This is the only integral collection of Pessoa's Caeiro heteronym in English, and the poems are accompanied by the introductions of Ricardo Reis and a memoir by Alvaro de Campos, two of Pessoa's other major poetic heteronyms, as well as a poem dedicated to Caeiro by Coelho Pacheco, believed by many commentators to be another one-off heteronym.

Ricardo Reis says: "Alberto Caeiro da Silva was born in Lisbon on April 16, 1889, and died of tuberculosis in the same city on (. . .), 1915. He spent nearly all his life in a village in Ribatejo, and only returned to the city of his birth in his final months. In Ribatejo he wrote nearly all his poems . . ." Fernando Pessoa was educated in English in Durban, as the stepson of a Portuguese diplomat, and was completely bilingual. During his lifetime he was to publish only one collection of his poems in Portuguese, although many appeared in literary journals, under a number of alter egos, or heteronyms, chief amongst them Alberto Caeiro, Alvaro de Campos and Ricardo Reis. At his death in 1935, Pessoa left more than 20,000 manuscripts - poetry and prose - in a large trunk, the contents of which are still being transcribed and deciphered to this day. He is the greatest modern poet in the Portuguese language, but always considered himself a poet in the English tradition."...

    minunat.m-a lasat practic fara cuvinte.e poezie despre ceea ce este - facuta de o fiinta care stie cum sa simta ceea ce este, ceea ce se intampla, fara sa lipeasca pe asta grila comuna a occidentului, cu care ne-am deprins.pentru care lucrurile trebuie lasate sa fie ceea ce sunt.starile, sa fie ceea ce sunt.gandurile sa fie ceea ce sunt.fara a le confunda.si fara a falsa.si cu o vocea care da senzatia unei naturaleti perfecte.

    After I read this book, my whole way of thinking changed. I recommend it to anyone who thinks too much and takes everything too seriously. After reading these poems, you will realise life is much more simple than what we think.

    Em vez de viver, manda viver. Esconde o facto de não rimar, que não costuma ser problema, numa pretensa naturalidade das coisas que não são estruturadas, enquanto ao mesmo tempo parece acusar de artificialidade os poetas que rimam. Estes poemas só o são pela mancha textual, podiam perfeitamente ser prosa que até talvez se tornariam mais claros. É um projecto poético que se contradiz ao se dizer: ao eliminar metafísicas e pedir que não se pense sobre a vida... é o que se está a fazer.

    This is an immaculate little book. Alberto Caeiro is a heteronym (imaginary poet creation) of Fernando Pessoa. If you are bored, check out the list of heteronyms and pseudonyms attributed to this great writer. These invented people are all working to smash the idea of a single authorial voice together and this was written way before you would think this sort of thing was possible. The poems are naked and gloriously mountaintop-ish and you can take it because he's a creation. I could never swallow this kind of thing straight, but why do I love it so much coming from a "poetic heteronym"??? Pessoa wrote of Caeiro, "Caeiro has one discipline, things must be felt as they are."

    *2'5*Este libro me transmitió una sensación de paz como pocos lo han hecho. Encontré poemas de lo más divertidos, pero que también contenían mucha verdad. A pesar de lo simples que puedan parecer, son poemas muy vívidos que causan sensaciones muy reales. Casi podía oler las flores, sentir el agua fría del río o el sol sobre mis hombros. Maravilloso, siempre admiro cuando una persona ama tanto la naturaleza que se siente en comunión con ella y decide cantar sobre ello. En cuanto a su no-filosofía, ese ansia de no pensar, no sufrir, ser simplemente feliz con lo que te rodea es extraordinario.

    "Porque yo soy del tamaño de lo que veoy no del tamaño de mi altura..."No sabría explicar muy bien por qué pero Pessoa tiene algo en su forma de escribir que me llega y me fascina. Es una obra muy cortita que se lee del tirón, en la cual expone principalmente la existencia de los seres humanos desde su naturaleza más simple y primitiva.Transmite paz mientras lo lees. Totalmente recomendado para aquellos que tienden a pensar demasiado o que sienten la necesidad de ir más allá... Impecable

    Jedno od onih velikih književnih djela pred kojima se osjećam skrušeno... Svaki stih me prekorio za sve banalosti i trivijalnosti svakodnevnice kojima se prepuštam... Koliko smo mali i smiješni sa svojim ubraziljama lične grandioznosti, egocentričnošću i narcizmom... Stojimo pred zadivljućom Prirodom a vidimo samo sebe i svoje patetike... Nismo naučili od drveta i cvijeta i Sunca da je važno da se bude. Da se bude. "Ja jesam".

    ها هنا شاعرٌ فيلسوف بالدرجة الأولى. إلا أن فلسفته جميلة ومتماسكة للغاية.ثمة ما يكفي من الجمال في وجودنا هنا لافي مكان آخر.إن كان علينا أن نصل إلى هناك، سنعرف ذلك عندما نصل.*لا أحلام ولا هواجس ولا عواطف ولا ذكرى ولا حتى رؤية جمالية، فقط الواقعية المفرطة والموضوعية في لون العشب الأخضر والمطر والجبل وضوء النافذة البعيد في المنزل الواقع فوق التل.مُر أيها العصفور، مُر، وعلّمني كيف أمُر.*

    It was a pleasure to read Pessoa's first heteronym. His objectivism, his naturalistic pantheism and his anti-metaphysical posture lead to such interesting, profound poems. In short, I truly enjoyed his poetry and I look forward to reading other heteronyms apart from "o guardador de rebanhos".
