Beautifully written. i love the way things are said. But i wouldn't buy the book, it's good, but it hasn't consumed me yet.

you wouldn't buy pessoa? I wonder why. A true master of the soul in fragmentation. His heteronyms are unrivalled and unique. Do you realise that the man worked with heteronyms. he played literary games with his readers and with himself. Another writer who played such games and teased the reader was Borges, also beckett, Nabakov, and pynchon. The Literature of exhaustion. Pessoa wrote under the heteronym of Soares. It was only in the later years that cap[italist publishers put the book out under pessoa's real name (which ironically means person).
He would not buy the book, he says...

"Pessoa wrote under the heteronym of Soares"
Also Alberto Caeiro, Alvaro de Campos, Ricardo Reis among others..

I don't know much about mysticism, but to me Pessoa writes like I would expect a mystic to think. I doubt I have ever felt a writer being closer to the subject of his thought than he is. His work makes me believe in the reality of truth.
