Savoring Ayn Rand's "Red Pawn"

Dina Schein Federman

Presented at: OCON 2006

Date: Jun 30, 2006

Ayn Rand's movie scenario "Red Pawn" is arguably the most dramatic of her early works of fiction. This course aims to raise the reader’s enjoyment of "Red Pawn" by analyzing it and to teach the rudiments of literary analysis using this work as the model. Among issues to be discussed: how to determine "Red Pawn's" theme; the essential elements that make this work dramatic; an analysis of the story's characters; how the events, characters and even descriptive details support the theme; how Miss Rand’s technique of writing in tiers applies to this work. By contrasting "Red Pawn" with its nearest literary neighbor, We the Living, Dr. Schein will shed more light on both works.
