Download e-book for kindle: Adverse Genres in Fernando Pessoa by K. David Jackson

By K. David Jackson

Poet, short-story author, feverish inventor--Fernando Pessoa used to be essentially the most leading edge figures shaping ecu modernism. recognized for a repertoire of works penned by way of a number of invented authors--which he termed heteronyms--the Portuguese author gleefully subverted the suggestion of what it capacity to be an writer. Adverse Genres in Fernando Pessoa offers an creation to the fiction and the "profusion of selves" that populates the enigmatic author's uniquely imagined oeuvre.

To consultant readers in the course of the eclectic paintings formed through Pessoa's heteronyms, okay. David Jackson advances the assumption of "adverse genres" revealing style clashes to be basic to the author's paradoxical and contradictory corpus. during the invented "coterie of authors," Pessoa inverted the standard relationships among shape and content material, authorship and textual content. In an encouraged, paradoxical, and now and then absurd blending of cultural referents, Pessoa chosen genres from the ecu culture (Ricardo Reis's Horatian odes, Álvaro de Campos's worship of Walt Whitman, Alberto Caeiro's pastoral and metaphysical verse, and Bernardo Soares's philosophical diary), into which he inserted incongruent modern rules. by way of growing a number of layers of authorial anomaly Pessoa breathes the power of modernism into conventional old genres, extending their expressive variety.

Through examinations of "A Very unique Dinner," the "Cancioneiro," love letters to Ophelia Queirós, "The event of the Anarchist Banker," Pessoa's selection of quatrains derived from Portuguese renowned verse, the ebook of Disquietude, and the most important poetic heteronyms, Jackson enters the orbit of the artist who exchanged an ordinary existence for a global of the imagination.
