Ah...Pessoa

Posted to WritersAndGenres




I've been reading Pessoa since my teens and always found him fascinating. He's been influential in my writing and specially his heteronym Álvaro de Campos. Here you can really see the "Modernist" part of his poetry very much influenced by the Italian Futurists and the writings of Marinetti.

There are some translated poems in here:
