Discuss "The Fountainhead"! TUES, JAN 21, 2014 @ 6:30 PM - On the Border

Come relax with friends after a day of productive work.

New members and first-timers are welcome! If you are new to NTOS and are looking for a chance to introduce yourself or find out more about us, this event is perfect for you!  We would be very glad to meet you!


This time, I'd like to discuss "The Fountainhead," focusing on two scenes introducing Dominique's character:

(a) the first meeting between Peter Keating and Dominique Francon, which is in Part One, Chapter 10 (about the 1st half), the scene ending with, "Then he leaned back against the cushions, as if he were tired, as if he had heard nothing of importance, and he kept silent for the rest of the drive. Francon kept silent also."; and

(b) Alvah Scarret's visiting Dominique in her apartment, which is in Part One, Chapter 12 (about the 1st half), the scene ending with, ""Run on home, Alvah," she said. "It's getting late. I'm tired. See you tomorrow." 

What are the essentials of Dominique's character and her thinking about the society of the novel?
