By vupputuri prasada rao, 2011-09-14 11:12:37.0

Graham Greene's novel Power and Glory celebrates ambivalence that one is baffled to find in many of the focal characters in the novel. As a word belonging to the domain of Psychology, ambivalence is "the coexistence within an individual of positive and negative feelings toward the same person, object, or action, simultaneously drawing him or her in opposite directions". The contrary pulls are obviously dismantled by the novelist.The whistky priest acts against the injunction of the Catholic Church and fathered a child. His name sheds much light on the nefarious ways that he has clung to. Notwithstanding the ungodly ways, he displays great heroism to attend to the confession of the dying man though he suspects that the one who ( The Mestizo) has informed about it would enact Judas' role. So is the case with the lieutenant who is hell-bent on capturing the whisky priest as he despises catholic creed and more importantly as he is obliged to obey the authorities' dictates. He is convinced that socialist pattern of society can redeem people from their poverty. Here is a novel which delineates characters in many shades. One quality shades off into another revealing an another aspect. The beauty of the novel indeed is in its prismatic quality. Dr V. Pala Prasadara Rao JKC College, Guntur-6
