The Romantic Manifesto is a rich and philosophically penetrating book. It is, Rand states in her introduction, a "declaration of my personal objectives or motives" as an artist and "of the theoretical grounds that entitle me to these objectives and motives." We explore some of the insights into Objectivism we get from her manifesto and some lessons to take—or not to take—from the book to increase one's enjoyment of art and of life.
