TOPICS:
• “It is a sin to write this.” So begins Anthem. What is the significance of this opening line to the story and to the meaning of the novel? What view of morality does it embody? What is Equality 7-2521’s eventual assessment of his sin and why? Explain.
• Politically, Anthem depicts a collectivist society. What ideas do the rulers appeal to in order to justify their collectivist society? How do its rulers retain their power? What enables Equality 7-2521 to escape his society and envision an alternative?
• Anthem portrays a totalitarian world of the future. in contrast to other such portrayals, the world of Anthem is technologically primitive. What does this imply about the nature of science and technology and the conditions for technological progress, and how do events of the story establish that view?
