So fucking what, you piece of shit? I read him in Portuguese and believe me, apart from the poetry (loltranslatingpoetry) you can easily read The Book of Disquiet in English and still get a lot out of it. Stop being a typical monolingual American who justifies only reading shitty novels due to this fact.

>>7336010 thats what I'm trying to say but /lit/ retards like you and >>7335959 can't get a simple message
I've posted writers /lit/ talks about and all are translations, but when someone post about reading pynchon/joyce/dfw in any language other than english you can aways count with someone shitting the thread
>>7335959 >mfw another brazilian with underdog complex starts saying shit near me
Pessoa's rhythm and wordplay are essential for full enjoyment of his works, you do know literature isn't just about the message, don't you? Holy shit, this is why I hate brazilians on the internet, you can barely hide your self-loathing
literally none of these anon who shitpost this meme on /lit/ know ancient greek. they are all translationfags who read the greeks in translation just like everyone else. they read poetry in translation because they read the odyssey in translation. this is all just bait shit. don't allow yourself to get rustled over easy baits.
