The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 6, Chapter 22 Summary

  • Franz next feels rage. He wishes, like Stalin's son, to throw himself at the border, to go out in a blaze of gunfire.
  • Franz is having trouble reconciling the glory of the Grand March with the vanity of its members, like the actress who fights to be up front.
  • He wants to prove, with a glorious death, that the Grand March is worth everything.
  • But man can never prove anything like this, says the narrator. The death of Stalin's son proved that the scales can't be tipped.
  • Instead of getting himself shot, Franz returns to the busses with the others.
