Graham Greene

  • Catholic Temper in Poland

    English novelist and ardent Roman Catholic‚ GRAHAM GREENE returned from an extended visit in Poland last autumn with these impressions of how a patriotic and intensely religious people reacts to its governors from Russia. Mr. Greene is widely known to Americans for his versatile writing: his psychological thrillers (This Gun for Hire and The Third Man); his serious novels on deeply religious themes (Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, and Fhe End of the Affair); and his first play, The Living Room, which aroused a good deal of controversy when it was produced in New York in 1954. Mr. Greene’s new novel‚ The Quiet American, is being published by Viking this month.
