Good Ideas, But Low Quality
I will make some some copy-edits, but sheesh, it is like a bad high school essay in parts:
- There is some criticism toward the novel concerning the seemingly lack of direction and endless description.
- Controversy about the small-town portrayal of vicious back-stabbers and hypocrites was also probably a factor in the novel's popularity; in 1920, it was a heralded thought to live in an area like Gopher Prairie--a notion hilariously denounced with Main Street's powerful inculcation.

Also, the words "smug conservatism" were amusing, particularly in light of the more modern problem of smug liberals. I did not change it, of course, because it would instantly be reverted and it would be falsely claimed that somebody had been vandalizing Liberalpedia, er, Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:42, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
