Mantrap is Sinclair Lewis’s 1925 novel of an effete Eastern lawyer’s trip into the wilderness where he competes for the affection of the beautiful but bored city wife of a more competent backwoodsman. Scholars studying gender roles in the 1920’s have been interested in this book for what it says about the society’s conflicting values for men of brawn and brain. Humorously, some critics find significance in the title not knowing that Lewis and his brother Claude actually had an adventure on a river in Canada named Mantrap.—Minnesota Historical Society.

Author Bio for Lewis, Sinclair

Author Image

Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) was a noted American writer. He became known in the 1920s for his books that satirized the spartan materialism and intolerance that typified life in small towns across the country. The word 'babbitt' (his book by that name written in 1922), is still used as a synonym for middle-class philistinism. He refused the Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith (1925) but accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, becoming the first American to be awarded that prize. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
