The Fountainhead Part 2, Chapter 14

By Ayn Rand

Part 2, Chapter 14

  • That night, Dominique proposes to Keating, and the two elope.
  • Uh, what?
  • No, it's for real. Keating developed amnesia and forgot his true love Katie, and Dominique decided to take her masochistic tendencies to a whole new level.
  • Dominique goes to Roark that night and tells him she loves him and that she married Keating to punish herself since she refuses to be happy in a world that treats Roark like it does.
  • Whoa. That's sort of romantic...sort of.
  • Roark accepts this (of course) and says he loves her and will wait for her to find her way to him.
