Hear Chesterton Talk!

This wonderful Youtube video contains clips from four speeeches, including a lengthy recording of a speech he made in Canada at a luncheon honouring Rudyard Kipling. One interesting aspect of this speech is that you can hear Chesterton laughing at his own jokes.

It seems to me that everybody in the 1930's spoke in exactly the same voice, but doubtless that's the same phenomenon as Westerners thinking that all Chinese people look the same.


  1. Hi M
    (ha! found your 'other' blog!)
    I can't seem to make the link to the youtube clips work ...

  2. I'm sorry about that! Hopefully this one will...

  3. OK, I think the link above should work now! Thanks for pointing that out!
