Although I do tend to think that pointless knowledge is one of the most beautiful things about life.
It would also be "Pessoa", not "Passoa", as I'm sure you are aware when it isn't after midnight. Perhaps one of the most fascinating of modern poets, given that he not only wrote in quite distinct styles, but invented whole alternative personalities to do such writing for him, complete with detailed biographies and complex interrelationships. Any poet who can claim to have been influenced by a fictional poet of his own invention is more than worthy of memory space on Wikipedia.

I read a book some time ago on F. Pessoa, Esq., called "The Genesis of the Heteronymns". Quite interesting, of you're into barmy poets of the 20th Century. It's by a Highlander called James Green, who did his PhD in Portugal on this type of thing, and, apparently, he "explains why these [19 different used names] are not simply pseudonyms and offers a fascinating insight into the work of a major 20th century writer". The author is distinguished principally for being my step-father, but this isn't a plug, as he hardly needs the cash. If you're interested in Pessoa, it's an interesting read.
