Kundera The Thief

The Unbearable Lightness of Being - Milan Kundera

A work of a different and honest sort of genius. With voice fleeting between third-person character born from the page (as we are constantly reminded) and the writer’s autobiographical musings, the reader is enthralled by a multi-faceted view of the world, its people, and its individual situations that inextricably and cyclicly link themselves to the next. 859 more words

De ondraaglijke lichtheid van het bestaan  van Milan Kundera is natuurlijk een verschrikkelijk boek waarover al heel wat quasifilosofisch geleuter is verschenen. Het boek bevat gewoon te veel onvoldragen intuïties over singulariteit en contingentie die bovendien op dramatische manier worden gepsychologiseerd en platgeslagen door de personages. 828 more words

not a city –
a kvetch in her molars.

I am not a Kundera character
driven by selfish desire… 45 more words
