One of the most original qualities of Pessoa is that he was at the same time a nationalist and a cosmopolitan. Although he chose to be Portuguese, his trilingualism, his youthful travels, and his immense erudition endowed him with exceptional intercultural skills, which expressed themselves both in his projects to transform Lisbon into a European cultural center meant to replace Paris, and in his literary work, which constantly engages in dialogues with works of world literature. As a corollary to this: If Pessoa devotes much attention to the saudade, an emotion of nostalgia that plays a fundamental role in Portugal’s cultural and national identification projects at his time, he also develops in his works a “new” emotion that we can call “cosmopolitan”— namely, the desassossego (disquiet), that seems to be intrinsic to Pessoa’s cosmopolitan and intercultural projects, and particularly to the literary movement of sensationism.
