About the book:

EVERY NOVELIST S WORK CONTAINS AN IMPLICIT VISION OF THE HISTORY OF THE NOVEL, AN IDEA OF WHAT THE NOVEL IS. I HAVE TRIED TO EXPRESS HERE THE IDEA OF THE NOVEL THAT IS INHERENT IN MY OWN NOVELS. -- MILAN KUNDERA KUNDERA BRILLIANTLY EXAMINES THE WORK OF SUCH IMPORTANT AND DIVERSE FIGURES AS RABELAIS, CERVANTES, STERNE, DIDEROT, FLAUBERT, TOLSTOY, AND MUSIL. HE IS ESPECIALLY PENETRATING ON HERMANN BROCH, AND HIS EXPLORATION OF THE WORLD OF KAFKA S NOVELS VIVIDLY REVEALS THE COMIC TERROR OF KAFKA S BUREAUCRATIZED UNIVERSE. KUNDERA S DISCUSSION OF HIS OWN WORK INCLUDES HIS VIEWS ON THE ROLE OF HISTORICAL EVENTS IN FICTION, THE MEANING OF ACTION, AND THE CREATION OF CHARACTER IN THE POST-PSYCHOLOGICAL NOVEL.
