Ayn Rand’s dystopian novella Anthem is set in a primitive Dark Age in which scientific knowledge and technological progress are nonexistent — a repressive, regimented society, in which every aspect of life is controlled by totalitarian leaders. What is the significance of these features of the world of Anthem? Explore the world that Rand projected as the backdrop for her story of a society so dominated by collectivism that it no longer has the word “I.”

Spoiler alert: This lesson assumes that students have read Anthem.
