About the Author
Born February 2, 1905, Ayn Rand published her first novel, We the Living, in 1936. Anthem followed in 1938. It was with the publication of The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957) that she achieved her spectacular success. Rand’s unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are put forth in three nonfiction books, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, The Virtues of Selfishness, and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal. They are all available in Signet editions, as is the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, The Romantic Manifesto.

My only complaint would be her remarks on music; I didn't appreciate a point where she suggested that the minor key was less harmonious than the major key, and must sound dark and ominous. The minor key can create harmonious and even optimistic sounds, and her remark was over-speculation.
In total though, the book provides an excellent foundation for any study of particular forms of art, by bringing it back to man's method of thought.
