7. Anthem is a heroic and inspiring story about the triumph of the individual’s independent spirit. Even though Equality appears to be outnumbered at this point in the story, it is a story of liberation and hope—not of despair. Discuss if you agree or disagree with this assertion of the story so far. Provide textual support (paraphrase/summaries are fine but quotes are better!) to back up your literary analysis. 8. Aside from very rare exceptions (Equality, the Saint at the Pyre), there is literally no opposition to the leaders in this society. Why is this? What ideas must these men have accepted to live a life of obedience, drudgery and fear? As has been much of our discussion this year, have we accepted to live a life of obedience, drudgery and fear? 9. Anthem ’s theme is, in Ayn Rand’s own words, “the meaning of man’s ego.” Explain the ways in which the characters and plot in Anthem illustrate this theme. Refer back to the definition of ego to ensure accuracy in this analysis.

10. To fully control a man, dictators must not only enslave his body, but also destroy his mind. Discuss how the leaders in Anthem seek to accomplish this tyrannical end and how Equality directly tries to rebel against this idea.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
