Graham Greene (1904-1991) was one of England's most distinguished authors and to this day has a worldwide audience for his works. He was a powerful voice for human rights in places such as Latin America, South Africa, Haiti, and Vietnam and a relentless analyst of the inner moral conflicts that beset people as they deal with problems common to all human existence. Understanding Graham Greene provides a clear, succinct guide to the major writings of Greene's career, such as It's a Battlefield, England Made Me, The Heart of the Matter, The Quiet American, and Travels with My Aunt. Throughout this volume R. H. Miller explores the merits of each selection and delineates how it represents Greene's overarching concerns with civil liberties. Such analysis provides a moral pathway by which readers can explore the many aspects of Greene's art. Also included are studies of Greene's plays, stories, and essays, as well as a selected bibliography of Greene's books and criticisms of his work.
