The presented project intends to investigate certain aspects of semiheteronymy in the Book of Disquiet. From the edition of Richard Zenith (2011), which attributes the book to Bernardo Soares, and from the edition of Teresa Rita Lopes (2015), which divides the authorship into three (Vicente Guedes, Barão de Live, and Bernardo Soares), the project it intends to question the semiheteronymy and, through it, to understand the author's depersonalization in the construction of the work. The author's and the critic's definitions of semiheteronymy will be articulated in topics with textual elements of the work under analysis and with orthonymous prose, as well as the denial of authorship as opposed to the statement of semi-authorship. A plausible hypothesis for reading this book is that it is a kind of catalyzer of the personal work and an approach of the central author of all this work. The critical-theoretical basis is composed by the books: Fernando Pessoa: Rei da nossa Baviera (LOURENÇO, 2008); Fernando Pessoa: Uma quase autobiografia (FILHO, 2012); Fernando Pessoa: Entre Almas e Estrelas (OSAKABE, 2013) and; O Re-Nascimento do Autor: Autoria, Heteronímia e Fake Memoirs (GAGLIARDI, 2019).(AU)
