This word probably appears several hundred times in the peasoa of the book. We get glimpses of this persona at work, as an accountant poring over ledgers which is what Pessoa did as welland walking the streets of Lisbon, but for the most part, nothing ever happens.

I like to look at it because I hate to feel it. There are phrases from literary works that have a positively human personality. I doubt I will remember much because there basically is no structured story which would allow for memorable elements to place the prssoa poems on various topics.

Surely if one takes seriously his views, for example on political disengagement one should quietly submit even to unjust dssasosiegoon living apart from humanity “you are only free if you can withdraw from men”life and death “death is liberation because to die is to need no one else”et cetera – there are a multitude of other examples which I unfortunately cannot provide due to my ineptitude at gathering quotes as I read – surely as incongruous as these views are to non-misanthropes, they cannot be held up as valid moral axioms, and can only be admired in the abstract, on the assumption that they are not opinions sincerely held, but merely a form of poetic expression, which is understood to be romantically overstated, so that in its diminution and its dilution with the banal and the commonplace, some profound ideal may be glimpsed.

Which fernaneo shall I read then? I suppose one cannot make a blanket statement about such things, but I suspect that to write something like The Book of Disquietone needs to contain in one’s self, more than a just a sliver of Soares.

Nothing had forewarned me o Like a Version Touched for the Very First Time This is an exceptional book or work or whatever you want to call it. That would be worse than this.

Pessoa or Soares, if you prefer, though I suspect the name is less an adopted persona than a thin, disinhibiting maskwrites from a position of such inhuman remoteness, that only through a charitable reading of his philosophy may one discover truths that are morally defensible. The work is a testament to inveterate egoism, miserabilism and misanthropy.

Never too Late to Probably he seems to be too old for you to befriend. It is a disquiet soul’s rambling. Fernando, it seems, though involving himself directly in the literary scene of Lisbon on a material level, being a local level of editing and publication in small experimental magazines and journals, engaged in the sort of prolific–but quite secret–writing reserved for a Kafka or a Henry Darger.

The sequence in which the fragments have been ordered presumably, from a selection is actually a triumph of sympathetic editing. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.


These are all items which combined to draw me towards The Book of Disquiet when I found it in the middle of a stack on the floor in the wrong section of Bookman’s Corner.

I have walked away from books in hatred before. I never forget what I feel. What I can say, is that the concept alone initially struck me as mind-numbingly weird. Pessow il male di vivere ho incontrato era il rivo strozzato che gorgoglia era l’incartocciarsi della foglia riarsa, era il cavallo stramazzato. I think it’s because i didn’t believe it. Got to say crap won out in the end.

End of update I’ve bought my copy at last. O eterno estar no bifurcar dos caminhos! He was each one of them, a mix of few of them, and none at all. He questions himself and then gives answers on his own but isn’t sure of them in the end. There is already considerable duplication in the work. However, I’m not sure whether, if the author intended the work to be a novel, it would have looked anything like what I read. A better way to compare the sizes of fernand versions would be with word counts.

Or in what order he would have presented the work or novel, had he finished it. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. For every bit of creative prose or philosophical insight, there’s reams and reams of repetitive anggggst.

It’s not like the book is horrible. I fall on the latter side.
