Greene remained a prolific writer in the last 30 years of his life. His late novels continually returned to old territories — the tension between loyalty and betrayal, innocence and corruption, and religious faith and political commitment — but with a sense of the changes that occurred in Catholicism and global politics. Greene treats his characters with a new sense of comic detachment. Although the tragic tension of his viewpoint has slackened, it still conveys a fresh imaginative vantage point to engage his literary and religious concerns.
