Be the first to review this product

A group of anarchists dedicated to overthrowing the world order are under surveillance by Scotland Yard, and Detective Gabriel Syme must infiltrate their ranks. Dreamlike, prophetic, and funny, "The Man Who Was Thursday" is a fast-moving and surreal boys' own detective story, and a highly anarchic take on anarchy.Widely considered Chesterton's masterpiece, "The Man Who Was Thursday" (subtitled "A Nightmare" by Chesterton) is firmly rooted in its time and place - a phantasmagoric turn-of-the-century London where police are poets and anarchists abound. Our hero, Police Detective (and poet) Gabriel Syme, is chosen by Scotland Yard to undertake a top secret undercover mission: he must infiltrate the Central European Council of Anarchists. Each of the seven-member Council goes by the name of a weekday, and Syme himself is elected 'Thursday'. Syme must avoid discovery, undo his new colleagues, and save the world. But the further he is drawn into this world beyond humanity, the more he fears the worst - what if the council are on the side of right?
