Since you have already joined Enotes, you have available to you many study guides, as well as Homework Help, which has questions and answers on the topic that are of great assistance to students.

Graham Greene's novel, The Quiet American, is one of the works for which Enotes has the full Study Guide which contains 

  • Summaries
  • Analyses of themes and style
  • Character analyses
  • Historical and geographical settings
  • Explanation of the use of literary techniques
  • Explanations of political and social concerns
  • Critical essays by professionals
  • Homework Help (Q and As)

In addition to these helpful aids right here at Enotes, there are usually critical essays which can be accessed through libraries; these essays are available through such search devices as ERIC and JSTOR. Often universities have pdf files that are useful, as well.

Of course, you can always post your own individual questions on the Homework Help page under the topic of The Quiet American and the Enotes editors will assist you. The links below will connect you to the sources available on Enotes under Greene's title.

Thank you for using Enotes.
