Love and Fame in Fernando Pessoa
George Monteiro's "Love and Fame in
Fernando Pessoa" book

George Monteiro's Love and Fame in Fernando Pessoa is comprised of five essays and an introduction by the author. The subjects of the essays are (1) the poet-critic's long-standing interest in all things Shakespeare, (2) his debts to Edgar Allan Poe's poetry and theories, (3) the poet's long, daring, poem (in English) "Antinous," (4) the Victorian poet Arthur Hugh Clough's influence on Pessoa's poetry, and (5) the Decadent poet Ernest Dowson's influence on Pessoa's writing.
