Ayn Rand was the author of « Atlas Shrugged », philosophically the most challenging best seller of its time. Her first novel, « We the living », was published in 1936. With the publication of « The Fountainhead » in 1943 she achieved a spectacular and enduring success. Miss Rand’s unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are set forth in three nonfiction books : « For the New Intellectual », « The virtue of Selfishness », and « Capitalism : the unknow ideal ». Her Broadway success, « Night of January 16TH », and the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, « The Romantic Manifesto », are also available in Signet editions.
Résumé du livre
He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world he dared to love the woman of this choice. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization he had the courage to seek after knowledge. But these were not the crimes for wich he would be killed. He was marked for death because he had committed the unpardonable sin : He had stood forth from the mindless human herd. He was a man alone.
« Anthem » is the beautiful, thought-provoking novel that depicts the horror which can happen to mankind if current social trends are projected into the future.
