Graham Greene's labyrinthine entertainments" - Characters and characterisation in A Gun for Sale, Stamboul Train, and The Confidential Agent
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis will explore three literary works, labelled entertainments" by their author Graham Greene. By engaging in an in-depth reading of the characters and how they are characterised, I will investigate the complexity of the narratives1. I will focus the works A Gun for Sale (1936), Stamboul Train (1932) and A Confidential Agent (1939). I have chosen these three narratives because they were written and published in the 1930s, and due to the similar themes they address. I will analyse the three narratives in order to show that, primarily due to the unexpected facets of the characters and how they are characterised, the narratives are surprisingly complex.
