Prese letterarie del nostro tempo un «romanzo in forma di variazioni» Cambiano totalmente i personaggi e le situazioni in ciascuna delle sette parti in cui come d’obbligo in Kundera il libro si divide Ciascuna è autosufficiente – e tutte si susseguono «come le diverse tappe di un viaggio che ci conduce all’interno di un tema all’interno di u. Safe to say Kundera isn t the favourite writer of many feminists His male characters tend to be hedonistic womanisers who have a tendency to exonerate their egotistic behaviour by positing sexual dichotomies and generalisations This kind of thing For he was aware of the great secret of life Women don t look for handsome men Women look for men who have had beautiful women Having an ugly mistress is therefore a fatal mistake Now this isn t by any stretch of the imagination a great secret of life There s some truth in it but not enough no matter how much irony you lace it with to make it some kind of code by which to live He also sometimes has his male characters fantasise about rape Harvey Weinstein probably wouldn t have too many problems identifying with a Kundera lead male character And Kundera returns to this male so often in his fiction that you sense he might be a little vain about his own sexual exploits Frankly it can get irritating Roland Barthes urged readers to separate a literary work from its creator in order to liberate the text from interpretive tyranny DH Lawrence said trust the tale not the teller But ironically there was an awful lot of the teller in Lawrence s tales It isn t always easy not to read swathes of autobiography into a writer s work especially when as Kundera and Lawrence do they almost obsessively return to the same characters and themes over and over again At one point in the novel Kundera tells us love is continual interrogation I don t know of a better definition of love I m not sure many people would agree More likely love is a continual turning of the other cheek Interrogation comes only at times of crisis But again it compels us to form an idea of the man Kundera is He s a man always looking for the exit But Kundera is aware of this conundrum and makes a point now and again of making an appearance as the author sometimes disagreeing with something one of his characters thinks or says In this way he turns ideas and actions into uestions Kundera isn t interested in moral or any other kind of certainties He s continually crossing borders both physically and figuratively in his novels Exploring those crude common delineating lines that provide a sham sense of identity So when he has a character fantasise about rape he s not giving a Harvey Weinstein a leg up he s not deploying some crass moral wall chart as commercial fiction does by which we are to evaluate his characters he s plumbing the wellsprings of the human condition and compelling us to ask difficult uestions Basically to my mind it s crass and lazy to dismiss him as a misogynist The novel itself takes a while to get going but the final stretch is fabulous In his prime his novels always have an elouent purity of expression and seem effortless as if they grew organically from a seed Somewhere between 4 and 5 stars As a footnote I started watching the Dustin Hoffman film Little Big Man the other night Early on a teenage white girl is brought into a Cheyenne camp and is worried she s going to be raped It s uickly made obvious she harbours a desire to be raped and is disappointed she isn t All done to get a pornographic giggle from the audience while simultaneously showing us in the most vulgar patronising form imaginable that Cheyenne men aren t animals At that point I turned the thing off That s what I call offensive How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay (Inadvertently), or So They Both Claim rape Harvey Weinstein probably wouldn t have too many problems identifying with a Kundera lead male character And Kundera

N pensiero all’interno di una sola e unica situazione la cui comprensione per me si perde nell’immensità» Su tutto un gesto si mostra con peculiare insistenza il tentativo di sottrarsi alla cancellazione di ciò che è avvenuto Come dice un personaggio del romanzo «la lotta dell’uomo contro il potere è la lotta della memoria contro l’oblio». A few years ago I was simply blown away by my first encounter with Milan Kundera s work That was the brilliantly inventive Immortality but I never got to follow it up with anything else until now This novel if one can call it that is a collection of seven vignettes about characters in Communist Europe during the era of Russian occupation Kundera embrace politics sex philosophy and history with a seen it all cynicism that nevertheless manages to be fascinating and even uplifting And one thing that struck me again was that even though this can be pigeonholed as intellectual literature it was addictive and fun sexy and cool easy to read and made me feel brighter switched on and alive by the time the closing pages came aboutThe unity to the work is provided by the recurring themes of memory the pains of laughter and the mutual deceptions of human relationships with sex and a woman s rump as he calls it never being too far from Kundera s mind throughout The vignettes are also interspersed with long philosophical passages making Kundera feel like an older wiser writer than most of his contemporaries The characters that crop up are laconic but vivid and generally caught in a psychological trap Even when they in his world seem on the verge of turning into a symbolic personae Kundera invariably intervenes before they become too abstract and immerses them into a crude and brutal reality Kundera says in the novel of The Book of Laughter and Forgetting that it is a novel about Tamina and whenever Tamina is absent it is a novel for Tamina He says this in which he himself appears and invents Tamina Modern satirical fantasy of which this is an exceptionally lively and thoughtful example gives everyone the same fictional status himself his characters historical figures and even angels Part of the game is to try to tell them apart and sort out illusion from reality He conveys a liking for put upon but dogged and resilient human beings Kundera himself has an attractive presence in the book reminding us of the nature of fantasy by taking responsibility for it in his role as novelist but also bringing himself before us in real life as an individual living under Communism in Czechoslovakia and in exile in France Fantasy and human reality are never far apart in the book but they have strange conjunctions And then there are the sex scenes which I generally find lacklustre in literature were highly erotic here and very natural but with moments complicated by double meanings so that when Tamina thinks of sex as a joy of angelic simplicity one is to understand from a sense carried by the word angel in the book that this isn t good but bad Kundera who also has a serious use for words in their straight sense chooses to use angel in an unusual sense and especially enjoys using laughter in two entirely different senses There are indeed for example differences between the right and the wrong moments to laugh or between good and bad or between a meaning and its opposite Kundera is really in no doubt at all He only makes the point that mankind gets confused about these things and never so than in his country in his time With the energetic fantasy and the apparently odd conjunctions of his book he both represents this confusion and looks for an easy way out of it He also finds a lot of it exceedingly funny and he does conveys this Humour is his most engaging trait but is also used as one of his weapons It is what he deploys to ridicule the Communist state and its advocatesVery Early on someone says the struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting This is one of the irreversible truths of the novel Tamina struggles to remember her dead husband Kundera s dying father to recall the use of language The deepest meaning Kundera gives to his political theme is not through satire but by evoking the power of memory So what of Tamina this central character We meet her in only two stories but they are uite clear crisp and direct ones Tamina is that lovely thing a centre of silence in an otherwise busy novel How we see her first is as a silent barmaid in a caf somewhere abroad among people who try to chat up barmaids or are busy writing novels or discussing their heightened orgasms of all things This part of the novel is a simple one about letters and diaries left behind in Czechoslovakia which she wants and fails to get out of the country We meet her again on an island where children indulge her with polymorphous sex play that feels like a long awaited reward but it s not what she wants because she s still thinking of her husband and of real love The children go on to torture her uite playfully because she does not belong to their world and when she tries to escape by swimming off the island they watch over her drowning This is obviously a nod to totalitarian and conform but as a fable what s interesting in fact is Kundera speaking in his own voice about his father music and language as he does in the intervals of this storyOverall I didn t think this hit the heights of Immortality but it was still a thoroughly enticing read and what s great when it comes to Kundera s work is that I have only just scratched the surface Hopefully good times with MK lie ahead The Fatima Century romanzo «la lotta dell’uomo contro il potere è la lotta della memoria contro
