Amazon.com description: Product Description: Solo el gran arte de la novela es capaz de desgarrar por un instante el telon de prejuicios y preinterpretaciones con que desciframos no solo nuestra vida sino la historia entera de la humanidad. Mas aun: tal vez la novela sea el ultimo observatorio que nos permite abrazar la existencia humana en su conjunto y lanzar «una mirada al alma de las cosas». El novelista y ensayista Milan Kundera nos invita en El Telon a participar en el secreto dialogo que mantienen los grandes nombres de la tradicion occidental. Unas obras iluminan a otras, los escritores descubren aspectos inusitados en sus antecesores, que a su vez inspiraran a sus sucesores de muy diversa manera: Rabelais, Cervantes, Diderot, Fielding, Flaubert, Joyce, Kafka, Garcia Marquez... El resultado es una pequeña y particular «pleyade» literaria que kundera comparte con los lectores y una iluminadora historia personal de la literatura. / Only the great art of the novel is capable of tearing up for a moment the curtain of prejudice and preinterpretaciones not only be decrypted with our lives but the entire history of mankind. Moreover, the novel might be the last observatory that enables us to embrace human existence as a whole and to launch ""a look at the soul of things."" The essayist and novelist Milan Kundera, invites us to participate in the curtain on the secret dialogue between the big names of the Western tradition. Illuminate other works, the writers discovered unusual aspects in its predecessors, which in turn inspire their successors in many different ways: Rabelais, Cervantes, Diderot, Fielding, Flaubert, Joyce, Kafka, Garcia Marquez ... The result is a small and particular 'galaxy' literary Kundera shares with readers and an illuminating history of literature.
