The purpose of this study is to evaluate the novels written by Sinclair Lewis, in an effort to determine whether the facts in them presented are accurate or not and if his satire is justified by existing conditions. Some critics have bitterly attacked Lewis because he satirized society . Since Lewis, who wrote concerning many social problems in the period between 1910-1950 , was a popular writer, a study of his novels is pertinent . Surely, no one else serves so well as he to illustrate the relationship between literature and a practical world which he portrays and holds up to judgment .
