Loved oneWith stunning artfulness in expanding and playing variations on the meaningful moment Milan Kundera has made this situation and the vague sense of panic it inspires the very fabric of his new novel Here brevity goes hand in hand with intensity and a moment of bewilderment marks the start of a labyrinthine journey during which the reader repeatedly c. This small gripping novel is the story of two lovers Jean Marc and Chantal It moves from one to the other following assumptions emotions beliefs and ideas some shared but mostly held in secret It s about being seen and about how we see each other Identity is not fixed but is drawn from the mirrors around us One of the messages of this novel is that in order to love you need to be certain that you know who the other person is Once you start to doubt your lover s identity love is eroded In this novel when love starts to crumble the lovers encounter their own secret fears For Chantal this means being naked and for Jean Marc it means becoming a beggar The desperation of their own fears drive them back to the safety of their relationshipOne thread of the story concerns Jean Marc and his friend F who is nameless because he is rejected as a friend Jean Marc does not trust F any and withholds recognition of their shared past Throughout the book every trembling inner movement is echoed by some outer event even if only a passing glance or a uick conversation This gives the novel a sure rhythm

L'Identité

Rosses the border between the real and the unreal between what occurs in the world outside and what the mind creates in its solitudeOf all contemporary writers only Kundera can transform such a hidden and disconcerting perception into the material for a novel one of his finest most painful and most enlightening Which surprisingly turns out to be a love story. Umm so where to start with this one This was my first reading by Kundera of course it wouldn t be the last but this book was just I don t knowIt was weird I had the feeling sometimes that I was reading L cume des jours by Boris Vian there were so many resemblances with regard to the abnormality and the absurd I liked how Kundera tried to draw an image of the nowadays relationships with all the contradictions the conflicts the toxicity and all the dissatisfaction of couplesIt was weird reading this left me in a weird state of mind especially at the very last page And it was definitely so gripping I felt all along that I was getting nothing from it but at the same time I didn t want to put it down I still wanted to keep reading

Milan Kundera ↠ 4 Summary

Milan Kundera's Identitynbsp translated from the French by Linda AsherThere are situations in which we fail for a moment to recognize the person we are with in which the identity of the other is erased while we simultaneously doubt our own That also happens with couples indeed above all with couples because lovers fear than anything else losing sight of the. Whenever I m at a loss for what to read next and don t want to take any risks I reread either Vonnegut Murakami or Kundera I ve probably read this book five times but I love him so I don t care You know maybe it s that old problem of how sometimes with really distinctive authors all their works sort of blur together retroactively but wow Only the first like twenty pages seemed familiar to me even though I am sure I ve read this several times before The whole last third where everything gets all dreamy weird and cerebral and symbolic you know during the view spoiler orgy hide spoiler

    To these uestions he has no answerMilan Kundera is a philosopher in the garb of novelist; but a philosopher of life lived dreamed and yearned for; a philosopher who will not deal in abstract metaphysics and grand scheme of ideas that in the last analysis and against the banality of the real world bears little of its weight

    Kundera's second novel to be written in French was a bit of let down for me It felt nothing like the Kundera I've known from previous books He was trying way to hard here to be French through and through and even though Identity was written in the mid 90s it felt like a script for a nouvelle vague movie of the 50s or 60s It is als

    A great novelist is like a gypsy fortune teller one whose wisdom and prophecies and rich tales are enhanced by the palpable rasp of the voice and the heat of her garlic breath in your face In this book Kundera is like one of those mechanical gypsy automatons behind glass that dispenses wisdom on pre written slips of paper from the hand of a hollow machineIn Identity Kundera offers much food for thought on the nature of personal identity; w
