Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe a psychological study made of three of Sinclair Lewis' novels in order to draw inferences about Sinclair Lewis' personality. The underlying idea is that a literary creation as a product of the author has a relationship to his personality. This idea stems from the work of such people as Freud who used artistic creation as a basis for the study of personality.
