Fernando Pessoa

About This Episode

On Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa and the playful freedom of creating as someone else — someone distinct, and unique, but non-existent. (Pessoa wrote under hundreds of names, all of which belonged to people he called "heteronyms," or "non-existent acquaintances." He's an extraordinary example of something actually quite common in literature.)

Music by Chris Zabriskie, Lee Rosevere, Kai Engel, The New Valleys, Richard Moss.
