‘Evil in Our Century’

An interview with the noted British author Anthony Burgess about his best-selling book Earthly Powers appeared in the French newsmagazine L’Express. “The book deals with the manifestations of evil, its emergence in our century, and our inability to fight it,” explained Burgess. “Politicians encourage it, artists look the other way, and even great churchmen like the Pope condone it. That is the image of our world since World War I.”

The author observed that evil since that time is different: “No historian has ever interpreted [terrible periods in history] as eruptions of evil”—merely “blunders” in attempting “to build a better world.” Now, though, says Burgess, “we begin to believe in a supernatural force with which man made a compact for destruction, or which he allowed to take control of him.”
