Description

Ayn Rand's classic tale of a dystopian future of the great "We"--a world that deprives individuals of a name or independence--that anticipates her later masterpieces, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.

They existed only to serve the state. They were conceived in controlled Palaces of Mating. They died in the Home of the Useless. From cradle to grave, the crowd was one--the great WE.

In all that was left of humanity there was only one man who dared to think, seek, and love. He lived in the dark ages of the future. In a loveless world, he dared to love the woman of his choice. In an age that had lost all trace of science and civilization, he had the courage to seek and find knowledge. But these were not the crimes for which he would be hunted. 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. He had rediscovered the lost and holy word--I.

"I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals, and I loathe humanity, for its failure to live up to these possibilities."--Ayn Rand

“Anthem” by Ayn Rand is published in 1938 for the first time and then a revised edition in 1946 after the success of The Fountainhead. Basically the book explores the author’s imagination for the future of mankind There is no individualism. The story is written as a diary of a young man named Equality 7-2521 who lives in future. There are no words like I or mine. Everyone is brothers and working together in a groups. and their life is dictated by councils. He is curious and want to find individualism. But this leads to many complications in his life. He is joined there by his love, a girl called Liberty 5-3000. In fact, his life is under danger but they make new research and rediscover the lost language. They rename as Prometheus and Gaea. They discover a world with individual freedom. This is totally a new concept that Rand introduced. The writing is brilliant and easy to understand. The description of the society and the people is awesome. When all work together in one and no individualism, this appears good sometimes and sometimes bad. What I liked most about the story was, instead of using words such as I, me, him, her, or my, everyone used words such as, We, ours, them they. We may have this type of world in future where people will live their life according to the councils or society. This book has a very powerful message that make you think about your society and government. A definite read…….
