Friday Feature Photo: The Prolific Portuguese Poet

Friday Feature Photo: The Prolific Portuguese Poet

Fernando Pessoa

PhotographerPedro Ribeiro Simões

Capture Date: March 30, 2015

Location: Lisbon, Portugal

About: The famed Portuguese poet and writer, Fernando Pessoa (1888–1935) , was respected not only for the quality and breadth of his work, but for the work of his 75 alter egos. Rather than call them pseudonyms, because he didn’t feel it captured their true independent intellectual life, he called them heteronyms. These imaginary figures sometimes held unpopular or extreme views, and would often interact with one another.
