Product Description

In his book-length essay, writer Milan Kundera suggests that the 'curtain' represents a ready-made perception of the world that each of us has - a pre-interpreted world. The task of the novelist is to rip through the curtain and reveal what it hides. In sketching out his personal view of the history and value of the novel in Western civilization, Kundera celebrates a prose form that possesses the unique ability to transcend national and language boundaries in order to reveal some previously unknown aspect of human existence. 'Brilliant, vehement, learned.' 168p.
