*  *  *

Published on Monday, November 26, 2012 by Marie Pellen

Summary

Fernando Pessoa's British education left long-lasting traces in his writings, particularly (but not exclusively) in his English texts. The aim of this issue is to study the pivotal role that the English language and literary tradition played in Pessoa's production throughout his life. In order to achieve this, we propose a volume traversing a wide range of topics bridging the author's Archive and Private Library.  Portuguese Literary & Cultural Studies is a multilingual interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that addresses the literatures and cultures of the diverse communities of the Portuguese-speaking world in terms of critical and theoretical approaches.
