Abstract

Graham Greene did not receive serious critical attention as a novelist until the publication of Brighton Rock in 1938. Even then, because he chose to subtitle it an "entertainment" many critics refused to consider it a serious novel at all, although it treats of evil working through a boy. Anyone who reads Brighton Rock immediately after "entertainments" such as A Gun for Sale or The Ministry of Fear cannot help noticing a deepening awareness of values in the author.
