Well, to be honest, my criticism of Kundera is biased in that, to a significant but not excessive degree, I am a superman. And so I have transcended kitsch, especially the materialistic Western, dare I say, Christian European bourgeois manifestations. This is where I largely feel Kundera's values malign the spirit of Nietzsche's intent in conveying the importance of one life even if it may appear insignificant if placed within an eternal loop of recurrence. His story characters suffer from a narcissistic self-absorption I found nauseating, and to have put so much detail and importance within the story's plot to these types of values and emotions totally sickened me. Its just that I'm a Nietzschean purist, forgive my obsessions.
But yes, I also enjoy stories about characters in history, at the moment reading Camus. Now there's a writer who knows his way around kitsch.
