Biographie de l'auteur :

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. He worked for some years as a free lance editor and journalist, during which time he published several minor novels. But with the publication of Main Street (1920), which sold half a million copies, he achieved wide recognition. This was followed by the two novels considered by many to be his finest, Babbitt (1922) and Arrowsmith (1925), which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1926, but declined by Lewis. In 1930, following Elmer Gantry (1927) and Dodsworth (1929), Sinclair Lewis became the first American author to be awarded the Nobel Prize for distinction in world literature. 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. From Main Street to Stockholm, a collection of his letters, was published in 1952, and The Man from Main Street, a collection of essays, in 1953. During his last years Sinclair Lewis wandered extensively in Europe, and after his death in Rome in 1951 his ashes were returned to his birthplace.

CLASSIC: NEW Library of America 1st edition hardcover (2002) 1st printing, new slipcase w/ double-ruled borders & LOA-logo on front panel & w/ sharp new edges & corners, new sand-tan rayon-weave Brillianta fabric-over-boards cover w/ as-new edges & corners, immaculate smooth-cut text-block exterior, new Smyth-sewn binding w/ tight signatures & bronze silk ribbon page-marker, impeccable white on rich-tan LOA-patterned front & back card-stock end-papers, pristine interior handsomely printed w/ elegant clarity in Linotron Galliard on superb silk-finish acid-free Ecusta-Nyalite paper * 5.0" x 8.12" x 1.52", 0.82 kg, 1346 pp. / With slipcase: 5.36" x 8.36" x 1.74", 0.93 kg * CONTENTS: Arrowsmith (1), Elmer Gantry (473), Dodsworth (915); Chronology (1303), Notes on the Texts (1335), Notes (1338) * Written at the height of his powers in the 1920s, the 3 novels in this volume continue the vigorous unmasking of American middle-class life begun by Sinclair Lewis in "Main Street" & "Babbitt". In "Arrowsmith" (1925) Lewis portrays the medical career of Martin Arrowsmith, a physician who finds his commitment to the ideals of his profession tested by the cynicism & opportunism he encounters in private practice, public health work, & scientific research. The novel reaches its climax as its hero faces his greatest challenges amid a deadly outbreak of plague on a Caribbean island. "Elmer Gantry" (1927) aroused intense controversy w/ its brutal depiction of a hypocritical preacher in relentless pursuit of worldly pleasure & power. Through his satiric exposé of American religion, Lewis captured the growing cultural & political tension in the 1920s between the forces of secularism and fundamentalism. "Dodsworth" (1929) follows Sam Dodsworth, a wealthy, retired Midwestern automobile manufacturer, as he travels through Europe w/ his increasingly restless wife, Fran. The novel intimately explores the unraveling of their marriage, while pitting the proud heritage of European culture against the rude vigor of American commercialism. * Sinclair Lewis was born in 1885 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, & graduated from Yale University in 1908.
