All it basically is is a stream of poetic and philosophical quotes that may or may not create a story.

I have walked away from books in hatred before. Authors are able to enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal’s published version of the work e.

Not even a hint of a narrative in the writing. From time to time Pessoa turns a sharp phrase. There’s a degree of inconstancy in thought and personality which bears an examination.

Pessoa definitely has his own rhythm, his own voice. In another short, one should dfl content to work for the purpose of the work itself.

Fragments on their own, can be enjoyed but if you read several of these fragments you realise what desassosseggo one trick pony this book really is and that it’s really not as “deep” as it first seems. So, I made it as far as pagebut I couldn’t do it.

I can’t flip through a hundred pages of poetry. The book has seen publication in SpanishGermanItalianFrenchand English His typical Portuguese religiosity was not a dominant feature but still felt unnecessary.


Too often, the book slipped from healthy self-deprecation to self-loathing. It’s a desasskssego I find really interesting and am glad to know about and have on my shelf.

What is this Livro do Desassossego? Lind, Georg Rudolf It is sometimes said that the four greatest Portuguese poets of modern times are Fernando Pessoa. Seems Pessoa was famous for inventing different desadsossego, then writing poetry to match their unique personalities. You don’t get the kind of praise many of my Goodreads friends heaped upon his work by being a bad writer.

Desassossego – Libro

I just got sick of reading about the author’s view of himself as being, essentially, the coolest person in the world because he took an interest in nothing excepting art – though I found his definition of art so poorly-constructed as to subvert his own arguments, if they can be called that, about aesthetics.

These great existentialist authors should put their pens down more often, build meaningful relationships, and make the happiness of others their reason to exist.


No me cabe duda que Pessoa es un buen poeta y definitivamente lo prefiero como poeta. Like far too many brilliant artists, the author struggles with the meaning of his existence in a bubble of his own making.
