The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being


by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 4, Chapter 26 Summary

  • Back in the car, Tereza starts thinking that everything is in disguise: the old Czech town is covered in Russian names; the photographers who thought they were helping their country were really helping the Russians; the spies at her bar.
  • She remembers back to the scene in the engineer's apartment: she asked for coffee, he went to the kitchen, but he came back without the coffee. She is certain that he used the time he was gone to set up a camera to photograph them together.
  • Tereza thought she gained her privacy when she left her mother's house., but now she sees that she is still living under her mother's roof.
  • She and Tomas are still walking through the Czech square when someone calls out his name.
