Graham Greene's Pattern in the Carpet

(p.3) 1 Catholicism
Graham Greene's Catholic Imagination

Mark Bosco (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that Catholicism is more textured and complicated than the usual schematic framework expounded in studies on Graham Greene and the Catholic novel. It carries out two separate but related investigations: a summary assessment and critique of the “Catholic” genre in 20th century literature and Greene’s place in this literary heritage; and an appraisal of Green’s own Catholicism as expressed in interviews, essays, and biographical details. The first part of the investigation will expand the historically conservative context that presently defines the Catholic novel. The second part demonstrates Greene’s ongoing dialogue with, and immersion in the theological development of Catholicism throughout his life.
