Title: As irmãs de Fernando Pessoa
Issue Date: 2023
Abstract: In the same year that Fernando Pessoa and António Botto published the Anthology of Modern Portuguese Poems in Lisbon, Virginia Woolf published, in London, her famous book A Room of One's Own, in which Woolf reflected on what life would have been like for William Shakespeare's sister if she had existed and had revealed the same literary talent as her brother. Inspired by this speculative feminist exercise, this paper proposes that we think about what would have happened if Fernando Pessoa's three sisters (Maria Clara, Henriqueta and Madalena) had turned out to be modernist poetic geniuses like their brother. What obstacles would they have had to face? Would they have been included in Pessoa and Botto's anthology? And what consequences would their existence have for 20th century Portuguese literary and cultural history?
Description: Quando em 1929 Fernando Pessoa e António Botto editam, em Lisboa, a Antologia de Poemas Portugueses Modernos, Virginia Woolf publica, em Londres, o seu célebre livro A Room of One's Own, no qual reflete sobre como teria sido a vida da irmã de William Shakespeare caso ela tivesse existido e tivesse revelado o mesmo talento literário do irmão. Inspirada nesse exercício feminista especulativo, este artigo propõe que pensemos o que teria acontecido se as três irmãs de Fernando Pessoa (Maria Clara, Henriqueta e Madalena) se tivessem revelado, tal como o irmão, génios poéticos modernistas. Que obstáculos teriam tido de enfrentar? Seriam elas incluídas na antologia de Pessoa e Botto? E que consequências teria a sua existência para a história literária e cultural portuguesa do século XX?
