Poetry – Minimal Anthology

THE MOST CONCISE ANTHOLOGY OF THE VASTEST OF POETS
This book is an invitation to «unlearn Pessoa,» to use an expression by the master, Alberto Caeiro, and to read him as if we had just discovered him. Contrary to a recent tendency to locate the poet in a new setting—less literary and cultural, more urban and utilitarian—this Minimal Anthology proposes the discovery or rediscovery of Fernando Pessoa through some of the twentieth century’s most astonishing poems: from «Maritime Ode» to «Tobacco Shop,» moving through «Slanting Rain,« «The Monster,» «The Keeper of Flocks,» «Opiary,» «Autopsychography,» and many lesser‑known poems, all of them revealing a genius that continues to elicit shock, delight, and admiration.
The essential poetry of Fernando Pessoa and his principal heteronyms, in an edition by Jerónimo Pizarro.
