Fernando Pessoa as English Reader and Writer

of scholarly

Now that Pessoa’s digitized private library is available online, the importance of English to Pessoa, particularly in his formative years, has become indisputable. The writings of English authors served as the bedrock from which his poetic sensibility emerged, developed, and soared. In fact, a significant number of Pessoa’s writings both in English and in Portuguese (including those attributed to his heteronyms and to other literary personae) were significantly informed by these literary sources. Fernando Pessoa as English Reader and Writer provides ample evidence of his lifelong relationship with the English language.
