Fernando Pessoa: The Book of Disquiet



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Assembled from notes and jottings left unpublished at the time of the author's death, The Book of Disquiet is a collection of aphoristic prose-poetry musings on dreams, solitude, time and memory. Credited to Pessoa's alter ego, Bernardo Soares, who chronicles his contemplations in this so-called 'factless' autobiography, the work contains various 'heteronyms' – each equipped with their own name, personality, biography and writing style. Through these multiple personalities, Soares lives a rich and varied existence within the contours of his own mind. He lives as a pirate, merchant, knight-errant and so on – a lover of countless women and a witness of countless sunsets. Soares has no ambition, nor has he any friends; he is plagued with disquiet, and only imagination and dreams can conquer it. Compiled by the translator Richard Zenith, Fernando Pessoa's The Book of Disquiet is a fulgent tribute to the imagination of man.
