About the Book

Ayn Rand, a Russian-American author, created the dystopian novella Anthem in 1937. It was initially released in the UK in 1938. The story is set in an undefined time in the future when mankind has gone through another Dark Age. Nowadays, technological development is meticulously planned, and the idea of individuality is gone. Equality 7-2521 is a young guy who rebels by conducting covert scientific research. He hides out in the forest with the girl he loves once his activities are revealed. They intend to create a new civilization based on rediscovering individualism together. The narrative was initially intended to be a play, but Rand later changed her mind and wrote it for a magazine. She sent it to book publishers on the advice of her agency. Cassell initially released the novella in England. Only after Rand's next book, The Fountainhead became a bestseller was it released in the US. For the 1946 US publication, Rand changed the text. Rand looked into possibilities for getting Anthem adapted to various media after its release in the US. She was in talks regarding possible ballet, opera, and film adaptations, but these plans were never carried out.
