Anthem takes place in a time where freedom and individual rights have been eliminated. The first two parts were in fact kind of difficult to understand but it is a different method of writing. Since we just started this book, I decided to do risk-take researcher and find out things about the author, Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand grew up in Russia during one of the country’s most devastating, cruel periods. Rand is famous for being unique. Some people ask her, if she is a novelist of a philosopher, her response was quite interesting.
“I am often asked whether I am primarily a novelist or a philosopher. The answer is: both. In a certain sense, every novelist is a philosopher, because one cannot present a picture of human existence without a philosophical framework. . . . In order to define, explain and present my concept of man, I had to become a philosopher in the specific meaning of the term.”
