A person like Howard Roark cannot exist in today's world. Roark is the ultimate perfectionist. He does not want fame or money or any other material thing. The satisfaction he gets from creating perfection is all he longs for. I think that Ayn Rand did not create this character as someone true to life. Roark was deliberately created by Rand as an extension of the main theme of the book- which is the human spirit- which cannot be kept bound.
