Such as, Equality 7-2521 About the Author Ayn Rand
Some readers love her, some readers hate her, but just about everyone can admire Ayn Rand’s tenacity. At the young age of nine, Rand made up her mind to be a fiction writer, and she proceeded to do just that, becoming in the process both a philosopher and a pop-culture icon. Born in Russia, she witnessed the Kerensky and Bolshevik Revolutions before her family moved to Crimea to escape harm. Her early life in communist life probably influenced "Anthem" greatly As we watch the next clip in which the cartoon "Smurfs" is compared to a communist society note the similarities to the society described in "Anthem" It’s better to conform than to be different. A perfect world is one a world in which everyone cooperates. Some knowledge is too dangerous to be revealed to society and should be kept secret. You should do what you are told. Some emotions should not be allowed to be felt or expressed. Think critically about each statement. Use the different signs provided on the handout to indicate whether you agree, disagree, or are uncertain about each topic. Then explain your reasoning. An individual person’s feelings, choices, and needs are more important than everyone else’s. Being an individual is not as important as being a good member of society. We exist to serve society, not our individual interests. If an individual does not believe that the laws of society are ethical or moral, then they have the right to defy (ignore or break) the laws. It is bad to like some people more than others. When we believe something strongly, we should stand up for our belief no matter what the cost. Can you think of any other novels that deal with the idea of dystopias or communism? Let's discuss a few of the main characters of "Anthem" Equality 7-2521 -
A street sweeper, the protagonist of the novella. He believes in individualism and rejects the collectivist society around him. He is vain and self-centered, strong, beautiful, and intelligent. He is deeply curious and desires freedom to explore and think, and he is unafraid of the society of mindless drones around him. The Golden One
A beautiful peasant with whom Equality 7-2521 falls madly in love. The Golden One is proud and vain, strong and bitter. She loves Equality 7-2521 because he is different from most men around her. With him, she grapples with a desire to find the word “I” in order to express her love for him. The Transgressor of the Unspeakable Word
A martyr for the word “I.” The Transgressor of the Unspeakable Word suffers no pain as he is burned alive because he knows the meaning of individualism. International 4-8818
Equality 7-2521’s only friend. International 4-8818 views Equality 7-2521 as a prophet. When he and Equality 7-2521 discover the tunnel in which Equality 7-2521 hides to write his journal and make his discoveries, he is torn between loyalty to his friend and his desire not to break the law. Collective 0-0009
The leader of the World Council of Scholars. Collective 0-0009 is shapeless and cowardly, like all members of the World Council. He fears and hates Equality 7-2521 for breaking the rules because he believes that only those decisions reached by the council can be of value. Let's look at the chapter titles for this text
For each predict what it could be about
