The Innocence Of Father Brown from the Author: G.K. Chesterton. Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Harwich and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous—nor wished to be. There was nothing notable about him, except a slight contrast between the holiday gaiety of his clothes and the official gravity of his face. His clothes included a slight, pale grey jacket, a white waistcoat, and a silver straw hat with a grey-blue ribbon. His lean face was dark by contrast, and ended in a curt black beard that looked Spanish and suggested an Elizabethan ruff. He was smoking a cigarette with the seriousness of an idler. There was nothing about him to indicate the fact that the grey jacket covered a loaded revolver, that the white waistcoat covered a police card, or that the straw hat covered one of the most powerful intellects in Europe. For this was Valentin himself, the head of the Paris police and the most famous investigator of the world; and he was coming from Brussels to London to make the greatest arrest of the century.

The Annotated Innocence Of Father Brown from the Author: G. K. Chesterton. Father Brown, an ordinary priest whose unremarkable exterior conceals extraordinary crime-solving ability, is celebrated for his solutions to metaphysical mysteries, a genre perfected by his creator, G. K. Chesterton. More than lighthearted comedies built around puzzling crimes, these superbly written tales contain deeply perceptive philosophical reflections. The Innocence of Father Brown (1911) was the first collection of stories featuring the ecclesiastical sleuth and is widely considered the best. In this annotated edition of the collection, the Chesterton scholar Martin Gardner provides detailed notes and background information on various aspects of such stories as "The Blue Cross," "The Secret Garden," "The Invisible Man," "The Hammer of God," "The Eye of Apollo," and seven more, as well as an informative introduction and an extensive bibliography. Included also are eight illustrations reproduced from the first edition. The result is an indispensable companion for all Chesterton enthusiasts and a perfect introduction for anyone who has yet to meet the incomparable Father Brown.

Chesterton S The Innocence Of Father Brown from the Author: Berit Haberlag. Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, Technical University of Braunschweig, course: The Detective Story Inside and Outside the Classroom, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Gilbert Keith Chesterton started writing when he was still very young. He published hundreds of books and essays. His work consists of novels, short stories, poems and biographies. But today he is only known for his Father Brown stories and they are also the most widely read stories of all Chesterton’s writing. Furthermore, they are the form of art in which he was most successful. You can call them his masterpiece. The Father Brown Stories consist of five books. Two of them are pre-War. They “constitute a fascinating summary of Chesterton practising what he preached” (Hunter 1983, p.140). The first book of the Father Brown Stories is “The Innocence of Father Brown” consisting of twelve stories dealing with Father Brown. Then there is the “The Wisdom of Father Brown”, “The Incredulity of Father Brown”, “The Secret of Father Brown” and “The Scandal of Father Brown”. All these books were published between 1911 and 1935. In my work I will concentrate on the first collection of Father Brown Stories, “The Innocence of Father Brown” which was published in 1911 and was dedicated to Chesterton’s old friend Waldo D’Avigdor and his wife Mildred. From this collection I chose three stories (“The Queer Feet”, “The Hammer of God” and “The Sins of Prince Saradine”). I will give a summary of them and then I will compare them to find out differences or what is the same. After that I will talk about some striking elements in “The Innocence of Father Brown”. As Father Brown is the only character that counts in the Father Brown Stories I will characterise him and later on write of his attitudes and role in this book. With the help of what I found out, I will try to explain the title of “The Innocence of Father Brown”.

Father Brown from the Author: G. K. Chesterton. Father Brown is a small, round Catholic priest with a highly developed understanding of the criminal mind, derived from his time listening to men confess their sins. His diminutive presence disguises a powerful intellect and ability to solve the strangest crimes in the most fascinating manner. This collection of stories draws upon all five Father Brown books and demonstrates the considerable range of those tales. From the unparalleled invention of "The Blue Cross" to the bizarre mystery of "The Blast of the Book", these stories contain as much wisdom as they do wonder.

Pater Browns Einfalt from the Author: Gilbert Keith Chesterton. "12 Kurzgeschichten: - Das blaue Kreuz (The Blue Cross) - Der geheime Garten (The Secret Garden) - Die verdächtigen Tritte (The Queer Feet) - Die Sternschnuppen (The Flying Stars) - Der Unsichtbare (The Invisible Man) - Israel Gows Ehre (The Honour of Israel Gow) - Mißgestaltet (The Wrong Shape) - Die Sünden des Prinzen Saradin (The Sins of Prince Saradine) - Der Hammer Gottes (The Hammer of God) - Das Auge des Apoll (The Eye of Apollo) - Das Zeichen des zerbrochenen Schwertes (The Sign of the Broken Sword) - Die drei Todeswerkzeuge (The Three Tools of Death) Vater Brown ist ein englischer katholischer Pfarrer, der als Hobby Kriminalfälle löst. Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Dabei ist er aber weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Dabei spielt es für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person bekleidet. Zwischen 1910 und 1935 erschienen neunundvierzig Erzählungen von Chesterton über Father Brown, zunächst in Zeitschriften und anschließend zusammengefasst in mehreren Bänden. Browns einziger Freund ist der ehemalige Trickdieb Hercule Flambeau, der, von Brown bekehrt, zum Privatdetektiv wird. Es gibt übrigens ein reales Vorbild für Father Brown: Father John O’Connor von St. Custherberts, Bradford. Er war der Pfarrer, der Chestertons Konversion zum katholischen Glauben leitete. Die Fälle des Vater Brown sind bereits mehrmals für Kino und TV verfilmt worden. In Deutschland ist besonders die Verkörperung durch Heinz Rühmann bekannt. 1.
