by Sinclair Lewis
The novel examines the homogenizing influence of small town life, how it kills cultural diversity, and how hunger for money prevents its residents from pursuing insider interests. Main Street also deals with the struggles in developing a new relationship - whether private as in a marriage or public as with society - and the compromises necessary to adapt an individual personality to make the relationship successful.
