Without madness what is man
But a wholesome beast,
Postponed corpse that begets?


عظيم بيسوا
بكل ما يكتب
بكل حرف سطره في لا طمأنينة الوجود
بكل لغة تُرجم إليها
بكل اسم تخفى وراءه
وبكل صوت تحدث على لسانه

عظيم بجنونه
وبعبقريته
وبتفرده
وبألقه
وبقيمته في نفوس معجبيه

عظيم بكل شهقة انبهار صعدت من فم احدنا
نحن المغتربين في هذه الدنيا
نحن المخلدين في أرق القلق
نخن المغموسين في شهد العزلة

بيسوا كلماته هي سفرنا
وملاذنا
وهويتنا

بيسوا هو ذلك الذي جاء ليعبر عنا أخيرا

Some might consider it eccentric that I could feel closer to Pessoa, this restless and mysterious Portuguese poet with a rather tragic life, than to actual living people with whom I share "real" conversations in my everyday life. He was a Shepherd of ideas, poetry his only way of existence, he who embraced solitude and anonymity with grace. He chose writing as his only release. Well then, I choose him. And I do it gladly.
So, I allowed this shepherd of thoughts to drag me into his world of unset

Não sou nada.

Álvaro de Campos, like Ricardo Reis, was born from Pessoa's soul on that legendary day in March 1914, when the Triumphal Ode was written, free of interruption or revision, in one single stroke of the pen.

Fernando Pessoa deu-lhe vida em Lisboa, mas levou-o a viver no sossego do Ribatejo trazendo-o de volta à capital para morrer tuberculoso ainda muito novo.
Foi assim, simples e sem sobressaltos a vida do " meu Pessoa" favorito; poeta da natureza, da objetividade, das sensações.
A sua poesia fala por si, na linguagem simples e ingénua de quem só fez a 4classe, é um louvor aos sentidos, à alegria de viver contemplando a realidade, sem pensar e sem necessidade de explicações. Apela a uma vida sem dor,

I wish that I could give this a million stars. I cannot praise Pessoa enough. The man was a poetic genius who created numerous heteronymns to write under, each with his own story and writing style. Each identity was an opportunity to flourish stylistically as well as thematically. The poems address our fears, dreams, successes, and failures. Perhaps the most amazing thing is how emotionally invested we become, like Pessoa is a dear friend of ours and we only want the best for him. In a world of ...more

"Não sou nada.
Nunca serei nada.
Não posso querer ser nada.

Stanza of Alvaro de Campos - Fernando Pessoa

"Segue o teu destino,
Rega as tuas plantas,
Ama as tuas rosas.
O resto é a sombra
De árvores alheias."


Fernando Pessoa

O que é que me tortura?... Se até a tua face calma
Só me enche de tédios e de ópios de ócios medonhos...
Não sei...Eu sou um doido que estranha a sua própria alma...
Eu fui amado em efígie num país para além dos sonhos...

Fernando Pessoa is all humanity compressed in one soul.

Pessoa is torn into many personalities, because he has too much to say and because he can’t say anything. Words are smoke, love a delusion, existence a sham, truth a perception, idea a dream and the only reality is; ‘Nothingness’. The only truth is the ineffability of emotions.

The rest, as Nabokov said, is rust and stardust.

We are ever unapparent. What we are
Cannot be transfused into word or book.

Não digas nada

Não digas nada!
Nem mesmo a verdade
Há tanta suavidade em nada se dizer
E tudo se entender —
Tudo metade
De sentir e de ver...
Não digas nada
Deixa esquecer

Talvez que amanhã
Em outra paisagem
Digas que foi vã
Toda essa viagem
Até onde quis
Ser quem me agrada...
Mas ali fui feliz
Não digas nada.

Fernando Pessoa ми се струва някак... особен. Именно това бе и причината да се влюбя безвъзвратно в думите му, и то още от първото прочетено изречение. Казвам "думите", защото самият той, доколкото разбирам, не се възприема като поет в истинския смисъл на думата:

Аз дори не съм поет: виждам.
Ако писаното от мен има стойност, аз я нямам:
Стойността е там, в стиховете ми.
Всичко то никак не зависи от волята ми.


Стихотворенията му успяха да смутят дълбоко онази част у мен, която бих могла приблизително

Fernando Pessoa, early 20th-century favorite of C.K. Williams, W.S. Merwin, Mark Strand, and other poetic illuminaries, took the childhood game of "imaginary friends" to another level. He developed various personas to write under, and this collection from City Lights Books in San Francisco includes a few of them.

Though I found many poems lackluster and/or treating on topics that didn't stir much interest, I'll accent the positive that the good poems brought for me as a reader. The first persona

Pessoa è stato il più grande sognatore del Novecento e anche il più solo, ma in sé aveva tutti i mondi possibili. Una bella raccolta, peccato non ci fosse la poesia Se qualcuno la lessi una volta in un'antologia e mi rapì perché nelle sue liriche si percepisce un senso di attesa e di stupore e di riscoperta. Sembra che il tempo si fermi per aspettare il nostro risveglio.

Why "the book of disquiet" isn't proposed in the list? This work is undoubtedly one of most important the XX century. Pessoa chooses the pseudonyms behind which it hides.
It is a game of hide-and-seek to protect himself. But its truth is in its poetries. He loves Lisboa, the Tagus.
I spend some times in this city to research him. I drunk old porto at Basiliera coffee.

Algunos poemas son tremendamente realistas, mientras otros son emocionales; así se logra observar un poco la contradicción en la que se encuentra el autor entre la razón y las emociones. Entre los heterónimos, mis poemas favoritos son de Alberto Caeiro, no obstante 'Tabaquería' y otros poemas que no llevan nombre de Álvaro de Campos también me gustaron. Terminé el libro con esa sensación de querer leer más del autor para disfrutarlo, pero también para conocerlo un poco más.

Alvaro de Campos is a genius amongst men. Melancholy and blue, his view on the world, or perhaps his absence from a view on the world, is unique yet universal. Tobacco shop is, currently, one of my favourite poems.

I'll always be the one who wasn't born for it
I'll always simply be the one with all the promise;
I'll always be the one waiting for the door to open at the wall without a door,
Who sang his anthem to infinity in a chicken coop,
Who heard the voice of God in a covered well.

My introduction to Pessoa was by his letters to his lover, Ophelia. The love and the way he reflects it to his lover was so intense that he gained my admiration promptly. Then I started reading his poems and learnt the word "occult" thanks to him and used it in my essay inadvertently that my teacher who is probably my favorite person in the whole word warned me that it's an old word and I shouldn't use it. Then we began talking about the world of poems and that was the moment I realized the inte ...more

The Caiero and Campos poems are quite good, sort of unaddressable really, and Pessoa's own earlier works are great, but he sort of slumped into odd mediocrity which his other splinter personalities never seemed to have experienced. Ries is included briefly, too, but he's mundane. The whole idea of the heteronym, basically an artistically productive imaginary friend, is neat. I can't count how many people who have read Pessoa who remarked that the whole enterprise was due to him being schizophren ...more

Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa was a poet and writer.

It is sometimes said that the four greatest Portuguese poets of modern times are Fernando Pessoa. The statement is possible since Pessoa, whose name means ‘person’ in Portuguese, had three alter egos who wrote in styles completely different from his own. In fact Pessoa wrote under dozens of names, but Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis and Álvaro de

“To be great, be whole;
Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor
Because it blooms up above.”
