Abstract
A group of six otherwise disparate items presenting personal critical perceptions, ideas or speculations concerning Pessoa and his work involving the composer Schumann; his particular use of heteronyms; his discovery of the notion of “man thinking” as the basis for his “drama em gente”; 'Livro do Desassossego'; and evidence to suggest that it is useful to consider him as belonging on the autism spectrum.
Um conjunto de seis questões aparentemente desconexas permitem apresentar algumas percepções críticas, ideias ou especulações implicando Pessoa e a sua obra, e envolvendo o compositor Schumann, o recurso particular aos heterónimos, a descoberta da noção de “pensamento humano” como esteio do “drama em gente”, o 'Livro do Desassossego' e, por último, a sugestão de que poderá ser útil ter em conta a possibilidade de considerar Pessoa dentro do âmbito do autismo.
