The Selected Prose of Fernando Pessoa

The Selected Prose of Fernando Pessoa Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Washington Post Book World has written that Fernando Pessoa was Portugal's greatest writer of the twentieth century [though] some critics would even leave off that last qualifying phrase and one of the most appealing European modernists, equal in command and range to his contemporaries Rilke and Mandelstam. The Selected Prose of Fernando Pessoa spans playful philosophical inquiry, Platonic dialogue, and bitter intellectual scrapping between Pessoa and his many literary alter egos (heteronyms). The heteronyms launch movements and write manifestos, and one of them attempts to break up Pessoa's only known romantic relationship. Also included is a generous selection from Pessoa's masterpiece, The Book of Disquiet, freshly translated by Richard Zenith from newly discovered materials. The Selected Prose of Fernando Pessoa is an important record of a crucial part of the literary canon.
