The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 4, Chapter 29

By Milan Kundera

Part 4, Chapter 29

  • Tereza wakes up at home alone.
  • She leaves home and goes to the Vltava river.
  • In it, she sees Prague's red, yellow, and blue benches floating down its waters.
  • (We can take a stab here and say we're in another dream sequence.)
  • She understands that what she is looking at is a farewell.
