Publisher's Summary

Milan Kundera's brilliant collection of essays is a passionate defence of art in an era that, he argues, no longer values art or beauty. With the same dazzling mix of emotion and ideas that characterises his best-selling novels, the internationally acclaimed author revisits the artists whose works help us better understand what it means to be human.

Elegant, startlingly original, and provocative, Encounter combines many of the author's signature themes with personal reflections and stories.
