The Annotated Thursday [Paperback]
by G. K. Chesterton, Martin Gardner

This is the first edition of Chesterton's masterpiece, "The Man Who Was Thursday", that explicates and enriches the complete text with extensive footnotes, together with an introductory essay on the metaphysical meaning of Chesterton's profound allegory. Gardner sees the novel's anarchists as symbols of our God-given free will, and the mysterious Sunday as representing Nature, with its strange mixture of good and evil when considered as distinct from God, as a mask hiding the transcendental face of the creator. The book also includes a bibliography listing the novel's many earlier editions and stage dramatizations, as well as numerous illustrations that further illuminate the text. Illustrated.

Ignatius Press (October 1999). Trade paperback. 290 pages.
