"Readers with a particular interest in modernism will find this work indispensable."—Publishers Weekly

"Pessoa's amazing personality is as beguiling and mysterious as his unique poetic output."—William Boyd

A self-deprecating reflection on the sheer distance between the loftiness of feelings and the humdrum reality of life, The Book of Disquiet is a classic of existentialist literature.

Fernando Pessoa, one of the founders of modernism, was born in Lisbon in 1888. Most of Pessoa's writing was not published during his lifetime: The Book of Disquiet was first published in Portugal in 1982.
