Anthem

by Ayn Rand  |  Grades 10-12  |   Lexile Level 880

Hailed by The New York Times as "a compelling dystopian look at paranoia from one of the most unique and perceptive writers of our time," this brief, captivating novel offers a cautionary tale.

The story unfolds within a society in which all traces of individualism have been eliminated from every aspect of life--use of the word "I" is a capital offense. The hero, a rebel who discovers that man's greatest moral duty is the pursuit of his own happiness, embodies the values the author embraced in her personal philosophy of objectivism: reason, ethics, volition, and individualism.
