A brilliant and thought-provoking essay from one of the twentieth centuryâ€™s masters of fiction, Testaments Betrayed is written like a novel: the same characters appear and reappear throughout the nine parts of the book, as do the principal themes that preoccupy the author. Kundera is a passionate defender of the moral rights of the artist and the respect due a work of art and its creatorâ€™s wishes. The betrayal of bothâ€”often by their most passionate proponentsâ€”is one of the key ideas that informs this strikingly original and elegant book.
