Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143039555, Paperback)
Writing obsessively in French, English, and Portuguese, Fernando Pessoa left a prodigious body of work, much of it under "heteronyms"—fully fleshed alter egos with startlingly different styles and points of view. Offering a unique sampling of all his most famous voices, this collection features poems that have never before been translated alongside many originally composed in English. In addition to such major works as "Maritime Ode of Campos" and his Goethe-inspired Faust, written in blank verse, there are several stunning poems that have only come to light in the last five years. Selected and translated by leading Pessoa scholar Richard Zenith, this is the finest introduction available to the breadth of Pessoa’s genius.
The translations are based on the most authoritative editions, verified against the original manuscripts
Includes an Introduction discussing Pessoa, his work, and the phenomenon of "heteronymy" as well as a chronology

Writing obsessively in French, English, and Portuguese, poet Fernando Pessoa left a prodigious body of work, much of it credited to "heteronyms"--alter egos with startlingly different styles, points of view, and biographies. Offering a unique sampling of his famous voices, this collection features Pessoa's major, best known works and several stunning poems that have only come to light in this century, including his long, highly autobiographical swan song.
