Campo de flores: poesias lyricas completas
Unto our very selves we are abridged When we would utter to our thought our being. We are our dreams of ourselves, souls by gleams, And each to each other dreams of others' dreams. Fernando Pessoa, early 20th-century favorite of C. Merwin, Mark Strand, and other poetic illuminaries, took the childhood game of "imaginary friends" to another level. He developed various personas to write under, and this collection from City Lights Books in San Francisco includes a few of them.

The first persona Fernando Pessoa, early 20th-century favorite of C. The first persona featured is Alberto Caeiro. Here the translators Edwin Honig and Susan M. Brown include segments from a long poem called "The Keeper of Sheep. To think of God is to disobey God Because God wanted us not to know him, And therefore did not show himself to us Let's be calm and simple, Like brooks and trees, And God will love us for it, make us Beautiful as brooks and trees, And will give us the green of his spring, And a river to got to when we are done!
After reading the at-times bleak Book of Disquiet by Pessoa, I was not expecting such a playful sense of humor, most evident in the two long poems, "Maritime Ode" a spoof on the wonders of the pirate life and "Salutation to Walt Whitman" a tongue-in-cheek salute to our--though not his--national poet. Here's a little from the "Salutation to Walt Whitman" which is addressed to Walt in the heavens: This is why I send you My leaping verses, my bounding verses, my spasmodic verses, My hysteria-attack verses, Verses that pull the cart of my nerves.
My crazy tumbling inspires me, Barely able to breathe, I get to my feet exalted, For the verses are not being able to burst from living. Open all the windows for me! Throw open all the doors! Pull the whole house up over me! I want to live freely, out in the open, I want to make gestures beyond my body, To run like the rain streaming down over walls, To be stepped on like stones down the broad streets, To sink like heavy weights to the bottom of the sea, And all this voluptuously, a feeling alien to me now!
You get the idea. Under his own name, Pessoa wrote a lot of interesting works but also a long stretch of poems dedicated to Portugal's maritime history and sea explorers in general. At the end of this text, there are a few prose snippets from Bernardo Soares, a persona already met in The Book of Disquiet.
Familiar turf, and a little sampler for readers who decided to approach Pessoa's poetry first. Overall, for me, a great way of expanding your appreciation of Pessoa's moods and abilities after reading his more famous book. He can write poetry, too, and for a homebody, his imagination and outlook on life traveled well. Sembra che il tempo si fermi per aspettare il nostro risveglio.
Quando i bambini giocano e io li sento giocare, qualcosa nell'anima mia si comincia a rallegrare. E tutta quell'infanzia che non ebbi mi giunge, sull'onda d'una allegria che non fu di nessuno. Nunca leio poesia de fio a pavio. Gostei tanto que reli todos os outros. XLVI Deste modo ou daquele modo. Procuro dizer o que sinto Sem pensar em que o sinto. Nem sempre consigo sentir o que sei que devo sentir. E assim escrevo, querendo sentir a Natureza, nem sequer como um homem, Mas como quem sente a Natureza, e mais nada. Sou o Descobridor da Natureza. Why "the book of disquiet" isn't proposed in the list?
This work is undoubtedly one of most important the XX century. Pessoa chooses the pseudonyms behind which it hides.

It is a game of hide-and-seek to protect himself. But its truth is in its poetries. He loves Lisboa, the Tagus. I spend some times in this city to research him. I drunk old porto at Basiliera coffee. I took the tram to cross the oldest part of rhe town I saw the ruins of the earthquake which shocked Voltaire so much. I hope to me Why "the book of disquiet" isn't proposed in the list? I hope to meet him in the street. Never been this captived with poetry since Baudelaire. Pessoa was a great writer without a hint of a doubt. La muerte es la curva del camino.
Si yo escucho, te oigo el paso Existiendo tal como yo existo. Nadie se compara con ellos. Un poema requiere cada inhalaci La muerte es la curva del camino. Nada soy, nada puedo, nada sigo.
Esto aparte, que es nada, bajo azur De vasto cielo un vano viento Sur Me despierta y estremece en el verdor. Overall I liked it, most of them didn't get my attention. I liked especially the ones about death, they were amazing. Alvaro de Campos is a genius amongst men. Melancholy and blue, his view on the world, or perhaps his absence from a view on the world, is unique yet universal.
Tobacco shop is, currently, one of my favourite poems. I'll always be the one who wasn't born for it I'll always simply be the one with all the promise; I'll always be the one waiting for the door to open at the wall without a door, Who sang his anthem to infinity in a chicken coop, Who heard the voice of God in a covered well. Believe in myse Alvaro de Campos is a genius amongst men. No, I don't, nor in anything, Let Nature pour down upon my burning head I am so intrigued by the idea of the personas he created to express different hims, or views that where perhaps not him at all.
If one has no inherent belief in their words, then expressing thoughts through a persona seems, to me, to be a fascinating way of being able to write in an uninhibited way. One way to overcome self doubt is through adopting a different identity. His poetry brings for me all sorts of questions relating to who we are, and how we represent the self.

Pessoa wrote that, " The whole constitution of my spirit is one of hesitancy and of doubt. Nothing is or can be positive to me; all things oscillate around me, and I wish them, an uncertainty unto myself. All for me in incoherence and change. All is mystery and all is meaning. In some way, that there is too much muchness within me, and too little muchness without. To lack a sense of self, is not in anyway to lack a sense of meaning, or so I feel this poetry tells me.
One can be unsure of everything, and yet still have certainty in their life. My introduction to Pessoa was by his letters to his lover, Ophelia. The love and the way he reflects it to his lover was so intense that he gained my admiration promptly. Then I started reading his poems and learnt the word "occult" thanks to him and used it in my essay inadvertently that my teacher who is probably my favorite person in the whole word warned me that it's an old word and I shouldn't use it.
Then we began talking about the world of poems and that was the moment I realized the inte My introduction to Pessoa was by his letters to his lover, Ophelia. Then we began talking about the world of poems and that was the moment I realized the intensity of my love to this woman and that moment made Pessoa special to me.
Too bad, I won't be able to see her again but my memories will be kept alive by him. There's something very touching about Pessoa's poems that I can't properly describe. I'm not sure if this pile of feelings is caused by me or Pessoa himself but i can assure you something drifts you away and you can't help but go along with it no matter how hard you try to go otherwise. I always loved poems and i presume that the way i feel about these is correlated with this admiration up to a point.
However, Pessoa himself is a genius and a talented artist who i strongly recommend.
Feb 21, J. The Caiero and Campos poems are quite good, sort of unaddressable really, and Pessoa's own earlier works are great, but he sort of slumped into odd mediocrity which his other splinter personalities never seemed to have experienced. Ries is included briefly, too, but he's mundane.
