The Book of Disquiet PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Book of Disquiet free pdf This is a prize-winning international classic, first published in English by 'Serpent's Tail' in 1993. Sitting at his desk, Bernardo Soares imagined himself free forever of Rua dos Douradores, of his boss Vasques, of Moreira the book-keeper, of all the other employees, the errand boy, the post boy, even the cat. But if he left them all tomorrow and discarded the suit of clothes he wears, what else would he do? Because he would have to do something. And what suit would he wear? Because he would have to wear another suit. A self-deprecating reflection on the sheer distance between the loftiness of his feelings and the humdrum reality of his life, "The Book of Disquiet" is a classic of existentialist literature.

About Fernando Pessoa

Fernando Pessoa, one of the founders of modernism, was born in Lisbon in 1888. He grew up in Durban, South Africa, where his stepfather was Portuguese consul. He returned to Lisbon in 1905 and worked as a clerk in an import-export company until his death in 1935. Most of Pessoa's writing was not published during his lifetime- The Book of Disquiet first came out in Portugal in 1982. Since its first publication, it has been hailed as a classic.
