- Cover Blurb:
In this beautifully written and brilliantly reasoned book, Ayn Rand throws new light on the nature of art and its purpose in human life. Once again Miss Rand eloquently demonstrates her bold originality and her refusal to let popular catchwords and conventional ideas stand between her and the truth as she has discovered it. The Romantic Manifesto takes its place beside The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as one of the most important achievements of our time. (From a Signet paperback printing.)
