Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The Fountainhead has become an enduring piece of literature, more popular now than when published in 1943. On the surface, it is a story of one man, Howard Roark, and his struggles as an architect in the face of a successful rival, Peter Keating, and a newspaper columnist, Ellsworth Toohey. But the book addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of those themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give this book its enduring influence.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Beginning of a Beautiful relationship 19. September 2000
Von D. Dohoda
Format:Taschenbuch
Ahh, the Fountainhead. I gave it 4 stars because it is not quite as good as Atlas Shrugged.
But then again, if you are reading this you probably haven't read that book either.
Look no further for a book about a man who does not know the meaning of the word "compromise", Howard Roark. Some people tend to take everything very literally (at least judging by other reviews). Howard Roark is a man who will not let his ideals be torn asunder by his coworkers, so-called friends, and associates. Neither will the media take him down. Is is an idyllic tale of a man who did something we all want to do: chase his dream.
If there's something wrong with that, then I suppose we are all in some real trouble and this book isn't going to help!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A challenging book that will make you think. 7. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
As time passes I see myself disagree with the philosophy of Ayn Rand more and more, yet her work has challenged me to think and question my own philosphy of life. I am not a hard core objectivist and I am actually a little amazed at how far hard-core objectivist go especial in their challenge of modern physics and quantum mechanics. But this book is a great book is worth examination and questioning.
The Fountainheads characters are really amazing and interesting.
Howard Roark the protagonist is a talented college drop out who struggles to become an architect. He refuses to design anything other than to his own design and will not be influenced by the whims of cleints or fads in design. His buildings are prefect in the book and Roark will pay out of his own pocket to fix his mistake in design. And he would rather see a building of his design destroyed than corrupted. Roark is driven by solving problems of design not by fame or fortune.
He is contrasted by Peter Keating who unlike Roark always caves in to be popular opinon by catering to the whims of clients and critics. While Roark is almost uneffected by people, Keating is totally dependent on others for his ideas, dreams and sense of self.
Dominique Frankon is Roarks lover who wants to see him destroyed and tries to destroy him herself. For she is tortured by the fact that everone gives in and compromises themselves. She tries to destroy Roark because see believes that he can not hold out forever against the world and she would rather see him destroyed than live a subservient life.
Gail Wylan is Roarks best friend. Wylan is a newspaper owner who is a tyrant over his empire. He tries at first to control Roark and fails which is what starts there friendship.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE FOUNTAINHEAD - Lovers and Legend 30. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is almost un-critiqueable due to its uniqueness and the awe with which it is held by the late Miss Rand's more devoted followers. But I'll try! The plot spans the years 1922 to about 1938 and traces the career arc of two rival architects, Howard Roark and Peter Keating. Roark's approach to design and function in architecture is roughly based on Frank Lloyd Wright's; Keating is a meretricious copyist incapable of an original idea whose main function seems to be to look good in a tuxedo while entertaining clients. Roark's fatal flaw is that he accepts no client changes to his architectural plans - none whatsoever, not even the most conservative Greek column on the ground floor of a bank building. Of Roark and Keating, whom do you think has the more successful career? By the late-1920s Keating has become the toast of Manhattan while Roark is reduced to poverty. Yet it is Roark to whom Keating slinks when he has trouble designing an ultramodern skyscraper for a prestigious competition. Roark is allegedly the egomaniacal one, yet he helps Keating without asking for recognition or payment of any kind.
Things get even more perverse on the love front. Not to give too much of the plot away, but a sensous, emotionally distant woman who is just Roark's type takes up with exactly the kind of men who hurt Roark the most. It's utterly appalling and yet, in Rand's equation, somehow convincingly human, which makes it all the more appalling. The path to heroism in an Ayn Rand novel is never easy.
There's a lot more going on, including a sleazy gazillionaire publisher with the seeds of greatness, an urbane man of letters who should have been murdered in the crib, and a public housing project that didn't survive to see the light of day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful book; but hints at dogmatism to come 6. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I have not done a comparison of other books rated at this site, but a total of 195 customer comments thus far appears to indicate, at the very least, that this enduring work has had much influence, positive or otherwise. I read the book many years ago, and it impacted me personally in both positive and negative ways. All in all, I cannot say I'm worse off on account of it, but who can really say?
From a literary perspective, you will find few books written with more eloquence or passion than this one. Ms. Rand was, in my view, a very talented woman, perhaps a flawed genius . . . The plot is intricate, fascinating and tightly woven. As a lawyer, I recall the courtroom scenes as being somewhat naive and "Hollywood", but most people are not attorneys, so one can live with that minor discrepancy.
Ms. Rand eventually became dogmatic, as did her philosophy and later novel; seeds or hints of this can be seen in the Foutainhead. The book is very appealing to the young--with its passionate idealism and black and white view of things; therein lies a material danger that young minds can be drawn in to the dogmatism and "judgment"-- against themselves and others--causing significant psychogical harm. By the same token, if not turned into a cult or inflexible system, if read with an instruction of caution (perhaps from a teacher or parent), the book can give some sense of insight, direction and meaning to the "abyss", the world of an adolescent.
I understand that Ms. Rand and her philosophy became so dogmatic so as to become almost a cult, or, at the very least, a religion. People who disagreed with her were even excommunicated, as though Ms. Rand was the Pope and her detractors were errant followers.
