The Book of Disquiet

by Fernando Pessoa

Dates
Thursday 3 June 2010 - Saturday 5 June 2010

Listed as one of The Guardian’s top 100 books of all time, Fernando Pessoa’s The Book of Disquiet was discovered in a trunk in his apartment in Lisbon after his death in 1935. Part novel, part memoir, part philosophical meditation on the futility of living, Pessoa’s Livro defies definition and endures as a testament to modernist writing.

Have you ever thought how invisible we really are to one another?
How little we really know about each other?
We look but do we really see?
We listen but what we hear is our own voice inside.
