The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being

by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 6, Chapter 4 Summary

  • Similarly, theologians considered the question of whether or not Adam and Eve had sex in the Garden of Eden.
  • A ninth century theologian posited that they did, but that Adam was in complete control of when he was and was not aroused. There was no involuntary sexual excitement for him.
  • The narrator associates man's ability to feel excited with his ability to feel disgust. Both were off limits to Adam in Paradise.
  • The narrator reminds you that, in Part 3 of this novel, he showed you Sabina standing naked with the bowler hat on her bed, next to a fully dressed Tomas.
  • She was excited by the thought of her own denigration in front of him, and she fantasized about letting Tomas watch her defecate.
