A prolific writer, Chesterton wrote studies of Browning (1903) and Dickens . Chesterton's New Style in Apologetics By Coates, John Renascence: Essays on Values in Literature, Vol. 61, No. 4, Summer 2009.

A prolific writer, Chesterton wrote studies of Browning (1903) and Dickens (1906); several novels including The Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904) and The Man Who Was Thursday (1908), a metaphysical terrorist thriller; a noted series of crime stories featuring Father Brown as detective; many poems, collected in 1927; and his famous essays, collected in Tremendous Trifles (1909) . An amusing artist, he also illustrated books by Hilaire Belloc, his friend and collaborator.

Now-retired scholar of English literature Coates seeks to rehabilitate British writer Chesterton (1874-1936) from his reputation as a minor writer or colorful period figure. He argues that his books on Browning and Victorian literature and his detective fiction continue to be important, and remain central to many current issues. He considers the modernist cultural context, the political formation of a speaking style, the Edwardian novel of ideas, the essay form, and Chesterton as a literary critic. The text is double spaced.
