Got like 7500 words in uotes I collected only Can t share full review because of limits imposed by goodreads This gonna be too big a long review Chapter 1 The Depriciated Legacy of CervantesMilan Kundera draws a rough and brief sketch of history of novel Kundera insists that the novels should do what only novels can doCan novels die It has already happened About half a century ago the history of the novel came to a halt in the empire of Russian Communism That is an event of huge importance given the greatness of the Russian novel from Gogol to Bely Thus the death of the novel is not just a fanciful idea It has already happened And we now know how the novel dies it s not that it disappears it falls away from its history Its death occurs uietly unnoticed and no one is outragedBut it is not because the novels are useless If the novel should really disappear it will do so not because it has exhausted its powers but because it exists in a world grown alien to itThe novels published in Soviet Russia are inconseential By discovering nothing they fail to participate in the seuence of discoveries that for me constitutes the history of the novel they place themselves outside that history or if you like they are novels that come after the history of the novelChapter 2 A Dialogue on the art of novelKundera here argues two adjectives Psychological and philosphical can not be used for his novels To be honest as much as I understand his desire to avoid such labels Nabhokov didn t like them either Atwood doesn t like being feminist I think most great authors won t have been fans of these labels Such labels seem to arise of critics analysing the booksKundera also debunks several misconceptions on the rules of thumb regarding how novels should be written including psychological realism Kundera appreciates it it is defining uality of most of what I love in books in that excessive importance given to it can be really limiting to what novels can do He is critical of so called modern novels of 21 st century and writing novels that are too historical Historiography writes the history of society not of man That is why the historical events my novels talk about are often forgotten by historiography Example In the years that followed the 1968 Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia the reign of terror against the public was preceded by officially organized massacres of dogs An episode totally forgotten and without importance for a historian for a political scientist but of the utmost anthropological significance By this one episode alone I suggested the historical climate of The Farewell PartyPart 3 Notes Inspired by The SleepwalkersGonna have to read that book Most underrated of all great novels of last century according to Kundera All great works precisely because they are great contain something unachieved Broch is an inspiration to us not only because of what he brought off but also because of what he aimed for and missedThe unachieved in his work can show us the need for 1 a new art of radical divestment which can encompass the complexity of existence in the modern world without losing architectonic clarity 2 a new art of novelistic counterpoint which can blend philosophy narrative and dream into one music 3 a new art of the specifically novelistic essay which does not claim to bear an apodictic message but remains hypothetical playful or ironicPart 4 The Art of CompositionAnother interview First of all the novel is like music which should have Harsh juxtapositions instead of transitions repetition instead of variation and always head straight for the heart of things only the note that says something essential has the right to exist Roughly the same idea applies to the novel it too is weighed down by techniue by the conventions that do the author s work for him present a character describe a milieu bring the action into a historical situation fill time in the characters lives with superfluous episodes each shift of scene calls for new exposition description explanation My own imperative is Janacekian to rid the novel of the automatism of novelistic techniue of novelistic verbalism to make it denseIf you have read his books you probably have noticed that his writings do try to cut to the main point To make your work longer is so 19the century according to KunderaAnd then here is something I hear a lot myself Show not tell Kundera often speaks himself in his books Rushdi does it too and I can understand why they should do so the trouble is showing makes books bigger than they need be and Even if I m the one speaking my reflections are connected to a character I want to think his attitudes his way of seeing things in his stead and deeply than he could do it himselfAnd last Kundera would have considered Games of thrones and most of netflix series a farce CS What does the word farce mean to youMK A form that puts enormous stress on plot with its whole machinery of unforeseen and exaggerated coincidencesPart 5 Somewhere Else When Kafka read the first chapter of The Trial to his friends everyone laughed including the authorKundera discusses the meaning of word Kafesue This is best analysis I have found on Kafka even better than one provided by Camus in Myth of Sysphyus But then Kundera had the added