Description
"In Arrowsmith (1925) Lewis portrays the medical education and career of Martin Arrowsmith, a physician wo finds his comittment to the ideals of his profession tested by the greed and opportunism he encounters in private practice, public health work, and scientific research. Elmer Gantry (1927) aroused intense controversy with its brutal depiction of a hypocritcal preacher in relentless pursuit of worldly pleasure and power. Dodsworth (1929) follows Sam Dodsworth, a wealthy, retired Midwestern automobile manufacturer, as he travels through England, France, and Germany, and Italy with his increasingly restless wife, Fran." The novel explores the contrasts between European high culture against the rude strength of ascendant American commersialism. --Publisher description.
