Anthem Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



Equality 7-2521 is a man apart. Since the Great Rebirth it has been a crime in his world to think or act as an individual.

Even love is forbidden. Yet, since his childhood in the Home of the Infants, Equality 7-2521 has felt that he is different.

When he is sent by the Council of Vocations to work as a road sweeper, he stumbles upon a link to the old world that gives him the spur to break free.

First published in England in 1938, Ayn Rand's short dystopian novel crystalises the ideas of individualism and competition that would make her name.
