qm, I am always sorry to
disagree with Fr. Martindale, but I am afraid I can accept none of his praise of Mr. Graham Greene except the praise of his technique. Mr. Greene is undoubtedly a writer of great virtuosity, but so is Tennessee Williams.
Both are sensationalists. one of sensuality the other of moral and religious struggle. The core of their work is melodrama. I do not believe there is any profundity in the work hi either man.
As for your own editorial cornrnent. I can only say that 1 believe Mr. Graham Greene has done much to confuse the minds of Catholic and non-Catholic alike. I do not for a moment doubt his intentions, hut I remain convinced that his influence is harmful. Colm Brogan 17 Monkhams Avenue,
