He published several other novels, before and after the 1920s, that were meant to tweak the sensibilities of the complacent middle-class. Today, as social issues are gaining prominence again in literary theory and criticism, Lewis is attracting renewed attention as a progressive and a reform novelist. In Sinclair Lewis: New Essay in Criticism, the first collection of original essays about Lewis, Hutchisson has gathered a sampling of the divergent approaches to Lewis studies that have appeared in the past several years.
