Item description for La Despedida/the Departure (Coleccion Esenciales) (Coleccion Esenciales) by Milan Kundera...

Las narraciones que componen EL LIBRO DE LOS AMORES RIDCULOS son las ms alegres, las ms seriamente desvergonzadas y las ms reflexivamente divertidas de toda su obra. La farndula de personajes hedonistas que desfila ante los ojos del lector, todos ellos en busca de los juegos mltiples y contradictorios de la amistad, el amor y el sexo, y envueltos en un mundo lleno de severidad, hermetismo e inquisicin, no puede sino incitar a la risa. Una risa autntica, traviesa; un humor sabio, refinado y gozoso, al que nos tiene ya acostumbrados el autor de LA INSOPORTABLE LEVEDAD DEL SER.

These narrations are the most cheerful, the most seriously shameful and the most reflexively funny of Kundera's work. The (group) of hedonist characters appear here in search of multiple and contradictory games of friendship, love and sex.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Despedida/the Departure (Coleccion Esenciales) (Coleccion Esenciales)?

Primeros Pasos  May 20, 2001
Este es uno de los primeros libros de Kundera y eso se nota. Claro que para los aficionados al checo, los pecados de juventud del autor son un agradable paseo por los recursos kunderianos. "La insoportable brevedad del cuento" no parece ser el vehículo ideal para las pasiones lentamente informadas por Milan Kundera. De todos modos, la soberbia madurez de sus novelas posteriores ya se prefigura en estos seres que aman con una intensidad carnal, humana.
