Biography:

Fernando Pessoa was born in Lisbon in 1888 and died there in 1935. His father having died when he was five, he was brought up and educated in Durban; some of his early poems were written in English. Returning to Lisbon aged seventeen, he earned a meagre living translating commercial correspondence from English and French. Many of his poems were published in literary reviews, but the only book he published in his lifetime was a volume of poems on patriotic themes, which won only a consolation prize in a national competition.
