È un capolavoro di pensiero liberale nascosto in un libricino. Dovrebbe essere letto in tutte le scuole. Meglio di 1984 perché più idiretto.

If you haven't heard about Ayn Rand, the author of "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead", nor read any of her works, start with this tiny short novel. The story is set in an unprecised future, in which society is shred among cities ruled by communist-like governments: every form of egoism is strictly forbidden and free will is banished as well. The protagonist (Equality 7- 2521) writes a diary about his life and the events that led him to flee from the city in search of freedom. Even though the novel is just a prelude to Atlas Shrugged, it conveys the ideas that made Ayn Rand an important liberal philosopher and it has the great advantage of concision. Start with it, then I bet you will consider reading Atlas Shrugged too.

5.0 su 5 stelle Powerful...Provocative...Prescient... 15 luglio 2016
Di Dr. Ellen K. Rudolph - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is vintage Ayn Rand -- a powerful, imaginative, futuristic tale of the driving force of EGO in the Self, and the lack of it. The story personifies the devastating impact of collectivism taken to Socialistic extremes; when nameless beings and all-powerful collectives occupy and control what was once a free state where individual liberty reigned.
But there is hope, for the intense [We-ness] that suffocates, it suffocates itself, too, in the end. And so long as there is still the germ of an "I" to sprout -- to question, to reason, to shatter and then reveal the awful truth of collectivism -- liberty will again shine brightly.

Rand sketches the mechanistic extreme of we-ness in order for us to grasp it fully, and I thank her for that.

This is a fabulous book for monthly book clubs to explore. It will surely provoke intense dialogue but perhaps also confusion for those heretofore clueless about the true meaning liberty vs. collectivism. There has never been a better time to sort out this vital interface.

5.0 su 5 stelle He believes in a better world. One where it is not a crime ... 29 dicembre 2016
Di Eric W. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In this dystopian society, one man stands alone. He believes in a better world. One where it is not a crime to love a woman. One where stating your idea is not a death sentence. In the dark world he lives in he is looking for a way to make it light again.
The short novella, Anthem by Ayn Rand was published in 1938. Ayn submitted it two an American and an English publishing firm, but in the end the publishing firm Cassell located in England published the book. This book contains 52 pages. This book follows the life of Equality 7-2521 as he tries to survive in the dystopian society he was born into.
Equality 7-2521 is the main character of the book. He has two friends, Union 5-3992 and International 4-8818. They found an entrance to an old tunnel in their assigned work area. Equality 7-2521 is a street sweeper. He is a very intelligent man, however he learned things too quickly and asked too many questions. As a result, the Council of Vocations assigned him the job of street cleaner as a punishment for his intelligence. With this newly discovered tunnel, he started preforming scientific experiments. He stole some paper and started writing his findings in a journal. While cleaning the streets Equality 7-2521 meets a woman with the name, Liberty 5-3000. The two discover that they love each other, however in their society you do not love each other, man and woman cannot even talk to each other. In his experiments Equality 7-2521 rediscovers electricity. He decides to take his finding to the World Council of Scholars, in the hope they will be impressed and amazed by his discovery. However, this is not the case. They sentence him to death. Before they could catch him, he runs into the Uncharted Forest, where he is joined by Liberty 5-3000. They live their lives together in the forest and discover what they can about life before their dystopian society.
Throughout most of the people refer to themselves as “we” instead of “I.” In this society they removed the words “I,” and “You.” They believed that individuality was a sign of ego. The fact that the society, thought referring to yourself with “I” would get rid of a person’s individuality is absurd. A person’ individuality comes from the way a person acts. For example in the book, Equality 7-2521 expressed his individuality through his scientific experiments. Yes, he could not state that he, himself accomplished his experiments. But he still did it himself. It was not a group of people doing these experiments. Therefore, he was still expressing his individuality. The society did not successfully take away a person’s individuality, just by removing the words, “I” and “You.” Equality 7-2521 still found a way to express himself in his own way.
This book was an enjoyable read. I liked the dystopian society. I would recommend this book to young adults. I liked that this dystopian society took a way the words “I” and “You.” While they thought that this would take away a person’s individuality it did not. I liked that the viewpoints switched from First Person to Third Person throughout the story. It provided a unique perspective. Also, I liked that the focused of the story stayed on Equality 7-2521. Yes, he feel in love with a woman, but it did not become a love story. The book stayed focused on the dystopian society and the issues that Equality 7-2521 found wrong in the society.

5.0 su 5 stelle Inexpensive, but did not meet my daughter's need 21 gennaio 2017
Di Beth and Jean - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Large format. Basic quality. Good value, but my daughter can't use it because there isn't enough blank space on each page and in between chapters for making annotations, which is a class requirement. I had to return this version and bought another version on Amazon. Good customer service.

Review for the other version we bought on amazon: I think that amazon's system does not allow a separate review for each item ASIN/SKU. I am not intetested in doing a literary review on this book, but merely a product review. This slighly more expensive version is more suitable for making annotations due to having more pages (42), which is a must have for the class my daughter is taking

5.0 su 5 stelle Anthem is an old favorite and a Modern Classic 20 maggio 2016
Di Ellen Lewit - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Anthem is a good story with unusual characters, plot and setting. It is also an excellent introduction to the thought of philosopher novelist Ayn Rand and the ideas of liberty in general.

It is a story that begins in a captive culture without even the hint of individuality let alone of individual liberty. One man who does not even know he is a single human being because the words for it have been erased from his society, slowly discovers that he has a mind, he can learn, he can love, and he can live as something other than a cog in a mindless machinelike society. He discovers what it is to be a man. And the reader discovers the importance of having the words to describe and express individuality.

This is a short interesting novella with profound implications. If you have not read it, it will be fun to read and worth the short time it takes to read. You may come to love it as some of us do and revisit it happily from time to time.

Newer editions also include a copy of the older edition as it was first published in England in 1937 with editing markup for the American publication in 1946. For those interested in editing, it is a fascinating example of how to change the mood and tone of a story while leaving the plot and message intact.

5.0 su 5 stelle Read Ayn Rand before you dismiss her on the basis of the negative opinions of others 4 novembre 2016
Di kathryn stewart-mcdonald - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
People who do not like Ayn Rand's works have never read her books. She is an excellent writer, all of her books were translated into many foreign languages. People who do not like Ayn Rand are those who are made uncomfortable by her portraits of characters. She describes the rabble behind the Russian Revolution with the primary purpose of their political support of communism being revenge on those who had more money by raiding their homes and occupying the estates . She examines the hypocrisy of their leadership as the movement of the great unwashed changed the world after the Russian Revolution. It reminds me of Appalachia today and the drug cultures power corrupting the political system. In Russia the precursors were also purely economic. In this work she extolls individuality and self determination.
