Fernando Pessoa as English Reader and Writer
Guest editor: Patricio Ferrari & Jerónimo Pizarro

A collection of scholarly essays dedicated to Fernando Pessoa as English reader and writer including unpublished materiafrom the author’s archive and private library.

With Pessoa’s digitized private library online, the importance of English to Pessoa has become indisputable, particularly in his formative years: numerous English authors served as the bedrock from which his poetic sensibility emerged, developed and soared. In fact, a significant amount of Pessoa’s writings in English and in Portuguese (including those attributed to his heteronyms and/or to other literary personae) were greatly informed by these (his) original sources. Fernando Pessoa as English Reader and Writer provides ample evidence of his fruitful, lifelong relationship with the English language.
