I get it, people love this book. It really just matters on how you interpret it.

Certainly the idea holds merit. Myron by Gore Vidal was a book which I once threw out in unquenchable contempt. For Pesxoa Book of Disquiet ends up being frightfully, dreadfully boring. Ma proprio il potente strumento della parola richiede una cura, pezsoa lavoro di cesello, una rilettura costante che in questo libro mancano.

The rest, the remainder–being what wasn’t in his lone book or the sections occasionally tossed out to the public via easily discarded folios–was written almost in secret and kept pwssoa a trunk which was not discovered until after Fernando’s death. His intelligence served only to bemoan the tragedy of coexisting with such a sensibility. I will not deny the fact that Fernando Pessoa’s “The Book of Disquiet” may be one of the most beautiful books ever written in terms of its writing.

I have walked away from books in hatred before. But how can one understand Pessoa when he himself never managed to do the same? To know yourself badly is to think.

Ultimately Pessoa’s description of depression and his refuge in uncaring will probably be something you relate to deeply or feel alienated from. I was perfectly happy with the quality of the text in the version I read plus I love the cover! I also wrote a story that I placed in comment 1 in the thread. Unfortunately, I don’t actually like it that much. I can’t flip through a hundred pages of poetry. As you can imagine, then, this leaves the reading experience as a challenge to say the least, but a deeply rewarding one for the dedicated lover of experimentalism who can stick with it for the entire thing, as Pessoa weaves together observation with introspection, served with a healthy dose of cutting-edge style; and it’s for sure destined to eventually become just as much a landmark of Early Modernist experimentation as T.

Though I don’t often enjoy doing this, it’s as though the only way to truly convey the character of the work is to quote it: From time to time Pessoa turns a sharp phrase. I’m in Lisbon for a day!

Nor is it clear whether he regarded any version or part of the desasosigo as a desassiego work. Vicente Guedes in a first phase in the s and 20sand the aforementioned Bernardo Soares late s and 30s. Nor do we know what parts thereof, if any, he ever intended for publication in some revised format. He was a dreamer and through dreaming he desawosiego. The editors have assembled the fragments in a thematic way, even though the same themes appear multiple times in the finished text.

However, ultimately, I found it both fascinating and just a little bit frustrating. It’s navel-gazing par excellence. Ay Ay Ay Caramba. So why write of large incidents when small ones suffice? But Pessoa— The pages remaining just seem insurmountable. Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter. Hence the vast torso of Pessoa’s Faust on which he laboured much of his life.


His social sensibility infected his theories, which his intelligence merely set forth with clarity. To do this, he covers himself with an armour of realities closer to him than the world’s facts and through which the facts, modified accordingly, reach him.

Nothing had forewarned me of this possibility. For then, for them, Tiny incidents Are imbued with Great significance. Is it any wonder this book is so beloved by writers? Melancholy Nihilism The fragmentation also reflects the philosophical concerns of the author s. If you don’t accept it as such, you are confronted with pages worth of loosely connected and often repeating concepts. A strange book composed of a couple of hundred short journal like entries into the mental landscape of the writer.

Thus, the existence of the heteronym allowed Pessoa to fully explore aspects of his imagination, aesthetics and philosophy, without any limitation inferred from its ultimate source in the one person.

Want to Read saving…. Several of these personas went on to write poems. It is sometimes said that the four greatest Portuguese poets of modern times are Fernando Pessoa.

I’m glad to see that it has been over a year now, with a lot of reads some As I clicked the “I’m finished” button on Goodreads, I must admit that I felt a sense of relief. Not even a hint of a narrative in the writing.
