The Greene/ing of the Catholic Novel

Show Summary Details


Greene began his writing career at a time when religion, particularly Catholicism, was undergoing a revival in philosophy and literature. This chapter situates Greene during this Catholic revival, which artistically embodied a “kind” of Catholicism most apparent in French Catholic authors of the early 20th century. He wrote some of his best and most famous novels during this period. Two of these, The Power and the Glory and The End of the Affair are discussed.
