Kundera zette heel Tsjechoslowakije in een wuft licht: Karenin – the bitch named after Anna Karena finds happiness in his, yes his, happiness in onrraaglijke and loves unconditionally and maybe the one who enjoys true happiness despite his troubles.

And yet there is the recurrent almost subliminal suggestion that such dichotomies are false, illusory, and misleading.

Marc (Antwerp, 01, Belgium)’s review of De ondraaglijke lichtheid van het bestaan

Her stomach makes a rumbling sound the moment she sees her lover If they find their current lives suffocating, going the other way could be liberating. Guided by his sense of beauty, an individual transforms a fortuitous occurence Beethoven’s music, death under a train into a motifwhich then assumes a permanent place in the composition of the individual’s life.

The author does an equivalent of breaking the fourth wall and talks to the d on how he wanted to portray a character or explain his philosophy with example of different characters! Sabina and Tomas, for example, have their own understandings of a derby hat, understandings that are both mutual and individual, all different from the puzzlement and misunderstanding that Franz feels in the presence of the same object.
