The Fountainhead is the second novel written by Ayn Rand. It was first published in 1943, and was her first work to receive significant attention and success. It tells the story of young architect Howard Roark, an "inovator who battles against a tradition-worshipping society." [1] It was also her first work to introduce her philosophy Objectivism, though it would be expanded upon more in her susequent novel Atlas Shrugged.
