Sobre o livro
A primeira biografia inglesa de Fernando Pessoa, um escritor universal cuja obra e história de vida ficam agora ao alcance de muitos milhares de leitores.
The Poet with Many Faces é a primeira biografia inglesa de Fernando Pessoa. Escrito na década de 1970, o livro deveria ter sido impresso em 1974, mas a Revolução dos Cravos interrompeu os planos editoriais. O dactiloscrito, encontrado numa garagem em Joanesburgo, na África do Sul, é agora enfim publicado.
INCLUI IMAGENS E UMA ANTOLOGIA DA POESIA PESSOANA
Fernando Pessoa is not easy to get to know. Even during his lifetime his friends remarked on a certain quicksilver quality about him that made it appear as though he was always slipping through their hands [...]. There still remains the barrier of his reticences, his pudor and his sensitivity and the constant retreat behind the masks by which he could both conceal and reveal. [...] We join him in his search for self-identity. Perhaps because we feel it is a search for our own self-identity. Or it may be a game. Or a ritual. Or a religion. It can be any of these according to how the puckish spirit of Fernando Pessoa rules.
