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…[Read more]
Though Fernando Pessoa is not widely known as a political poet, we may be familiar with the political commentary explicit in some of his works. In four political sonnets dating from 1905 (but only fully published in 1995), the poet criticizes the mockery of Russia by British journalists, calls the colonization of Ireland and the Transvaal “a s…[Read more]

Da obra genial de Fernando Pessoa, centenas de páginas permanecem desconhecidas. Ao investigar o espólio pessoano, Carlos Pittella e Jerónimo Pizarro resgatam da obscuridade textos (poemas, cartas, anotações, listas, artigos de imprensa) e desenhos (esquemas, caricaturas, cartas astrológicas) que dão testemunho de como a literatura pode mudar…[Read more]
Quem é Fausto? O que é o Fausto de Fernando Pessoa? Porque é que o Fausto de Pessoa existe, se já havia outros, como as obras‑primas de Christopher Marlowe e de Johann Wolfgang von Goethe? Por‑que merece a versão pessoana ser lida ou relida? E como deve ser lida: como peça em cinco actos, ou como constelação de centenas de fragmentos? Se entendid…[Read more]
“Fernando Pessoa is not easy to get to know. Even during his lifetime, his friends remarked on a certain quicksilver quality about him that made it appear as though he was always slipping through their hands […]. We join him in his search for self-identity. Perhaps because we feel it is a search for our own self-identity. Or it may be a game. Or…[Read more]

This article intends, thus, to reconstruct these influences, based on evidence found i…[Read more]
