"Mark Bosco frames his investigation of Greene's life and work in terms of theological developments in Catholic discourse before and after Vatican Council II. He begins by looking at Greene's creative appropriation of the historically fixed notions of the Catholic literary revival in the early part of the 20th century, as illustrated by his novels The Power and the Glory and The End of the Affair. He follows with a discussion of the Council and the changes it ushered in."--BOOK JACKET."
