lt;DIV Sinclair Lewis was born in 1885 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, and graduated from Yale University in 1908. His college career was interrupted by various part-time occupations, including a period working at the Helicon Home Colony, Upton Sinclair’s socialist experiment in New Jersey. This was the apogee of his literary career, and in the period from Ann Vickers (1933) to the posthumously published World So Wide (1951) Lewis wrote ten novels that reveal the progressive decline of his creative powers.
Dodsworth (1929) is the fifth book in what is considered the most productive years of Sinclair Lewis’s life. His breakthrough book was Main Street in 1920 followed by Babbitt in 1922, Arrowsmith in 1925 and Elmer Gantry in 1927. These five books were what earned him the Nobel Prize in 1930 with most of the emphasis given to the influence of Babbitt on literature.
