Fernando Pessoa is one of the 20th century's greatest poets. Born in Lisbon in 1888, Pessoa was only forty-seven when he died, but he left behind a staggering number of unpublished manuscripts that are still being brought to light. George Steiner heralded the day Pessoa discovered his major Portuguese heteronyms. Today, well over a hundred Pessoa heteronyms are known. Lately, another Pessoa is emerging—an English writer and thinker. In this volume Monteiro continues to explore and interpret the world of Pessoa to English-speaking readers.
