The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 6, Chapter 15

By Milan Kundera

Part 6, Chapter 15

  • Franz's plane lands in Bangkok, and a group of about 500 intellectuals head to a meeting to gather and plan their march.
  • The European intellectuals are angry that a group of Americans have taken over the march and are trying to tell everyone else what to do.
  • To protest, the Europeans argue, but refuse to do so in English, which means the Americans don't know what they're saying.
