The Fountainhead essay contest.

Select ONE of the following three topics: . Howard Roark refuses a major contract when he most needs it, claiming that his action was "the most selfish thing you've ever seen a man do." (Part I, Chapter 15) Why does he call his action selfish? And why do other people call it selfless? . Gail Wynand is a brilliant individual who rose out of the slums by means of his own talent and effort. But despite his reverence for man's noblest achievements, his newspaper, The Banner, presents the most lurid and loathsome values. Why does Wynand pander in this manner? And why doesn't Howard Roark? . Choose the scene in The Fountainhead that is most meaningful to you. Analyze that scene in terms of the wider themes in the book.

Essay must be no fewer than 800 and no more than 1,600 words in length and double-spaced. One entry per student, please. Winners, finalists, semifinalists and all other participants will be notified via e-mail and/or by mail by July 27, 2010.
