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

This centennial edition of Anthem, celebrating the controversial and enduring legacy of its author, features an introduction by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, which includes excerpts from documents by Ayn Rand - letters, interviews, and journal notes in which she discusses Anthem.  This volume also includes a complete reproduction of the original British edition with Ayn Rand's handwritten editorial changes and a Reader's Guide to her writings and philosophy.

Born February 2, 1905, AYN RAND published her first novel, We the Living, in 1936.  Anthem followed in 1938.  It was with the publication of The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957) that she achieved her spectacular success.  Ms. Rand's unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience.  The fundamentals of her philosophy are put forth in three non-fiction books, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, The Virtue of Selfishness, and Capitolism: The Unknown Ideal.  They are all available in Signet editions, as is the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, The Romantic Manifesto.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
