Synopsis: Faust is a legendary human being seeking for a knowledge that’s possibly unattainable. Now, Pessoa’s Fausto – a central part of the author’s dramatic production – may be understood in a number of different ways: is it an unfinished drama in five acts, or an endless non-linear work?

This new edition, the first one to be published with critical apparatus, frees Fausto from the desire for an unachieved unity, and the work resurfaces as a “new” book of poems about the endless pursuit of knowledge and its abysses.
