In this limited, 4-episode series, teachers from the Ayn Rand Institute will lead discussions on Ayn Rand's Anthem
, covering background material on Rand and the book; an overview of the story; an analysis of the characters, themes and plot; comparisons to other works; and how the novel relates to the era in which it was written and to today. (Note: A similar series is available on The Fountainhead
This series is aimed at high school students but open to all, and would be especially beneficial to those entering the Anthem essay contest
. Discussions take place on the Zoom webinar platform. To protect student privacy, attendees are only able to see and communicate with the teachers, not with each other.
