Portrayal of society in the novels of Sinclair Lewi
Lewis is a critic of his times. He depicts life and society as he sees them. Lewis does not believe in false idealisation of things. Instead, he expresses the sickness and misery of the American Society Lewis has been often called the “Dickens of America”. The peculiar mixture of radicalism and orthodoxy in dickens’ political and social views was much like Lewis’s. Not unlike Dickens, Lewis was always highly critical of American prolities.
