  • Now that you have finished the book, I want you to start thinking about how you might visually represent some of the ideas and words represented in the novel. In addition, you will analyze the quote.



Part 1 (Image Piece)


  1. You will choose 1 quote from Anthem and create your own illustration demonstrating what the quote means/represents.




  1. You will do this visually by creating an original graphic (drawing, painting, collage, etc.) It must be on unlined paper.

  1. Your analysis will be comprised of a minimum of 3 organized and fluent paragraphs.




  1. The following is what you will discuss in your analysis write-up:

  • Analyze the quote, telling me what it means in relation to the novel, including how it relates to the major themes/ideas present in Anthem.

  • Explain how your visual image represents the quote

  • What personal connections or allusions can you make to anything in life or another novel




  1. The written requirements for the paragraphs are:

  • Each paragraph must be 6-8 sentences long. (You must vary your sentence structure.)

  1. We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever.” (Page 19)




  1. “It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them.” (Page 21)




  1. “There is fear hanging in the air of the sleeping halls, and in the air of the streets. Fear walks through the City, fear without name, without shape. All men feel it and none dare to speak.” (Page 46)




  1. “There is no crime punished by death in this world, save this one crime of speaking the Unspeakable Word.” (Page 49)




  1. “The secrets of this earth are not for all men to see, but only for those who will seek them.” (Page 52)




  1. “We can give our brothers a new light, cleaner and brighter than any they have ever known. The power of the sky can be made to do men’s bidding. There is no limits to its secrets and its might, and it can be made to grant us anything if we but choose to ask.” (Page 60)




  1. “I am. I think. I will.” (Page 94)




  1. “I am not a tool for their use. I am not a servant of their needs. I am not a bandage for their wounds. I am not a sacrifice on their altars.” (Page 95)




  1. “I am done with the monster of “We,” the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame.” (Page 97)




  1. “He took the light of the gods and he brought it to men, and he taught men to be gods. And he suffered for his deed as all bearers of light must suffer. His name was Prometheus.” (Page 99)




  1. “The sacred word: EGO.” (Page 105)
