Fernando Pessoa's Political Writings (1905-1935)

Fernando Pessoa's Political Writings (1905-1935)

Three volumes of Pessoa's writings on the subjects of i) Portugal, ii) "Political sociology", and iii) the 1st Portuguese Republic were published in the late seventies, early eighties under the direction of historian of culture Joel Serrão (1919-2008). Nevertheless, several new political writings have since been discovered and published and many other political manuscripts are still unknown to the public. Moreover, a new collection of Pessoa's specifically political writings would be needed, with a new selection, chronological presentation and a new appraisal of his political thought, namely in the light of the biographical studies and several other essays that have been published since the eighties. I have already published several papers or articles on related matters, the latest one being "Salazar and the New State in Fernando Pessoa's Writings", an article to be published in June 2008 in the British review Portuguese Studies. Next step, I intend to publish a book of Pessoa's collected political writings from 1926-1935.

Objectivos: 
This project was initiated in 2006 and aims at 1) collecting known or still unknown political writings fro Pessoa, 2) transcribing them if necessary from manuscript (including some writings that have already been published posthumously but need a new reading), 3) dating them, 4) editing them, 5) making them wholly or partially available to the public by several means, including print and (possibly) on-line edition, and 6) making the necessary research to produce essays on this and related subject matters.
