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 idea that characterizes his novels Milan Kundera illuminates the art and artists who remain important to him and whose work helps us better understand the world. Art, he argues, is what we have to cleave to in the face of evil, against the expression of the darker side of human nature. Elegant, startlingly original and provocative, Encounter is the latest of Kundera's essay collections, The Art of the Novel, Testaments Betrayed and The Curtain
