Lesson 1 (from Part 1, Chapter 1)
Part 1, Chapter 1
The student will take notes from the teacher about Graham Greene, the novelist, and THE POWER AND THE GLORY, the novel.
The student will give opinions about the benevolence of religious organizations versus the benevolence of the state.
1. The teacher will lecture on Graham Greene while eliciting any information the students may have. Greene is most commonly thought of in terms of political espionage tales of undercover agents, although that is not the exclusive area of his distinguished career. Many critics consider THE POWER AND THE GLORY to be his crowning achievement. This novel is much more about ideals than it is about personalities.
2. The teacher will have the students take notes on the novel, discussing the unique literary approach of not giving names to the central characters. The class will discuss what purpose this serves in a novel.
