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 was once probably the most cutting edge figures shaping eu modernism. identified for a repertoire of works penned by way of a number of invented authors--which he termed heteronyms--the Portuguese author gleefully subverted the thought of what it capability to be an writer. Adverse Genres in Fernando Pessoa offers an advent to the fiction and the "profusion of selves" that populates the enigmatic author's uniquely imagined oeuvre.

To advisor readers in the course of the eclectic paintings formed by means of Pessoa's heteronyms, ok. David Jackson advances the assumption of "adverse genres" revealing style clashes to be primary to the author's paradoxical and contradictory corpus. in the course of the invented "coterie of authors," Pessoa inverted the standard relationships among shape and content material, authorship and textual content. In an encouraged, paradoxical, and every now and then absurd blending of cultural referents, Pessoa chosen genres from the eu 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 means of developing a number of layers of authorial anomaly Pessoa breathes the power of modernism into conventional old genres, extending their expressive range.

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