This paper examines how literature is a vehicle for exploring morality rather than sermonizing about it. There are some exceptions as these are usually authors who are struggling with their faith and how it relates to what they know of human nature. Graham Greene's examination of Catholicism is one example and Nathaniel Hawthorne's relationship to Puritanism is another.
