Will the real Fernando please stand up? - Ilan Stavans


Get to know the life of enigmatic poet and writer Fernando Pessoa, who wrote not as himself but as other people he invented.

On November 30th, 1935, dozens of writers passed away. They came from different backgrounds, espoused divergent beliefs, and wrote in a variety of styles. Yet almost 30,000 pages of their work was stashed in a trunk in an apartment in Lisbon, Portugal. So, what mysterious string tied all these writers together? Ilan Stavans explores the enigmatic life of Fernando Pessoa and his many identities.
