This paper aims to explore the valuable role of Sinclair Lewis as a writer in American literature, and to study the way in which he used totalitarian regimes as inspiration for his dystopian depiction of a fascist government in the United States in It Can’t Happen Here. It delves into the connections between this novel and the Nazi dictatorship in Germany, and also into how it can serve as a predictor of the most recent approaches to politics that have been developed in America by such politicians as Donald Trump.
