The Book of Disquiet (Hardback)

Fernando Pessoa


The Book of Disquiet is one of the great literary works of the twentieth century. Written over the course of Fernando Pessoa's entire writing life and originally published nearly half a century after his death in 1935, this fragmentary modernist masterpiece appears now in this luxury hardback edition in order of original composition and with substantial new material. Narrated principally by an assistant bookkeeper named Bernardo Soares - an alias of sorts for Pessoa himself - The Book of Disquiet is Pessoa's 'factless autobiography', a mosaic of dreams, of hope and despair, of exquisite melancholy observations, aphorisms and ruminations. This new edition represents the most complete vision of Pessoa's genius.
