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.
