“We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (Rand 19). How can an individual be a hero in a collectivist society? In The Anthem, a novella by Ayn Rand, the protagonist, Equality 7-2521 is portrayed as an archetypal epic hero. Equality 7-2521 exhibits the characteristics of an epic hero because he is capable of great deeds, he has a nemesis, and he experiences an event that leads to a quest.
Throughout history, individuals have shown a trend in escaping situations in which they were in captivity. Similarly, this trend hold true in literature, as well. Alice Walker’s The Color Purple exemplifies this idea, as her protagonist, Celie, escapes from an abusive relationship by the end of the novel. Furthermore, Ayn Rand’s Anthem conveys the same message, for the main character of the novel, Equality 7-2521, eventually leaves the oppressive society in which he grew up.
This essay will be discussing whether or not the character Equality 7-2521’s assessment of his sins towards throughout of the book he’s from, Anthem. His assessment (that he doesn’t care about his sin, as it was decided a sin by a government he sees as immoral and corrupt) is in my opinion, correct. This thought stems mainly from the fact he documented his thoughts throughout the book, and the documents could potentially inspire other people to do the same thing he did, which Equality would probably like. At the beginning of Anthem, Equality feels ashamed with many actions of his, specifically calling many of them evil, sinful, or a “transgression”.
