"Meeting held at Reckitt House, LP. 21.10.36<br/>     E. B. Castle in the Chair.<br/> 1. Minutes of last read + approved.<br/> <br/> [...]<br/> <br/> 5. E. B. Castle gave us some biographical facts of G. K Chesterton’s career.<br/> <br/> 6. We then had a part of a paper written by Kenneth F. Nicholson on Chesterton. He gave us a good picture of G.K.C. as a man, showing the essentials of the later Chesterton already there in his earlier career. Kenneth Nicholson stressed the simplicity and genuineness of G.K.C.’s poetry, and his great love of the English characteristics. K. F. Nicholson also read very tellingly several extracts from his poetry<br/> <br/> 7. Elizabeth Alexander read a short paper on G.K.C. contributed by H. M. Wallis on the corruscations[?] and back somersaults thrown by Chesterton in earlier years, and on his association with Bernard Shaw. While anxious to credit any assertion of H.M.W.’s some members of the Book Club, who knew of Chesterton only in the last 40 years of his life, found it difficult to accept the suggestion that G.K.C. never carried much weight.<br/> <br/> This paper was concluded by a reading of Chesterton’s “The Donkey.”<br/> <br/> 8. R. H. Robson then read two or three extracts from the Critical Essays, with particular reference to Bernard Shaw and Dante.<br/> <br/> 9. V. W. Alexander read The Hammer of God, a short story from “The Innocence of Father Brown[”]."
