Welcome to the digital edition of Fernando Pessoa’s work!

Resulting from a collaboration between researchers of the Estranging Pessoa research project, based in IELT (Institute for the Study of Literature and Tradition), New University of Lisbon, and the CCeH (Cologne Center for eHumanities), University of Cologne, this website offers a unique access to the documents of Fernando Pessoa’s work.

The edition includes the access to the images of the original writings. This access is facilitated by a search engine and the transcription of each document, resulting from electronic text encoding, and offers to the reader the possibility of defining himself the editorial mode in which he wants to read a certain text.

The website presents the edition of Fernando Pessoa’s editorial projects, elaborated between 1913 and 1935, as well as the publications made by the author in lifetime, in periodicals, from 1912 onwards. The poetry published by the author in journals and magazines, comprising 72 publications, is fully available. The prose published by the author in periodicals and the editorial projects are beeing made available gradually, in a total of 248 projects and around 120 prose publications that should be available in spring 2021. The sign BETA indicates that the page is still under construction and will be removed when these documents are fully available.

This edition allows for the understanding of the relation between the potential nature of the work and what was actually published. Indexes of the documents, publications, genres, names, titles and periodicals enable the retracing of their chronology.

This work was financed by FCT (Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology), in the context of the Estranging Pessoa research project (PTDC/CPC-ELT/4587/2012), by IELT (financed by National Funds through FCT, UID/ELT/00657/2013) and by the CCeH. Since 2019, there is an ongoing collaboration with Universidad EAFIT.
