Fernando Pessoa e os inquéritos literários

Description

Abstract:
Fernando Pessoa foi, primeiro como crítico e, depois, como poeta com obra publicada, repetidamente solicitado para responder a “inquéritos literários”, geralmente promovidos por jornais e revistas junto dos escritores portugueses, uma moda importada de França, onde essa prática se tinha iniciado com grande êxito no final do século XIX. Este artigo apresenta uma resenha cronológica dos inquéritos submetidos a Pessoa ao longo de duas décadas e do modo como ele lhes correspondeu. Tal como aconteceu com muitos dos seus projectos editoriais, as suas respostas a inquéritos permaneceram frequentemente inacabadas ou apenas esboçadas, como atestam os materiais do seu espólio. Transcrevem-se aqui duas suas respostas inéditas a inquéritos, uma delas em três versões inacabadas, outra completa, mas abandonada a favor da resposta realmente publicada na imprensa.
Fernando Pessoa was, first as a critic and then as a poet with published work, repeatedly asked to respond to “literary inquiries”, usually promoted by newspapers and magazines among Portuguese writers, a fashion imported from France, where this practice had started with great success in the late nineteenth century. This article presents a chronological overview of the surveys submitted to Pessoa over two decades and the way he responded to them. As with many of his editorial projects, his responses to surveys often remained unfinished or sketchy, as evidenced by the materials in his estate. Two of his unpublished responses to literary surveys are transcribed here, one of them in three unfinished versions, the other complete, but abandoned in favor of the response that was actually published in the press.
