All You Bookworms Need To Head Over To Oxford Bookstore And Party Like Kafka!

We just found the perfect event that is going to treat the intellectual in you! If you have constantly found yourselves surrounded by questions of your existence and whether life is just a series of absurd events making no real sense or is an integration of tiny realities, this is just the right place for that!
The existential literature varies from denouncing life as full of suffering and existence to working towards giving our own unique meaning to life. Herman Melville’s brilliant ‘Bartlebly, The Scrivener’ tells the story of a man who fails to find any sense in life’ and prefers not to find any sense in life in any social way. Albert Camus similarly found life absurd and meaningless.

And Kafka, insists that life is full of struggle and our inauthentic existence does not make any sense. On the other hand, Salinger’s ‘Catcher in the Rye’ finds the protagonist finds life pretentious and ultimately inching slowly towards death.

Instead of being overwhelmed by the meaning of life, he comes to believe in the value of authenticity and alienates himself with the so-called phonies.
Whatever are the secrets of our existence, find them out in the presence of like-minded people in a discussion at the Oxford Bookstore. Indulge in the conversation and find out the answers to all your questions, decoding the theories of different authors!
Talk about the theory of evolution or whether or not a parallel universe exists!
