    1. On Monday at around 3 o clock in the afternoon I decided I was going to read The Joke I don t really know why it occurred to me out of the blue the only thought I d ever given Kundera before that point was that the titles of his books obviously lived in a world devoid of irony in order to persist in their existence, and that that unironic world was one I wanted no part of On the other hand, I really liked the title The Joke and I d always liked the font in which it was written That was about all [...]



    2. The Set UpMilan Kundera wrote this, his first, novel in his early 30 s.I had already read and loved two later works, and was expecting it to be somehow inferior, as if he was still learning the ropes However, it s an amazingly mature novel, and could fit anywhere in his body of work.For all its metaphysical concerns, the writing style is very much concerned with the material world and the dynamism within it Philosophy derives partly from the activity of external factors The first person narrator [...]



    3. she had been caught stealing flowers in a cemetery You know the theory which speculates that married men are way funnier than unmarried one because they have got the punchline The above joke is a test of how satisfied men are from their marriages and must never be made in presence of wives, as some husbands have imprudence to laugh on it But that is the thing about jokes You don t make something funny, funny is already in air in form of unhappy husbands it won t be funny to kids who know little [...]

    5. I like Kundra because he doesn t imprison me in a fastened frame of a classic narration Reading Kundra seems as if you meet an old friend after ages in a cafe shop, and while she he relates her his life story, you zip your coffee, listen to the cafe music, hear some chats and laughs at nabouring tables, look at the peddlers at side walk, or a passing tramvay, as life is flowing around, 1370


    6. Thorns Thou Sow in the Garden of the SoulI was surprisingly impressed with the depth, accessibility and enjoyability of this novel, which Kundera wrote in 1965 and it was published in 1967 and apparently played a role in the Prague Spring that year.In the early 1950s Czechoslovakia, Ludvik Jahn, a university student with a great sense of humor, was a strong supporter of the Communist regime after World War II Attempting to show his girlfriend a bit of charm and a sense of humor over the summer w [...]


    7. There was a time when I read a lot of Milan Kundera but with the exception of The Joke they have blended together in my memory.The novel is a twist on a revenge novel like The Count of Monte Cristo There has been a wrong here too, and the perpetrator of it has moved in on the Hero s love The digging though, is part of the punishment and not a means to escape The twist is that the attempt at revenge goes awry view spoiler mind that is not much a twist really hide spoiler.What we see instead is a [...]




    8. Kundera and his magic pen Four different characters, four different points of view, narrate through 20 or so years in a fast changing world Ludvik, the main character wishes to take revenge from a man who kicked him out of the Party when he was a student due to a joke he made, by humiliating his wife Things don t go as planned though and a lesson is taught the hard way Heraclitus said that one cannot step into the same river twice Everything is in a constant state of changing Things that once we [...]


    9. The Joke was Milan Kundera s first novel He began writing it in 1962, it was completed in 1965, first published in 1967 as ert and first translated into English in 1969 Kundera didn t like the English translation as the translators completely changed the structure of the book The irony that the book was published in Communist Czechoslovakia uncensored but completely altered and re arranged when published in the West was not lost on Kundera The translation that I read is by Michael Henry Heim and [...]







    10. Read this book in my spare time during a short stint working in a bookstore and it immediately and I dare say permanently lodged itself into my list of beloved books.Why this book s rating lies below four stars befuddles me It s an exciting and provocative tale of the dehumanization of a person by an autocratic state Fuck 1984 and Brave New World Kundera saw them all and raised.




    11. In The Joke we have vintage Kundera emotionally and intellectually challenging, ripe with the intertwining symbolism of the banal and the mystical, filled to the brim with romance, tragedy, comedy, and a pastiche of kitsch, which never once falls into kitsch itself Invoking a bit of irony, the novel is quite simply marvelous The Joke tells the story of several characters at various points in a or less fifteen year period, but is principally the tale of Ludvik Jahn, a fallen Czech Communist whos [...]
