Graham Greene

Graham Greene: In B&W (and Color Too)
Graham Greene, one of the master storytellers of the 20th century, was also the most cinematic of novelists. His universe was morally complex and ambiguous; his heroes, fallible and conflicted; his stories, dense, complicated, textured… yet always compelling and dramatically simple. Greene’s body of work (on both page and screen) spans decades and genres and is quite singularly brilliant: The Third Man, The Fallen Idol, Our Man in Havana, This Gun for Hire, The End of the Affair, Brighton Rock, and The Ministry of Fear, to name just a few. Greene also wrote about film and published voluminous reviews and essays. In this course, we will briefly survey the life and art of Graham Greene by reading excerpts of biography, autobiography, letters, short novels, writings on film, original screenplays, and, most of all, by watching the movies. This course counts as elective credit towards the FMMC major.
