Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged: A Philosophical and Literary Companion Reviews

    A collection of essays on Rand’s literary masterpiece, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: A Philosophical and Literary Companion is an interesting exploration of Randian philosophy. Unfortunately, all of the authors appear to be die hard Randians and aren’t too critical of Rand or her work; offering universal praise. Still, some intriguing insights and perspectives are presented; including Rand’s cinematic eye, her use of myth, and her economic and philosophic inspirations. Yet several of the essays are overly analytical and aren’t directly related to Atlas Shrugged. While Younkins has done a fair job of collecting an array of diverse articles, the intensity of the Objectivist propaganda makes Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: A Philosophical and Literary Companion a challenging read for the unconverted.
