Description : Read Now Slowness by Milan Kundera and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. slowness was milan kundera's first novel written in french. disconcerted and enchanted, the reader follows him through a midsummer's night in which two tales of seduction, separated in time by more than two hundred years, interweave and oscillate between the sublime and ridiculous. as kundera's readers would expect, slowness is at the same time a formidable display of existential analysis. slowness (and rapidity), discretion (and exhibitionism) are the principal concepts, and those which are to the reader like vital keys for understanding life in our contemporary world.

Description : Read Now Encounter by Milan Kundera and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. with the same dazzling mix of emotion and idea that characterizes his novels he illuminates the art and artists who remain important to him and whose work helps us better understand the world. an astute and brilliant reader of fiction, kundera applies these same gifts to the reading of francis bacon's paintings, leos janácek's music, the films of federico fellini, as well as to the novels of philip roth, dostoyevsky, and garcía márquez, among others. he also takes up the challenge of restoring to their rightful place the work of major writers like anatole france and curzio malaparte who have fallen into obscurity. milan kundera's signature themes of memory and forgetting, the experience of exile, and his spirited championing of modernist art mark these essays. art, he argues, is what we have to cleave to in the face of evil, against the expression of the darker side of human nature. elegant, startlingly original and provocative, encounter follows kundera's essay collections, the art of the novel, testaments betrayed and the curtain.

Description : Read Now The Unbearable Lightness Of Being by Milan Kundera and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. when the unbearable lightness of being was first published in english, it was hailed as "a work of the boldest mastery, originality, and richness" by critic elizabeth hardwick and named one of the best books of 1984 by the new york times book review. it went on to win the los angeles times book prize for fiction and quickly became an international bestseller. twenty years later, the novel has established itself as a modern classic. to commemorate the anniversary of its first english-language publication, harpercollins is proud to offer a special hardcover edition. a young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing; one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover -- these are the two couples whose story is told in this masterful novel. controlled by day, tereza's jealousy awakens by night, transformed into ineffably sad death-dreams, while tomas, a successful surgeon, alternates loving devotion to the dependent tereza with the ardent pursuit of other women. sabina, an independent, free-spirited artist, lives her life as a series of betrayals -- of parents, husband, country, love itself -- whereas her lover, the intellectual franz, loses all because of his earnest goodness and fidelity. in a world in which lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and by fortuitous events, a world in which everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. hence we feel, says the novelist, "the unbearable lightness of being" -- not only as the consequence of our private acts but also in the public sphere, and the two inevitably intertwine. this magnificent novel encompasses the extremes of comedy and tragedy, and embraces, it seems, all aspects of human existence. it juxtaposes geographically distant places (prague, geneva, paris, thailand, the united states, a forlorn bohemian village); brilliant and playful reflections (on "eternal return," on kitsch, on man and animals -- tomas and tereza have a beloved doe named karenin); and a variety of styles (from the farcical to the elegiac) to take its place as perhaps the major achievement of one of the world's truly great writers.
