To categorise Chesterton’s tale "The Man Who Was Thursday" is near impossible and ultimately fruitless. Nightmare? Dream? Allegory? It matters little; like all Chesterton’s writing it is packed with rich imagery, whimsical humour and universal wisdom.
Like Gabriel Syme, at the conclusion of the story, we may not be quite sure whether we too, were dreaming or not.
Narrated by Simon Hester. With original music.
