  • Main Street is a satirical novel written by Sinclair Lewis, and published in 1920. The story is set in the small town of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota, a fictionalized version of Sauk Centre, Minnesota, Lewis's hometown. The novel takes place in the 1910s, with references to the start of World War I, the United States' entry into the war, and the years following the end of the war, including the start of Prohibition. Satirizing small-town life, Main Street is perhaps Sinclair Lewis's most famous book, and led in part to his eventual 1930 Nobel Prize for Literature. It relates the life and struggles of Carol Milford Kennicott as she comes into conflict with the small-town mentality of the residents of Gopher Prairie. Highly acclaimed upon publication, Main Street remains a recognized American classic. (en)

  • Main Street (em português: Rua Principal) é um livro de autoria de Sinclair Lewis publicado em 1920. Considerado seu maior sucesso literário, foi lançado após Nosso Mr. Wrem (título original: Our Mr. Wrenn) e A Trilha do Falcão (título original: The Trail of the Hawk), obras que não empolgaram, tanto em crítica quanto em público. Rua Principal mostra o tédio e a aridez intelectual dos pequenos centros do oeste americano quando uma moradora do leste se casa com um médico e muda-se para uma retrógrada cidade do interior. (pt)
