This lesson is the last of four in which you’ll study the story of Anthem, chapter by chapter, and analyze the character of its hero, Equality 7-2521. You’ll cover the final chapters of the book (8 through 12), in which Equality 7-2521 finds the answers to the questions he has pursued throughout the story, uncovering at last the mystery behind his society’s downfall and finding the key to a future of freedom and progress.

Note: The final three chapters are treated only briefly here and are discussed in more depth in a separate lesson on the themes of Anthem.

Spoiler alert: This lesson assumes that students have read Anthem.
