Literary Fields Forever Playing with the Book of Disquiet
Main Article Content
The LdoD Archive: Collaborative Archive of the Book of Disquiet was published on the web in December 2017. Over the past four years we have organized many workshops in different settings, aimed at encouraging appropriations of the reading, editing, and writing functionalities of the platform. The virtual editing tools, in particular, have been a major source of experiments. These include, for instance, annotated editions, personal anthologies, staged readings, performance pieces, scriptwriting for video, virtual editions based on social media, and automatically generated editions. Through interfaces designed for exploring the multiple facets of Fernando Pessoa’s Book of Disquiet, the role-playing principle of the system has been adopted in creative and critical activities that bring the text into diverse environments. This article describes these resituated and playful textual practices as a living model of the literary field.
