About the Author

Poet Fernando António Nogueira Pêssoa was born in Lisbon, Portugal. His father died when Pessoa was five years old, and the family moved with his mother's new husband, a consul, to Durban, South Africa, where Pessoa attended an English school. At thirteen Pessoa returned to Portugal for a year-long visit, and returned there permanently in 1905. He studied briefly at the University of Lisbon, and began to publish criticism, prose, and poetry soon thereafter while working as a commercial translator.During his life, most of Pessoa's considerable creative output appeared only in journals, and he published just three collections of poetry in English-Antinous (1918), Sonnets (1918), and English Poems (1921)-and one collection in Portuguese, Mensagem (1933).
