Let me recommend the excellent Stratford Caldecott’s typically excellent new book, Beauty in the Word:
Stratford, though a subject of Her Royal Majesty Elizabeth II, is nonetheless kindly disposed to his Yankee cousins and was one of the best parts of a magnificent post-conference banquet held by the American Chesterton Society in Minneapolis/St. Paul in 2005. To hear him tell a joke about Heisenberg being pulled over for speeding is a transcendent experience. Buy his book. He’s great!
