Graham Greene's Catholic Imagination

Mark Bosco


This book focuses on the importance of Catholicism in Graham Greene’s life and writings. In his 67 years of writing, Catholicism was always the thread that bound his literary preoccupations into a recognizable pattern. The chapters in this volume explore the development of Greene’s Catholic imagination by situating him in the two historical and theological milieus that dominate 20th century Catholicism: the Catholic revival in the first half of the century, and the Vatican II and post-Vatican II concerns that found new expression in his later novels.

Keywords: Graham Greene, Catholicism, Vatican II
