The reception of "Livro do Desassossego", by Fernando Pessoa (Bernardo Soares)

Livro do Desassossego, by Fernando Pessoa (Bernardo Soares), has known a wide dissemination on a national and international level from the 80’s on. The repercussion of this work, which was partially unpublished until the death of the author, will be studied in the literature, arts and criticism domains, hoping to promote the critical and theoretical reflection around one of the most important works published over the XX century in Portugal. Taking place in December 2012, an International Conference focused the reception of Livro do Desassossego and it will be edited, in 2013, a collective volume of original essays on the same theme. Young Master and PhD students studying Fernando Pessoa participate in the discussions and preliminary meetings of both the book and International Conference.