advantage of having lived in Czech Republic which was highly KafesueOne uality of Kafesue is ability of powerful to make the punished feel guilty One day Amalia receives an obscene letter from a Castle official Outraged she tears it up The Castle doesn t even need to criticize Amalia s rash behavior Fear the same fear our engineer saw in his secretary s eyes acts all by itself With no order no perceptible sign from the Castle everyone avoids Amalia s family like the plagueAmalia s father tries to defend his family But there is a problem Not only is the source of the verdict impossible to find but the verdict itself does not exist To appeal to reuest a pardon you have to be convicted first The father begs the Castle to proclaim the crime So it s not enough to say that the punishment seeks the offense In this pseudotheological world the punished beg for recognition of their guiltAnd the humor The comic is inseparable from the very essence of the Kafkan But it s small comfort to the engineer to know that his story is comic He is trapped in the joke of his own life like a fish in a bowl he doesn t find it funny Indeed a joke is a joke only if you re outside the bowl by contrast the Kafkan takes us inside into the guts of a joke into the horror of the comicWhich worsens the tragedy the tragic bearable by lightening the tone it doesn t accompany the tragic not at all it destroys it in the egg and thus deprives the victims of the only consolation they could hope for the consolation to be found in the real or supposed grandeur of tragedy There is a loss of solitude and privacy The Land Surveyor K is not in the least pursuing people and their warmth he is not trying to become a man among men like Sartre s Orestes he wants acceptance not from a community but from an institution To have it he must pay dearly he must renounce his solitude And this is his hell he is never alone the two assistants sent by the Castle follow him always When he first makes love with Frieda the two men are there sitting on the cafe counter over the lovers and from then on they are never absent from their bed Not the curse of solitude but the violation of solitude is Kafka s obsessionUSSR was heavily Kafesue in all these ways But Kafka made no prophecies All he did was see what was behind He did not know that his seeing was also a fore seeing He did not intend to unmask a social system He shed light on the mechanisms he knew from private and microsocial human practice not suspecting that later developments would put those mechanisms into action on the great stage of HistoryChapter 6 Sixty three words I once left a publisher for the sole reason that he tried to change my semicolons to periodsA dictionary Kundera created to help his translators Obscenity We can use obscene words in a foreign language but they are not heard as such An obscenity pronounced with an accent becomes comical The difficulty of being obscene with a foreign woman Obscenity the root that attaches us most deeply to our homelandOpus The excellent custom of composers They give opus numbers only to works they see as valid They do not number works written in their immature period or occasional pieces or technical exercises Vulgarity the humiliating submission of the soul to the rule of the down below The novel first undertook the immense theme of vulgarity in Joyce s UlyssesKitsch Unknown in France or known only in a very impoverished sense In the French version of Hermann Broch s celebrated essay the word kitsch is translated as junk art art de pacotille A misinterpretation for Broch demonstrates that kitsch is something other than simply a work in poor taste There is a kitsch attitude Kitsch behavior The kitsch man s Kitschmensch need for kitsch it is the need to gaze into the mirror of the beautifying lie and to be moved to tears of gratification at one s own reflectionMisomusist To be without a feeling for art is no disaster A person can live in peace without reading Proust or listening to Schubert But the misomusist does not live in peace He feels humiliated by the existence of something that is beyond him and he hates it There is a popular misomusy just as there is a popular anti Semitism The fascist and Communist regimes made use of it when they declared war on modern art But there is an intellectual sophisticated misomusy as well it takes revenge on art by forcing it to a purpose beyond the aesthetic The doctrine of engage art art as an instrument of politicsThe desire to be modern is an archetype that is an irrational imperative anchored deeply within us a persistent form whose content is changeable and indeterminate what is modern is what declares itself modern and is accepted as suchNonthought This cannot be translated by absence of thought Absence of thought indicates a nonreality the disappearance of a reality We cannot say that an absence is aggressive or that it is spreading Nonthought on the other hand describes a reality a force I can therefore say pervasive non thought the nonthought of received ideas the mass media s nonthought etcThe moment Kafka attracts attention than Joseph K Kafka s posthumous death beginsChapter 7 Jerusalem Address The Novel and Europe But what is that wisdom what is the novel There is a fine Jewish proverb Man