Although generally considered one of Portugal's greatest poets, Fernando Ant nio Nogueira Pessoa (1888-1935) published but one book in Portuguese in his lifetime. That book, Message (Portuguese Mensagem), the esoteric epic at which he labored sporadically for more than twenty years before finally publishing it in the year prior to his death, is undoubtedly essential to an understanding of Pessoa's poetic vision, yet it remains, at least in the English-speaking world, relatively unknown and unread. Mark Will, author of the epic poem Of Letters and a Man, now offers to the public a new unabridged translation of Pessoa's forgotten modernist classic, in order to reintroduce readers to a work which is as central to the Pessoan corpus as is the more celebrated, posthumously published Book of Disquiet.
