Growth, Psychology, Brighton Rock
A major literary trend in twentieth century Western literature is psychological realism in the novel. Henry James, generally acknowledged as a master in this field of writing, set the pattern for this type. It is difficult to follow a literary form that has been well developed by another author, particularly a writer like James; yet, this is what Graham Greene has attempted to do. In his fictional works, Greene has used some of the insights that he gleaned from reading Henry James, whom he "ranks with the greatest of creative writers"
