Admission: 
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members

Join poets Patricio Ferrari, John Keene, Vijay Seshadri, and Mónica de la Torre for a re-examination of Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), the seminal Portuguese poet who wrote in the guise of a myriad of personae with distinct biographies and aesthetics. Upon the release of a new translation of The Book of Disquiet—his fragmentary “factless autobiography”—panelists discuss Pessoa’s inventive rejection of a singular authentic authorial voice and its legacy for contemporary poetry.
