KIRKUS REVIEW

Zenith's informative introduction helps sort out the difficulties with the work by Portugal's great modernist poet, and arranges these mostly untranslated poems by the fictive ""heteronyms"" Pessoa (1888-1935) created-his alter-egos for assuming diverse poetic identities, from the classical odes of Ricardo Reis to the neo-pagan expansive and Whitmanic verse of Alvaro de Campos.
