Read full description of the books Ο τρίτος άνθρωπος:Rollo Martins, incurable ladies’ man and author of trashy novels set on The Wild West, accepts an invitation from his best friend Harry Lime and arrives in Vienna just in time to attend his funeral. But what’s really happened ? Seemingly accident, but testimony from eyewitnesses and Harry’s new friends are, to tell the truth, not credible. So Rollo, like a noble sheriff from his own stories, decides to solve the mystery. Well, easier said than done. With empty pockets, friendless in strange city it seems to be practically unfeasible. But as ones say fortune favours fools and Rollo by a happy coincidence mistaken for a known writer gains time, accommodation and some money. So he goes into town.
Vienna, beautiful city vibrant with life, full of monuments and green parks, resounded with Strauss music. No, no, we don’t get Vienna like that. In Greene’s novel Vienna, divided up in four occupation zones is a real ghost town, leveled to the ground, with Great Wheel on Prater overlooking the ruins . It is simply a city of undignified ruins which turned that February into great glacier of snow and ice .
To put it mildly that what Rollo would know about Harry was not too flattered. Involved in under-the-counter trade, what’s worse dealing in diluted penicillin ? Harry, this charming, witty Harry ? A racketeer ? No, it can’t be true. But if …?
The Third Man then is a depressing story enhanced by picture of destroyed city with some unexpectedly amusing moments, to mention Rollo’s soiree. It’s a story about disillusioned man, exposed criminal and broken friendship. Poor Rollo. Poor all of us, when you come to think of it .
But poor Harry ?
Read information about the authorHenry Graham Greene, OM, CH was an English novelist, short story writer, playwright, screenplay writer, travel writer and critic whose works explore the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world. Greene combined serious literary acclaim with wide popularity.
Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a “Catholic novelist” rather than as a “novelist who happened to be Catholic,” Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of his writing, especially the four major Catholic novels: Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The End of the Affair, and The Power and the Glory. Works such as The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana and The Human Factor also show an avid interest in the workings of international politics and espionage.
