The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 2, Chapter 19

By Milan Kundera

Part 2, Chapter 19

  • Tereza remembers the fantasy Sabina outlined to Tomas in the letter she discovered (in which Sabina and Tomas make love on a stage). Tereza is now excited by the thought and repeats Sabina's words to Tomas while they make love.
  • She considers that, if Tomas took her along on his affairs, she would no longer feel betrayed.
  • She and Tomas would be one, and other women would merely be their playthings.
