  • Kundera is a man of the Enlightenment, and is not loath to champion reason over emotion, pointing out, as he has frequently done in his essays as well as his fiction, that many of the worst disasters mankind has suffered were spawned by those who attended most passionately to the dictates of the heart.

Our Thoughts

Kundera simultaneously portrays the intimate and the profound. This is a beautiful book.
