This essay analyzes the important role of children in Graham Greene's 1940 novel, "The Power and the Glory". The author notes that the role of the children is important because they personify faith and the inherent goodness of the human soul. To support this theme, the author created young characters such as the illegitimate daughter of a whiskey-drinking protagonist, who hates him, and whose love he wants more than anything in the world; and a boy who meets the priest at the beginning of the novel and whose life is changed by the priest's death as a martyr.
