The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being

by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 2, Chapter 16 Summary

  • Teresa's dreams are clearly an accusation against Tomas.
  • Dreams don't just exist for communication, however – they are also beautiful in and of themselves.
  • Tomas laments that Tereza dreams of death so often. She responds that there's nothing she can do about it, though she knows Tomas loves her and that his infidelities are "no great tragedy" (2.16.5).
