After publishing two collections of poems and two collections of essays, Chesterton wrote his first real book in 1903. John Morley, the editor of the “English Men of Letters” series, took a risk assigning the 29-year-old Chesterton to write a biography of Robert Browning. Chesterton had already gained something of a reputation as an “idiosyncratic” writer, with “a distinctive style and a riotous gift of paradox.” But Chesterton was worth the risk. With his Robert Browning, he took the literary world by storm. Critics praised the book, all of them duly affected even if they weren’t quite sure what to do about it, since critics resist being brought to their knees.
