The Pulitzer Divorce (1983). Essay about injustice in divorce in
America, especially when the wife is poor and young, and the husband
is older and rich.
Incident of the French Camp. Poem about a boy soldier meeting
Napoleon as he is cut down. A sad tale of war, and all the sadder because nothing has changed and boys (and girls now) are still dying in stupid wars.
The End of the Party (1929). A weird story that was boring at first
as it seemed to drag on and on. The ending was strange, and I still
wonder why Francis was so frightened when his twin was not. A
well-crafted story, but for me (living some 84 years after it was
written), I thought it needed some editing and tightening up. Which
is probably more a reflection on our shorter attention spans than on
Greene's genius as a story teller.
