Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Fernando Pessoa (1888 - 1935)

  • About
  • FERNANDO PESSOA (1888-1935), Portugal's greatest poet since Camões, is one of Europe's greatest poets too. When he died he left a trunk full of poetry, philosophical writings, criticism and other texts. There are 25,426 items in the archive, including those that constitute The Book of Disquietude.

    Carcanet was the first English-language publisher of Fernando Pessoa in 1971. In 1992 Carcanet published Richard Zenith's translation of The Book of Disquietude.
