About the Author

Eduardo Lourenço (1923-) is Portugal’s most celebrated literary and cultural critic today. He is recognized as the leading authority on the foremost Portuguese-language poet of the twentieth century, Fernando Pessoa. Lourenço’s vast writings on Portuguese literature and culture – somewhat the Portuguese equivalent of the essays of the Spaniards José Ortega y Gasset and Miguel Unamuno – have garnered two major prizes, the Charles Veillon European Essay Prize, for 1988, and the Camões Prize, for 1996.
