Discrepancy of Graham Greene

Parastoo Asgharpur


Lack of religious sense in twentieth century made so many writers to object to the situation. One of these writers who had devoted a very challenging criticism to himself is Graham Greene. In criticizing Greene’s novels there has always been an argument that Is there any relationship between his novels and his personal life? In this article the role of Catholicism Graham Greene’s works and his own personal life has been examined. In order observe such a role we need a very detailed examination of Greene’s life, his personal letters, his conversations and his works. According to so many critics the close relationship between Greene’s life and his works is not ignorable. So by applying Biographical Criticism on Graham Greene it is obvious that about this writer the death of author does not work. The prominent figure of the writer seems to be present in each story and each action.
