|Summary, etc.:|| Interweaves story and dream, past and present, and philosophy and poetry in a sardonic and erotic tale of two couples--Tomas and Tereza, and Sabina and her Swiss lover, Gerhart. Controlled by day, Tereza's jealousy awakens by night, transformed into ineffably sad death-dreams, while Tomas, a successful surgeon, alternates loving devotion to the dependent Tereza with the ardent pursuit of other women. Sabina, an independent, free-spirited artist, lives her life as a series of betrayals, whereas her lover, the intellectual Franz, loses all because of his earnest goodness and fidelity.
