As readers, we spend our lives trying to see the world from other perspectives. We seek to feel as others feel, as they have felt—all of those people across time and place whom our own lives will never allow us to meet.
One year ago when we decided to devote a website to reading and literature, we turned to the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa for guidance and a name.
Over the past week, we’ve been enjoying our morning coffee at the poet’s hangout, Café a Brasileira, and reading his work while we enjoy Lisbon, where he was born in 1888 and died in 1935. Join us in following him and his legacy around the city.
