"Lidové noviny": denunciation Kundera wanted to redeem the sin of the party …
Weekly "Respekt" recalls that while Kundera was a staunch communist. "It may be that he decided to kill life with ideological circumstances," — wrote the publication.
A newspaper "Lidové noviny" makes the assumption that the denunciation Kundera tried to make amends for the sin against your own previous games. In 1949 he exchanged letters with one another, in which they criticized the 1st party functionary. Letters somehow got to the security service. Kundera others simply with the institution and the party ticket, and Kundera only with the party ticket.
In his famous novel "The Joke" since 1967 Kundera outlined a very similar situation: the protagonist sends a postcard to the girl with an innocent joke about communism. Party functionary at the institute, who also like the woman who catches the card and the hero reaches exception of school. The hero finds himself in the communist army and one hundred percent drank the bitter cup "vydvarennya of ordinary life."
Readers of "joke" so far identified Kundera likely pose a hero, who "kicked out of life." After the publication of the "case Dvorzhachka" many may come to mind the question, Kundera really stood on the other side, that all thought that he was standing. Tags:, Kundera dvorzhachak
