He often refers to his ruthless power of vision or insight, that is denied to others - “Me, I know everything. Remember that.” Thus, Foucault’s panopticon model of surveillance can definitely find a suitable literary example in the figure of the detective. The mechanism of power which requires the subject to confess to a higher authority, that is the detective can be categorized under what Foucault describes as “pastoral power” and one could argue that the detective represents a pastoral power that needs to rely on insight rather than simply a panoptic power that is based entirely on sight. We can then read the detective as an embodiment of Foucault’s “pastoral” power who relies for his functioning on a kind of management of confessions from the suspects, that can allow us to better comprehend some of the nuances of the workings of the modes of power represented by detective fiction.

He is preoccupied with faith and religion in many of his serious novels. For instance in Brighton Rock, while showing that Pinkie is a product of his social environment and traumatic childhood experiences, Greene also goes on to interpret his condition theologically.
