Description

Graham Greene is among the major creative talents of our time. This study concentrates on his achievements as a novelist whose work spanned more than sixty years, and was translated into forty languages. As skilful in writing with humour as with seriousness, he combined the gifts of a superb story-teller with the power to analyse the political ills and human dilemmas of an age of anxiety. As a writer who ‘happened to be a Catholic’, he also reflected the problem of faith and belief in a time of persistent violence. This study describes his vision of the twentieth century, and his evolving dedication to his craft as a writer of fiction.
