Pessoa is among the modernist giants in whose shadows we live, and who made our century one of extraordinary poetic richness.—Octavio Paz

FERNANDO PESSOA was born in Lisbon in 1888. As a young man, he dropped out of university and made his living by translating, writing in avant-garde reviews, and drafting business letters in English and French. He began publishing criticism in 1912, creative prose in 1913, and poetry in 1914. He published his works under a variety of alter egos he called heteronyms—Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis, and Álvaro de Campos, and nearly seventy others. He died in Lisbon, in 1935.
