Soares uses common, everyday events and observations — and indeed, it is hard to imagine a dseasosiego more common and everyday than Soares — to reflect and write on a myriad of subjects, including life, art, literature, writing, religion, politics, history, social relationships — the list could go on and on. Pessoa wallows in misery like a pig in shit.

I think of Salinger in that degree, who began to feel strongly that being published was an unwelcome intrusion and distraction imposed upon the work itself.

A work that could polarise some readers I suspect. An even larger, lingering debate is why anyone is even bothering…. This is what this book is about and sometimes more.

I have no idea what the symbolist tradition was, but it sounded desazosiego, so that’s as good a fernandl as any to look into something when it comes up. Future editors, as obsessed as they are with completionism, included more than the author intended sometimes depending on the version. No me cabe duda que Pessoa es un buen poeta y definitivamente lo prefiero como poeta. The quality of the actual language is good.


For then, for them, Tiny incidents Are imbued with Great significance.

Some people should just stick to 50 shades of grey and leave the big boys to those e. There fernanod passages from my own writing that chill me with fright, so distinctly do I feel them as people, so sharply outlined do they appear against the walls of my room, at night, in shadows View all 3 comments. This book is something else.

As you can imagine, then, this leaves the reading experience as a challenge to say the least, but a deeply rewarding one for the dedicated lover of experimentalism who can stick with it for the entire thing, as Pessoa weaves together observation with introspection, served with a healthy dose of cutting-edge style; and it’s for sure destined to eventually become just as much a landmark of Early Modernist experimentation as T.

Published by Seix Barral first published Whatever you call it, it purports to be a philosophy made by a melancholy person for melancholy people, to the extent that there is any concern for others at all.

The Book of Disquiet should be read slowly and thoughtfully, savored and sipped like fine wine. I also wrote a story fernanso I placed in comment 1 in the thread. He has a fascination for changes in the weather.

And Book of Disquiet is just a part of those findings. I demand nothing more from life than to be a spectator of it. Nov 23, K. Partially because it has taken some time to collect the individual sections which make up the work and partially because Pessoa’s handwriting was borderline unintelligible.

Prepossessing Fernndo It’s hard to say how much readers are expected to distance themselves from the ostensible authors or their philosophy. You hesitate to talk to him. Rousseau possessed, in equal measure, the intelligence of a creator and the sensibility of a slave. What you get would depend on what you would want to receive from it. April – The Book of Disquiet 7 27 Apr 18, Pessoa, for instance, chose to operate mostly under a set of “heteronyms,” which is really just a fancy term for “pen names.

What subjects does Soares ponder as we make our way through this book? Unless if you love stuff like this, it is a pessla for me. Quite against my wishes, what I feel is felt in order for me to write it down. I never forget what I feel. He provides us with some brilliant and awe-inspiring insights which force the reader to stop reading and ponder for a while.

Quotes from Libro del desasos Soares is conservative, socially isolated, somewhat melancholic, superficially unremarkable; he uses his journal to expand his life and world into the life of the imagination, ever plumbing the recesses of his own responses and reactions.
