ePub Fernando Pessoa and nineteenth-century Anglo-American literature ePub

by George Monteiro

Both in his own poetry and the poetry he attributed to his "other identities", the great modernist poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) was strongly influenced by his reading of nineteenth-century British and American writers. Without resorting to jargon or special language, George Monteiro has written the first book to analyze Pessoa's intertextual links to his English-language predecessors.From Wordsworth, Ruskin, and Robert Browning, Pessoa drew ideas that helped shape his thinking about poetry. In some poems he borrowed Walt Whitman's larger-than-life pose; in others he responded to specific works by Edgar Allan Poe. The minister in Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter inspired one of the major voices of Alvaro de Campos.
