    Abstract:
    If Fernando Pessoa’s Portuguese works contain a coterie of heteronyms, his English poetry also displays an array of fictitious authors: besides Pessoa himself, one finds Charles Robert Anon, Alexander Search and—with his poems compiled here for the first time in print—Frederick Wyatt. After Alexander Search’s presence, which dominated the English juvenilia of Pessoa, and before "The Mad Fiddler," submitted for publication (but rejected) in 1917, Pessoa created Frederick Wyatt, noting that “of dreamers no one was a greater dreamer than he.” Circa 1913, Pessoa introduced Wyatt in a preface and attributed to him 21 poems previously assigned to Alexander Search. Here we present the preliminary texts and poems of Frederick Wyatt, including new transcriptions and significant updates from previous editions.
