Hodnocení
Her first major literary success, Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead is an exalted view of her Objectivist philosophy, portraying a visionary artist struggling against the dull, conformist dogma of his peers; a book of ambition, power, gold and love, published in Penguin Modern ClassicsArchitect Howard Roark is as unyielding as the granite he blasts to build with Defying the conventions of the world around him, he embraces a battle over two decades against a double-dealing crew of rivals who will stop at nothing to bring him down These include, perhaps most troublesome of all, the ambitious Dominique Francon, who may just prove to be Roarke's equal This epic story of money, power and a man's struggle to succeed on his own terms is a paean to individualism and humanity's creative potential First published in 1943, The Fountainhead introduced millions to Rand's philosophy of Objectivism: an uncompromising defence of self-interest as the engine of progress, and a jubilant celebration of man's creative potentialAyn Rand (1905-1982), born Alisa Rosenbaum in St Petersburg, Russia, emigrated to America with her family in January 1926, never to return to her native land Her novel The Fountainhead was published in 1943 and eventually became a bestseller Still occasionally working as a screenwriter, Rand moved to New York City in 1951 and published Atlas Shrugged in 1957 Her novels espoused what came to be called Objectivism, a philosophy that champions capitalism and the pre-eminence of the individual If you enjoued The Fountainhead, you might like Rand's Atlas Shrugged, also available in Penguin Modern Classics'In The Fountainhead power, greed, life's grandeur flow hot and red in thrilling descriptions'London Review of Books'Ayn Rand is a writer of great power she writes brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly' The New York Times
