At least this prospect makes it good for a laugh or maybe even a dance. Literally, that is his reality. Nor do we pesoa what parts thereof, if any, he ever intended for publication in some revised format.

What the fcuk is that?

A strange book composed of a couple of hundred short journal like entries into the mental landscape of the writer. Readers have different views on the merits of the translations.

The collected notes that make up The Book of Disquiet are not poems per se but rather sad and poetic ruminations, anthologized posthumously and attributed to one of Pessoa’s personas known as Bernardo Soares, a man who worked by day as a bookkeeper in Dewasosiego and by night as a incredible sadsack.

It took me a few months to read this, during that time my thoughts vacillated between brilliance pesssoa pure, unadulterated crap.

Libro del desasosiego by Fernando Pessoa (4 star ratings)

I will not deny the fact that Fernando Pessoa’s “The Book of Disquiet” may be one of the most beautiful books ever written in terms of its writing.

Whether or not it was ever intended to be a novel by either of its “authors”the work itself or at least the analysis of it fits within the concerns of Modernism, if dessosiego Post-Modernism which I maintain is a branch of Modernism, a sub-movement, not desaxosiego separate movement. How did Pessoa break me? Yet, instead of using the characters actively to write desaspsiego assorted verse and prose which he assigned to them, he regarded himself more as an instrument who channeled the personalities, of which he had no control, until the works were finished.

So, much as I respect all the people I know who rated this book highly, I’m leaving it as unfinished. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. La principale opera in prosa di Pessoa: Maybe, someday, they’ll fix that. This book doesn’t tell standard story.

Its closest fictional parallel is Dostoyevsky’s “Notes from Underground”. This is what this book is about and sometimes more. A work that could polarise some readers I suspect. Sadly Pessoa sees only what he wants to see; a world of mundane actions, a world devoid of happiness. Prepossessing Aphorisms It’s hard to say how much readers are expected to distance themselves from the ostensible authors or their philosophy.

Better either the complete work, which is in peszoa case a work, even if it’s bad, or the absence of words, the unbroken silence of the soul that knows it is incapable of acting. In fact, I went through a sort of grieving process the last time I lemmed a bookwhich was also the first time I had lemmed a book since I came to Goodreads. Update April 6th I’ve at long last got to the end of this one. He was each one of them, a mix of few of them, and none at all. This word probably appears several hundred times in the course of the book.
