Celebrated by the UK newspaper The Guardian as one of its top 100 books of all time, Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa’s Book of Disquiet has become celebrated as a modernist classic far beyond the borders of Portugal and the Lusophone world. Translating the work into English and adapting it for the stage provokes questions for theatre-makers as well as translators that serve to underscore the temporality and location of the source text in new and interesting ways.
