The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The Unbearable Lightness of Being


by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 6, Chapter 6 Summary

  • Sabina's inner revolt against Communism was an aesthetic one, not an ethical one.
  • She hated the mask of beauty that Communism wore – she hated its kitsch.
  • She remembers the May Day parades in which the regime convinced people to celebrate life as a way of promoting Communism.
  • This masked the real theses behind its foundation and tricked people into embracing it.
