Pessoa Fernando
(18881935)

Pessoa Fernando (18881935)

Portuguese poet, b. Lisbon. Reflecting the influence of both the classical tradition and French symbolism, his poetry moves from saudosismo, or nostalgia for a mythic past, to an increasing concern with consciousness and sensation. He is famous for having written under 73 different names. Four of these (his own, Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis, and Álvaro de Campos) are well known. Each of these personas has his own putative biography, physical characteristics, relationship to the others, poetic voice, and outlook, and in part reflects Pessoas disbelief in the idea of an integrated personality. Among Pessoas collections, which include poems in English, are Sonnets (1918), English Poems (1922), and Mensagem (1934).
