isto, PESSOA (1888-1935). Poet, writer, critic and translator, one of the most significant literary figures of the XX century. 'Pessoa-himself' is not the 'real' PESSOA. Like Caeiro, Reis and Campos, he embodies only aspects of the poet's personality. The poetry of the orthonymic PESSOA possesses a measured, regular form and appreciation of the musicality of verse. It takes on intellectual issues, and it is marked by concern with dreams, imagination and mystery.
