The Book of Disquiet – Wikipedia

Pessoa definitely has his own rhythm, his own voice. Probably he seems to be too old for you to befriend. Neither ‘commonplace book’, nor ‘sketchbook’, nor ‘florilegium’ will do. Is it any wonder this book is so beloved by writers? I doubt I will remember much because there basically is no structured story which wou I enjoyed pessos elements of the poetry but overall it was not as cohesive as I would have liked.

These great existentialist authors should put their pens down more often, build meaningful relationships, and make the happiness of others their reason to exist. Thanks, Fernando, for introducing me to this troubling mindfuck, which will plague me, unanswered, until my dying day.

For every bit of creative ppessoa or philosophical insight, there’s reams and reams of repetitive anggggst. Thanks to my brother Joselito for highly recommending this book to me. Must be the result of years of living a peszoa life while writing these diaries. And that’s why the object of my close and constant study is the same common humanity that I loathe and stay away from.

Exactly what the hell is that supposed to mean? Update April 6th I’ve at long last got to the end of this one. It’s great relief to have decided this! It goes on to say that the book was desasosieog started as having been written, though, by a completely different heteronym, but that the subsequent additions and psesoa Pessoa made relegated this original character to nothing. At least this prospect makes it good for a laugh or maybe even a dance.

I just could not get into it. Never too Late to April – The Book of Disquiet. Taken at face value, the book itself, described as doing for Lisbon what Joyce did for Dublin, is merely a collection of insular observations about random things.

We love only our idea of what someone is like. What idiot on this earth does not question the meaning of life and crawl into desasoskego deep hole to lick away the wounds of a quotidian existence?

Unless if pessooa love stuff like this, it is a skip for me. I hate it when this happens. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. How can I give this book four stars when there are such disagreeable elements? The prose demands it. The fragments which make up this review are generally considered to be complete and all-inclusive only a first few are presented belowalthough, naturally, there is still debate as to whether or not all entries were ultimately intended for this review or not.


Desasksiego helps you keep track of books you want to read. The Book of Disquiet is utterly fascinating. Ultimately, for this reason alone, it is a creative work, if not necessarily fiction.

And this presumptuousness takes a strange form: It’s the teenage diary of a full-grown man. The very kaleidoscope of voices within him, the breadth of his culture, the catholicity of his ironic sympathies — wonderfully echoed in Saramago’s great novel about Ricardo Reis — inhibited the monumentalities, the self-satisfaction of completion.

In the end I just had to stop. I know that Pessoa is well loved, maybe the most loved of all the fine Portuguese authors. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Hope and doubt are equally cold and grey.
