Lewis may have thus fictionalized in this novel Irving Babbitt's deep interest for the romantic equation as reflected especially in Rousseau's works, laying stress on the fact that Babbitt the critic had failed in his analysis of romanticism, because civilization (therefore convention and conformism) absorbed him, just as the paradisian delights of the creative imagination absorb the mind of the artist.
Carol Kennicot of the city of Gopher Prairie in Main Street, for instance, imagined the ideal paradisian location for her "a reed hut on fantastic piles above the mud of a jungle river," a vision that surely suggests a Rousseauistic reverie of the kind Irving Babbitt profoundly criticized and which was probably influenced by Ebenezer Howard's Garden cities of tomorrow.
