After looking for him in the poems, we search for him in the prose. The pursuit of the Other in Pessoas work is never-ending, writes Edwin Honig. Essential to understanding the great Portuguese poet are the essays written about (and by) his heteronymsAlberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis, and Alvaro de Camposthe several pseudonyms under which he wrote an extraordinary body of poetry. In Always Astonished, Pessoa and his several selves debate and discuss one anothers work, revealing how Portuguese modernism was shaped. Fernando Pessoa is one of the great voices of twentieth-century literature, and these manifestos, letters, journal notes, and critical essays range through aesthetics, lyric poetry, dramatic and visual arts, and the psychology of the artist. He gives us, too, a singularly heterodox political position in his strange work of fiction, The Anarchist Banker.