thinks God laughs Inspired by that adage I like to imagine that Francois Rabelais heard God s laughter one day and thus was born the idea of the first great European novel It pleases me to think that the art of the novel came into the world as the echo of God s laughterWhat is opposite of a novelist an agelaste Francois Rabelais invented a number of neologisms that have since entered the French and other languages but one of his words has been forgotten and this is regrettable It is the word agelaste it comes from the Greek and it means a man who does not laugh who has no sense of humor Rabelais detested the agelastes He feared them He complained that the agelastes treated him so atrociously that he nearly stopped writing foreverNo peace is possible between the novelist and the agelaste Never having heard God s laughter the agelastes are convinced that the truth is obvious that all men necessarily think the same thing and that they themselves are exactly what they think they are But it is precisely in losing the certainty of truth and the unanimous agreement of others that man becomes an individual The novel is the imaginary paradise of individuals It is the territory where no one possesses the truth neither Anna nor Karenin but where everyone has the right to be understood both Anna and Kareninand most of self claimed philosphers I have come across are agelaste The novel s wisdom is different from that of philosophy The novel is born not of the theoretical spirit but of the spirit of humor One of Europe s major failures is that it never understood the most European of the arts the novel neither its spirit nor its great knowledge and discoveries nor the autonomy of its history The art inspired by God s laughter does not by nature serve ideological certitudes it contradicts them Like Penelope it undoes each night the tapestry that the theologians philosophers and learned men have woven the day beforeAnother problem a novelist fights is received ideas Flaubert used to collect such ideas He put them into a celebrated Dictionnaire des idees regues We can use this title to declare Modern stupidity means not ignorance but the nonthought of received ideas Flaubert s discovery is important for the future of the world than the most startling ideas of Marx or Freud For we could imagine the world without the class struggle or without psychoanalysis but not without the irresistible flood of received ideas that programmed into computers j propagated by the mass media threaten soon to become a force that will crush all original and individual thought and thus will smother the very essence of the European culture of the Modern EraKind of reminds me of most Modi Bhakts who would go repeating whatever the few right wings organisations tell them And the last enemy of novelist is kitsch The word kitsch describes the attitude of those who want to please the greatest number at any cost To please one must confirm what everyone wants to hear put oneself at the service of received ideas Kitsch is the translation of the stupidity of received ideas into the language of beauty and feeling It moves us to tears of compassion for ourselves for the banality of what we think and feel Today fifty years later Broch s remark is becoming truer still Given the imperative necessity to please and thereby to gain the attention of the greatest number the aesthetic of the mass media is inevitably that of kitschWhich is kind of my problem with most YA books 3.

I first read this book in the early 90s Recently I was in a spirited conversation about Boccaccio s Decameron One friend said that the stories were enjoyable but ultimately empty Now my friend is a smart guy but his remark struck me as remarkably stupid It just proved that he didn t get it The Decameron is full of laughter you can almost argue that it is constructed for laughter and laughter in the history of the novel is a value of its own Mocking wit a refusal of piety and platitude is intrinsic to the craft And thus I remembered KunderaThe chapters in The Art of the Novel advert to Kundera s heroes Rabelais Cervantes Sterne and Diderot Speaking of Don uixote he observersAt the time novels and readers had not yet signed the verisimilitude pact They were not looking to simulate reality they were looking to amuse amaze astonish enchant They were playful and therein lay their virtuosityIn the final chapter speaking of Gargantua and Pantagruel he insistsThe novel is born not of the theoretical spirit but of the spirit of humor The art inspired by God s laughter does not by nature serve ideological certitudes it contradicts them Like Penelope it undoes each night the tapestry that the theologians philosophers and learned men have woven the day beforeI ve been convinced of this perspective ever since I first read Slaughterhouse Five as a teenager Humor however black is for me the best wisest truest response of the artist to the horror of the world Last year I reread Metamorphosis and was astonished by how wickedly funny it was Kundera is excellent on Kafka Broch and Gombrowicz and elouent in his conviction that The sole raison d tre of a novel is to discover what only the novel can discover A novel that does not discover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral
