The Book of Disquiet
The Complete Edition
Fernando Pessoa, Margaret Jull Costa
Written over the course of Fernando Pessoa's life, The Book of Disquiet was first published in 1982, pieced together from the thousands of individual manuscript pages left behind after his death in 1935. Now this fragmentary modernist masterpiece appears in a major new edition that unites Margaret Jull Costa's celebrated translation with previously missing texts, presented for the first time in order of composition and accompanied by facsimiles of the original manuscript. A mosaic of dreams and a hymn to the streets and cafés of 1930s Lisbon, The Book of Disquiet is an extraordinary record of the inner life of one of the century's most important writers.
