The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being


by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 4, Chapter 19 Summary

  • Tereza leaves the bathroom. She wants to hear the engineer call out to her soul in a deep, rich voice. She feels that she will fall in love with him if he does.
  • He does indeed call out to her from the next room, but his voice, now separate from his tall stature, is thin and high-pitched, and it turns her off.
  • This saves her from temptation. She quickly dresses and leaves.
