9780684869711: The Fountainhead (Scribner Classics)

The Fountainhead is an unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, when first published in 1943 it created a public furor and worldwide interest in its brilliant author, Ayn Rand. On the surface, it is a story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers then rejects the seductive power of fame and money, finding that creative genius must ultimately triumph. This novel also addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of these themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give The Fountainhead its enduring influence. Indeed, it is as relevant today as it was when written.

Review:

The Fountainhead has become an enduring piece of literature, more popular now than when published in 1943. On the surface, it is a story of one man, Howard Roark, and his struggles as an architect in the face of a successful rival, Peter Keating, and a newspaper columnist, Ellsworth Toohey. But the book addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of those themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give this book its enduring influence.
