Mensagem by Fernando Pessoa

"Mensagem" is a collection of 44 poems that pay homage to Portugal's heroic past, particularly its Age of Discovery. The work is divided into three parts: the first part focuses on the country's mythical origins, the second part celebrates the nation's maritime explorations and discoveries, and the third part reflects on the decline and future resurrection of Portugal. The author uses symbolic and allegorical language to convey his deep love for his homeland and his belief in its potential for greatness.
