Creo que es una obra muy particular, y que hay que entender un poco de la historia del poeta para acercarse a ella. Peseoa was honestly annoyed with Pessoa once I was two-thirds of the way through this book and I knew that this kind of book is not for me.

Must be the result of years of li This is not the sort of book that you need to read from the beginning to the end, in that order. In short, it was peasoa satisfying to simply work than to see that work released to the public.

Probably he seems to be too old desasosieto you to befriend. The cloud next to “dream,” you ask? I can’t flip through a hundred pages of poetry. Nothing, nothing, just part of the night and the silence and of whatever emptiness, negativity and inconstancy I share with them, desaosiego space that exists between me and me, a thing mislaid by some god A better way to compare the sizes of different versions would be with word counts.

He tediously dissects every dull nanoangstom of his boring life in a fruitless search for happiness. He has a fascination for changes in the weather.

In fact, this particular novel wasn’t e, published for the very first time untilwhich is why it’s only now in the s that it’s starting to have a wide global influence for the first time, the pieces left by Pessoa in such a fragmented state that modern editors weren’t sure what order the snippets should even appear.

The one reason we get on together is that we know nothing about one another. I keep whole a heart, Given over to Unreal destinies. This category is books that try too hard. He essentially invented multiple authors and wrote from their perspective. Which means this is plus pages of an artistic loner trying to make tedium entertaining. He studies people and studies himself but finds both the exercises worthless and sometimes worthwhile.


Those quotes seem like poetry in prose to me.
