The lyrical age, according to Kundera, is youth, and this novel, above all, is an epic of adolescence; an ironic epic that tenderly erodes sacrosanct values: childhood, motherhood, revolution, and even poetry. The chapters in The Art of the Novel advert to Kundera's heroes: Rabelais, Cervantes, Sterne and Diderot. Novelists draw up the map of existence by discovering this or that human possibilit.
