The Book of Disquiet The rediscovery in the 1990s of the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa 1888 1935 is reminiscent of the rediscovery of Kafka in the 1950s Like Kafka, Pessoa left his work in disarray, much of it to be published posthumously And Pessoa is fast becoming an icon of postmodernism, as Kafka was of modernism Pessoa s mystique comes largely from his practice of writing under heteronyms, each supplied with distinct biographies, life spans, even horoscopes In The Book of Disquiet, Pessoa came as close as he would to autobiography But this book is, like so much about Pessoa, an object of mystery Left on disordered scraps of paper in a trunk, the fragments that make up The Book of Disquiet have no fixed sequence, and therefore each reader must make out of them a different text This translation, published in hardcover by Pantheon in 1991, has been widely reviewed as the best available.

  4. We re well aware that every creative work is imperfect and that our most dubious aesthetic contemplation will be the one whose object is what we write But everything is imperfect There s no sunset so lovely it couldn t be yet lovelier, no gentle breeze bringing us sleep that couldn t bring yet sounder sleep Almost all my feelings As soon as I turned the last page, I realized how much I was going to miss The Book of Disquiet For it has been my faithful companion for over two weeks, as my fWe re well aware that every creative work is imperfect and that our most dubious aesthetic contemplation will be the one whose object is what we write But everything is imperfect There s no sunset so lovely it couldn t be yet lovelier, no gentle breeze bringing us sleep that couldn t bring yet sounder sleep Almost all my feelings As soon as I turned the last page, I realized how much I was going to miss The Book of Disquiet For it has been my faithful companion for over two weeks, as my friends are witness for their company was always there with me As soon as I turned the last page, I worried, what am I going to do now But now it seems my only consolation is all the quotes I collected during this lavish period So I now populate my new solitude with these gems, with Fernando Pessoa s amazin...
