shades but I fear we English think all foreigners are much the same so long as they are dark and dirty Also he added with a smile I fear the English decline to draw any fine distinction between the moral character produced by my religion and that which blooms out of VoodooI get the attempted message here but after the previous uote plus I ve not uoted it s not enough The ugliness of everyone thinks this way blots out any message of tolerance Especially when the end of the story has to do with all blacks in the UK being under suspicion of the law and the public because of the murders by a group Trying to preach tolerance in this context makes Chesterton seem smug self satisfied and completely unaware of how much stronger the stereotypes are than the platitudesI enjoy the way Chesterton writes but I m not totally sold on the character of Brown I got tired of the repeated descriptions of how child like he is Still if anything keeps me from finishing the rest of Chesterton I have several ebooks it will be the bad impressions of this one story It s going to take me a while to get those images out of my head
