This biography of St. Francis examines the life of a pure artist, a man whose whole life was a poem. Yet St. Francis also acknowledged the mystic responsibility to communicate his divine experience. Chesterton examines the existence of the pure and the mystic artist in one man. The result is an understanding of St. Francis in both body and soul, two essential aspects because the Saint saw religion as a kind of love afair; both spiritual and material.
