Ayn Rand SCREEN GUIDE FOR AMERICANS The influence of Communists in Hollywood is due, not to their own power, but to the unthinking carelessness of those who profess to oppose them. Red propaganda has been put over in some films produced by innocent men, often by loyal Americans who deplore the spread of Communism throughout the world and wonder why it is spreading. If you wish to protect your pictures from being used for Communistic purposes, the first thing to do is to drop the delusion that ...

The Early Ayn Rand Preface to the Revised Edition This revision adds two short stories to the collection, thereby placing all six short stories by Ayn Rand in one volume. The previously unpublished story, The Night King, has been included, as well as the story The Simplest Thing in the World, reprinted from The Romantic Manifesto. The first of these, most likely written in 1926, seems to be her first attempt at fiction in English. The second, written in 1940, demonstrates the command of the ...

Ayn Rand We the Living Foreword I HAD NOT REREAD THIS NOVEL AS a whole, since the time of its first publication in 1936, until a few months ago. I had not expected to be as proud of it as I am. Too many writers declare that they never succeed in expressing fully what they wished to express and that their work is only some sort of approximation. It is a viewpoint for which I have never had any sympathy and which I consider excusable only when it is voiced by beginners, since no one is born with ...

Ayn Rand Night of January 16th Introduction If I were to classify Night of January 16th in conventional literary terms, I would say that it represents, not Romantic Realism, but Romantic Symbolism. For those acquainted with Objectivist aesthetics, I can name a more precise classification: Night of January 16th is not a philosophical, but a sense-of-life play. A sense of life is a preconceptual equivalent of metaphysics, an emotional, subconsciously integrated appraisal of mans relationship to ...

AYN RAND THE FOUNTAINHEAD To Frank OConnor Introduction to the Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition Many people have asked me how I feel about the fact that The Fountainhead has been in print for twenty-five years. I cannot say that I feel anything in particular, except a kind of quiet satisfaction. In this respect, my attitude toward my writing is best expressed by a statement of Victor Hugo: If a writer wrote merely for his time, I would have to break my pen and throw it away. Certain writers, of ...

The bum had said it simply, without expression. But from the sunset far at the end of the street, yellow glints caught his eyes, and the eyes looked straight at Eddie Willers, mocking and stillas if the question had been addressed to the causeless uneasiness within him. Why did you say that asked Eddie Willers, his voice tense. The bum ...
