This is the largest and richest volume of poetry by Pessoa available in English. It includes generous selections from the three poetic alter egos that the Portuguese writer dubbed "heteronyms" - Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis and Alvaro de Campos - and from the vast and varied work he wrote under his own name.

Álvaro de Campos, Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis - Fernando Pessoa, der größte Dichter Portugals des 20. Jahrhunderts, träumte immer davon, alle Menschen zugleich zu sein. In seinem Werk hat er sich diese Sehnsucht erfüllt: unablässig erschuf er neue Dichter, schenkte ihnen eine Biographie und schrieb ihnen die unterschiedlichsten Werke zu. Die legendäre Truhe, in der man Pessoas Manuskripte lang nach seinem Tod fand, enthält so das größte Stimmentheater der Weltliteratur, dessen Partitur die neue Pessoa-Ausgabe Band für Band enthüllt. Álvaro Coelho de Athayade ist der 20. Baron von Teive und der einzige Selbstmörder im Werk Pessoas. Seine persönliche Chronik ist eine Sammlung negativer Lebenslektionen, und voll Schmerz muss er erkennen, dass er die Bücher, die er schreiben wollte, nicht schreiben kann. Der Text des Halbheteronyms ist eine wichtige Ergänzung zum »Buch der Unruhe«: »Träumen ist besser als sein. Im Traum gelingt alles so mühelos!«

This book is about the impact of literature upon cities world-wide, and cities upon literature. It examines why the city matters so much to contemporary critical theory, and why it has inspired so many forms of writing which have attempted to deal with its challenges to think about it and to represent it. Gathering together 40 contributors who look at different modes of writing and film-making in throughout the world, this handbook asks how the modern city has engendered so much theoretical consideration, and looks at cities and their literature from China to Peru, from New York to Paris, from London to Kinshasa. It looks at some of the ways in which modern cities – whether capitals, shanty-towns, industrial or ‘rust-belt’ – have forced themselves on people’s ways of thinking and writing.

Winner of the California Book Award Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist for the National Book Award Beautiful and absorbing.” New York Times An Unnecessary Woman is a breathtaking portrait of one reclusive woman’s late-life crisis, which garnered a wave of rave reviews and love letters to Alameddine’s cranky yet charming septuagenarian protagonist, Aaliya, a character you can’t help but love” (NPR). Aaliya’s insightful musings on literature, philosophy, and art are invaded by memories of the Lebanese Civil War and her volatile past. As she tries to overcome her aging body and spontaneous emotional upwellings, Aaliya is faced with an unthinkable disaster that threatens to shatter the little life she has left. Here, the gifted Rabih Alameddine has given us a nuanced rendering of one woman's life in the Middle East and an enduring ode to literature and its power to define who we are. A paean to the transformative power of reading, to the intellectual asylum from one’s circumstances found in the life of the mind.” LA Review of Books [The novel] throbs with energy [Aaliya’s] inventive way with words gives unfailing pleasure, no matter how dark the events she describes, how painful the emotions she reveals.” Washington Post

With its astounding hardcover reviews Richard Zenith's new complete translation of THE BOOK OF DISQUIET has now taken on a similar iconic status to ULYSSES, THE TRIAL or IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME as one of the greatest but also strangest modernist texts. An assembly of sometimes linked fragments, it is a mesmerising, haunting 'novel' without parallel in any other culture.

Eine Liebeserklärung an die Sinnlichkeit des Briefeschreibens Bilodo, ein junger Postbote aus Montreal mit einer Vorliebe für Kalligraphie, geht seinem Beruf voller Leidenschaft nach: Heimlich öffnet er abends über Wasserdampf handgeschriebene Briefe und träumt sich in fremde Lebenswelten. Eines Tages stößt er auf die ungewöhnliche Korrespondenz zwischen Professor Grandpré und Ségolène, einer Lehrerin aus Guadeloupe, die sich Gedichte schicken. Bilodo verliebt sich in Ségolène. Als Grandpré bei einem Verkehrsunfall ums Leben kommt, ersinnt Bilodo einen waghalsigen Plan: Will er den Kontakt zu Ségolène nicht abreißen lassen, muss er in die Identität des anderen schlüpfen und lernen, wie man mit siebzehn Silben die Ewigkeit einfängt ...
