Fernando Pessoa’s Archive houses innumerous papers that were never integrated in
books, but were in most cases conceived with this purpose. This is also the case of the Book of Disquiet, where an apparent disorder of the materials left by the poet contrasts with a persistent structuring idea of book. Beyond the texts explicitly conceived as part of the book, several editorial lists show the presence of an idea of edition constantly changed and delayed. These lists, among which one should distinguish between lists of editorial projects and structuring plans of the book, not only follow a practical purpose, but also give a meaning and a position to it within the work as a whole. The analysis of this corpus allows for the charting of the history of this planning, showing how the conception of the Book depends on it.
