Freedom as an Uncertain Cause in Graham Greene's Novels. A Philosophical and Literary Analysis
Product unavailable

Jan Kłos
Pages: 228
Format: B5
Year: 2012
Language: English

Freedom and its challenges are always associated with man's concrete situation. Freedom occurs in a certain entanglement that depends on personal and social factors. Because of human bad habits and addictions, the space of freedom may be radically reduced, so that one who is supposed to make a free decision gives up, evades, becomes frightened, and runs away. Similarly, the external situation has an enormous impact on freedom. Man can be born in a totalitarian regime, live in constant fear for himself and his close friends. He may surrounded by informers and traitors; he is permanently deceived.
This book focuses on such heroes. Such is the world of Graham Greene - a writer who had made the experience of freedom the main area of his literary explorations. Nothing is simple and unambiguous in this world, the good walks side by side with the evil, words mean something else than usual. The book invites readers to the world of such difficult challenges of freedom. At the same time it encourages them to abstain from condemning judgments, and consoles them that irrespectively of his circumstances man is a free being. The fact that he is free makes him responsible.
