Fernando Pessoa, “English Poems”


The first works of Fernando Pessoa, one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century


Antinous is a lengthy poem of 360 lines dated 1915, which describes the Emperor Hadrian weeping over the drowned body of his beloved Antinous and vowing to make the boy into a god so that the memory of their love will be a source of inspiration to future generations. The 35 Sonnets are a series of meditations on life and the meaning, or lack of meaning, of things, written in archaic language with a convoluted word order and much use of repetition and word play, which clearly owes a great deal to the Elizabethan and metaphysical poets.


Fernando António Nogueira Pessoa (1888-1935) was a Portuguese poet, described as one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets in the Portuguese language. Pessoa wrote in Portuguese, English, and French. Although he also published poems under his own name, Pessoa employed more than 70 heteronyms, some of which were only discovered in the early 21st century.
