I suppose one cannot make a blanket statement about such things, but I suspect that to write something like The Book of Disquietone needs to contain in one’s self, more than a just a sliver of Soares.

Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter. Forced to choose between reading Chateubriand or Vieira, I would choose Vieira without a moment’s hesitation. Una persona in questa posizione deve convivere troppo tempo libero, troppe energie e troppe frustrazioni represse; finisce per annegare nella noia, nel tedio, in una feroce impotenza che cerca di sublimare trascrivendo in un libro questo, appunto il suo flusso di pensieri lasciato libero dalla mancanza di sfide e di occupazione.

Pessoa wallows in misery like a pig in shit. Sounds good on a first glance.

It’s not clear whether Pessoa regarded the frrnando as a novel. It’s even suggested that it’s one of the great Modernist novels of the 20th Century. His intelligence served only to bemoan the tragedy of coexisting with such a sensibility.

Ultimately, for this reason alone, it is a creative work, if not necessarily fiction.

Which translation shall I read then? Fragments on their own, can be enjoyed but if you read several of these fragments you realise what a one trick pony this book really is and that it’s really not as “deep” as it first seems.

Pessoa invented multiple personas for himself that he called heteronyms, and each of his novels or collections of poetry was written from the perspective of an alter ego. Pessoa manstruates, and the world is alright.

Probably he seems to be too old for you to befriend. We love only our idea of what someone is like. That would be worse than this. He sings his thoughts through his writings and then dances on the music he creates during this process. Most of it just seems to be fake. What is the book about? There is nothing to hold onto, nothing to keep you going.

It is a disquiet soul’s rambling. Life is empty and dreary and oppressive and so on. Este me lo acabo. It’s not a work that I could just sit down and read from cover to cover.

After Pessoa died, a trunk filled with his unpublished and unfinished writings was found. Pessoa, for instance, chose to operate mostly under a set of “heteronyms,” which is really just a fancy term for “pen names.

View all 3 comments. The Book of Disquiet is utterly fascinating. He is the only one who neither disguises nor deludes himself.

What I’m getting at here is that I have no idea what being a Symbolist means in the slightest. Frankly, the only interesting part was when he talked about Lisbon, his beloved Lisboa.

The critic Harold Bloom referred to him in the book The Western Canon as the most representative poet of the twentieth century, along with Pablo Neruda. Emerson alluded to it once that I’m aware of, and where it may have appeared in other works, I am uncertain enough to cite any other dezasosiego.

For me, humanity is one vast decorative motif, existing through one’s eyes and ears and through psychological emotion.
