Alfredo Cortez Gladiadores and Horto Fechado e Outros Poemas. Vitorino Nemésio (in French) l. a. Voyelle Promise. Teixeira Gomes Novelas Eróticas. Carlos Queirós Desaparecido Pessoa elderly forty four½ – forty seven½ IN 1933, PESSOA WENT via a major interval of melancholy yet produced quite a few poems, regularly in his personal identify, lots of which seemed in Presença, together with ‘Autopsiographia’, the briefest and so much penetrating of reflections at the poet’s craft. In Presença seemed such celebrated poems as ‘Autopsiographia’. In 1933, Presença released the awesome ‘Tabacaria’ [Tobacco store] via Álvaro de Campos (chastened because the Whitmanesque days of the ‘Triumphal Ode’, the ‘Maritime Ode’, and the ‘Ultimatum’). not like Caeiro and Reis who had died – the only in 1915, the opposite in 1919 (though each one released ‘posthumously’) – Campos lived so long as Pessoa. while ‘Fernando Pessoa’ endured with highbrow experiments and adventures, Campos more and more turned oppressed via the absurdity and agony of all of it; in ‘Tabacaria’ he sounded definitely existentialist. In 1933 additionally Pessoa wrote an creation to Augusto Ferreira Gomes’ O Quinto Império. Pessoa shared with its writer a wierd type of Portuguese patriotism – Sebastianism – which has continued via Portuguese historical past. Sebastianism is a kind of the second one Coming – yet secular, neighborhood, specific. while overall catastrophe overtakes a pacesetter of whom a lot is was hoping, disbelief generates legends of survival, of resurrection; ultimately, with the passage of time, prophecies come up that he'll come back and judgement will persist with: these now proud may be abased, these now suppressed exalted, and a greater order of items restored. Such used to be the essence of Sebastianism. The British at the very least may still realize it: King Arthur used to be their Sebastian, their ‘once and destiny king’. Arthur disappeared in conflict, best the romanized Britons opposed to barbarous Germanic invaders; so Sebastian disappeared within the carnage of Alcacer-Quibir, prime the final campaign opposed to the Moors. Hopes, then myths, of the misplaced leaders consoled suppressed peoples: in mediaeval instances, Arthur – now surrounded with knights – turned the lodge of the Celtic mind's eye in the course of English profession; Sebastianism took root throughout the ‘Babylonian Captivity’ of Portugal via Spain and grew in the course of the succeeding centuries of Portugal’s relative decline in Europe. Then Arthurian pictures and rhetoric all of sudden revived in Victorian instances, animating public – and public college – existence: to the British were assigned a unique Imperial undertaking below God, a chivalrous, civilizing ‘dominion over palm and pine’. Sebastianism remained fastened on a remoter destiny. It assigned to the Portuguese a unique venture – an echo of the good days of the Discoveries – because the normal connection among the races of the realm; those could sign up for ultimately in foreign brotherhood. The idealists of Sebastianism, like Pessoa, seemed towards a 5th Empire that used to be no longer a cosmopolitan empire by way of conquest or monetary dominance, yet a Portugueseinspired Camelot of prepared minds and spirits.
