Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), Portugal's greatest poet since Camoes, is a central figure of European Modernism and its perception of a collapse of the post-Romantic `I' and of Western culture. Deeply introspective, seeking objectivity through `depersonalisation', he wrote in various distinct personae. This selection is the first in English to concentrate entirely on poems written in Pessoa's own name.
