The Trouble With Being Born


-
Add to Calendar Europe/Paris The Trouble With Being Born

E. M. Cioran grapples with the major questions of human existence: birth, death, God, the passing of time, how to relate to others and how to make ourselves get out of bed in the morning. In a series of interlinking aphorisms which are at once pessimistic, poetic and extremely funny, Cioran finds a kind of joy in his own despair, revelling in the absurdity and futility of our existence, and our inability to live in the world. Translated by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and critic Richard Howard, ‘The Trouble With Being Born’ is a provocative, illuminating testament to a singular mind.
