The Fountainhead Part 4, Chapter 14

By Ayn Rand

Part 4, Chapter 14

  • Toohey and Keating have a confrontation, and Keating realizes how evil Toohey is...but also how dependent he is on Toohey.
  • It's a pretty miserable moment for Keating.
  • Toohey twirls his mustache and laughs evilly. Metaphorically speaking, of course.
  • Toohey also wants Keating to confess that Roark actually designed the building to make Roark look worse for his trial.
  • Keating is so downtrodden now that he agrees.
