The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 4, Chapter 13 Summary

  • It is Tereza's turn. She refuses to wear the blindfold because she is too scared to enter death's antechamber.
  • One of the men walks her over to a tree. Finally, she blurts out, "But it wasn't my choice" (4.13.6).
  • The men stop and tell her that, if this is true, then they do not have the right to kill her.
  • Tereza turns toward the tree and bursts into tears.
