The Book of Disquiet

Fernando Pessoa

About the book

Proust's Paris, Kafka's Prague, Joyce's Dublin, and: Pessoa's Lisbon. The Book of Disquiet is the Portuguese modernist Fernando Pessoa’s greatest literary achievement. An “autobiography” or “diary” containing exquisite melancholy observations, aphorisms, and ruminations, this work grapples with all the eternal questions and captures Lisbon's vibes for eternity. 

This existential masterpiece was first published in Portuguese in 1982, forty-seven years after Pessoa’s death. It was more like the discovery of a new continent than just a monumental literary event,
