One of his most famous works is The Source, which tells the story of Howard Roark, a young man who refuses to follow the standards of a society that does not understand his independent way of thinking and acting. Roark does not give up his values and away college, he ends up paying a high price that involves unemployment, poverty and public humiliation. The plot brings up an idea that the author defended throughout her career: that man is born free and can do whatever he wants.
