Summary: Babbitt is a total conformist, loyal to whoever serves his need of the moment an opportunist in his business and personal life. Outwardly he conforms. Inwardly, his soul is empty. Filled with rationalizations and sentimentality, he doesn t see his own corruption. With his portrait of George F. Babbitt, the conniving, rich real estate man from Zenith, Sinclair Lewis created one of the ugliest, yet most convincing figures in American literature. George E. Babbitt, a ...show moreconniving, prosperous real estate man from Zenith, Ohio, revels in his popularity, his success, and, especially, in the material rewards they bring. He bullies his wife, flirts with other women, and patronizes the less successful. But when his best friend is sent to prison for killing his wife, Babbitt's middle-class complacency is shattered, and he rebels, seeking a more "meaningful" life. His small revolt is quickly defeated, however, by public opinion and his own need for acceptance. Babbitt captures the flavor of America during the economic boom years of the 1920s, and its protagonist has become the symbol of middle-class mediocrity, his name an enduring part of the American lexicon. George Follansbee Babbitt is a middle-aged realtor living in Zenith, Ohio--the Zip City. He is unimaginative, self-important, and hopelessly middle class. Vaguely dissatisfied with his position, he grows determined to transcend his trivial existence and search for greater purpose. Raising thought-provoking questions while yielding hilarious consequences, Babbitt's quest for meaning is apt to remind every reader of someone he knows. ...show less
