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?
