Yeats, Rilke, Mandelstam, Cavafy ... and Pessoa: the English-speaking world is finally beginning to acknowledge the place of Pessoa among the greatest European poets of the century. Pessoa, born in Lisbon in 1888, died in 1935. He anticipated many of the strategies of later artists by creating various 'heteronyms', and wrote separate and very different bodies of work in and under their own names, in addition to his own. Zbigniew Kotowicz's book is the first comprehensive presentation in the English-speaking world of the artistic and intellectual phenomenon known as Pessoa. The book concludes with Suzette Macedo's complete translation of the long poem, 'The Tobacconist's'.
