The Unbearable Lightness of Being: Part 7, Chapter 3 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
The next morning, Karenin refuses to get up for his morning walk. Tereza marks a place out between two apple trees. Tomas asks her if she is marking Karenin’s grave, but she doesn’t answer. 
By not answering Tomas, Tereza attempts to ignore, or deny, the fact that she is marking Karenin’s grave, which again is a form of kitsch.
