Synopsis of Elmer Gantry?
â??Elmer Gantryâ?? by Sinclair Lewis is a satirical novel that shows just how far a person without ethics can go. Elmer begins as a college athlete with aspirations to go into Law. Once he determines Law is not the career for him, he slips into alcoholism. While drunk, he mistakenly gets ordained as a minister. He is completely ruthless and sees this as an opportunity, stopping at nothing in order to achieve his goals. He eventually becomes a Methodist minister. He meets and decides to promote a talented but naive, young evangelist, who he also takes as his lover. Although he loses both her and his career after a deadly fire, he still manages to marry well and come out the winner in the end.

A synopsis is the summary of the plot of another work. It tends to list the events in the order in which they were written, and is much shorter than the work it is summari…zing. A brief summary or general survey of something. An outline of the plot of a play, film, or book.
A pickle without a jar.
