After all, the narrator “began to piece together this version of the story” through information given to him by Ethan Frome.

Prometheus writes that he finally recognizes ‘why the best in me has been my sins and my transgressions; and why I had never felt guilt in my sins” in the concluding chapter of Anthem (Rand, 98). Prometheus comes to understand that the reason he has felt no regret for his actions, is because they are what makes him an individual. This meaning that throughout his life he has been degraded because of how he would wonder and constantly ask questions, but this has made him a person with views and genuine curiosity on how the world works.
