3.2 Reveal the main heroes of the novel “Arrowsmith” by S. Lewis. and match them with their description.



1.Madeleine Fox

A. A graduate student at Winnemac University, she attends the same college as Martin. She eventually becomes his fiancé, but is what Martin calls an "improver." She is a snobbish student of literature who tries to change people, including Martin, to fit her beliefs and her society.

2.Ira Hinkley

B. A classmate of Martin's, he is a preacher who tries to impose his religious beliefs on others. His path crosses Martin's more than once and he eventually betrays Martin. He believes he is doing "good" but is arrogant in his beliefs—most of which are narrow-minded, superior-minded, and colonial.

3.Doctor Vickerson

C. A country doctor in Elk Mills, he was Martin's first introduction to the world of medicine. He is not an all-together educated man although he is supportive of Martin. And, although he is an alcoholic, he is not altogether unlikable.

4.Max Gottlieb

D. A German Jew, he is Martin's mentor. He is a scientist rather than a physician. He is often seen as eccentric and as cold or lacking in compassion although he does have a deep belief in Martin. A patient man, he is utterly driven by a search for "truth" and is fully committed to the study of science.

5.Martin Arrowsmith

E. The novel's title character and protagonist, Martin is a curious young man whose life in the medical profession makes up the plot of the book. He is stubborn and inclined toward laboratory science, rather than the practice of being a physician. He has opposing characteristics and can be both cold and compassionate, both driven and easily swayed. Furthermore, he is a romantic at heart.

6. Leora Tozer

F. Martin's loyal wife, she is opinionated and yet completely supportive and understanding of Martin and his career. She is caring and although ambitionless herself, she is loving and a perfect fit for Martin.
