The Power and the Glory is considered Greene’s greatest novel. It is based on actual events in Mexico in 1926, when the revolutionary government of President Plutarco Elias Calles attempted to eradicate Roman Catholicism entirely. The worst persecutions occurred in the state of Tabasco, where Governor Tomas Canabal succeeded in driving every priest from his domain. Like many of Greene’s other works, it deals with religious themes, features a hunted man in a deplorable environment, and focuses on the inner spiritual struggles of a weak and sinful protagonist who is unable to live up to his ideals. He is painfully aware of his own sin, to a degree rarely found in human experience, let alone in literature. Through his personal struggles, he learns compassion for the sins and weaknesses of others, even to the extent of being able to minister to and forgive the worst of his persecutors and betrayers.

Review:

"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists, rich in exactly etched and moving portraits of real human beings" (V. S. Pritchett)

"The power and energy of his finest novel derive from the will toward compassion, and ideal communism even more Christian than Communism. Its unit is the individual, not any class" (John Updike)

"No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene" (The Times)

"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" (John Le Carre)

"The Power Tnd The Glory's nameless whisky priest blends seamlessly with his tropical, crooked, anticlerical Mexico. Roman Catholicism is intrinsic to the character and terrain both; Greene's imaginative immersion in both is triumphant" (John Updike)

Book Description:

A masterpiece by one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, with a new reading guide included.
