Graham Greene – The Power and the Glory


The Power and the Glory is often cited as one of Greene’s best works, and I can see why – that said, it does have its problems. As the title implies, it’s about religion – specifically, about a Catholicwhiskey priest‘ who travels through Mexico in search of whiskey and holiness, preferably at the same time. I might not be able to relate to the religious nature of the work, but I can get on board with a whiskey priest.

One of the interesting points about this novel is that the protagonist is never named, and I’m pretty sure that it’s deliberate – it’s a reference to the sheer number of nameless, wandering holy men of the time. A good place to start.
