About this Item

1 issue. Folio (37.3 x 28.9 cm.), original illustrated self covers (very slight soiling). Wrappers and several inner leaves printed in red and black. Front wrapper has large line drawing of Esperança, by Almada Negreiros. In very good condition. 15, (1) pp. *** FIRST EDITION. This issue has brief poems by Fernando Pessoa, Mário Sá Carneiro (said to be previously unpublished), and Mário Saa, as well as essays by João Gaspar Simões, Adolfo Casais Monteiro, and José Régio. The cover illustration, a line drawing by Almada Negreiros, shows a woeful-looking Hope wearing a sailor's uniform and holding an anchor.Presenca was published in Coimbra from March 10, 1928 to November 1988 (nº 53-54). A second series, in smaller format, was printed in Lisbon, but only 2 issues appeared (November 1939 and February 1940). Complete sets are extremely rare. Presença was probably the most important Portuguese literary review of its time and one of the most important, if not the most important, of the twentieth century. António Botto commented, "A Presença oferece-nos como que uma vasta e estranha síntese literária . resultante dos destroços do simbolismo aristocrático Coimbrão, do saudosismo portuense, do paulismo e futurismo lisboetas, além de tudo o que respirasse liberdade, inclusive, ou sobretudo, a sexual" (quoted in Pires, p. 245).Successor to the modernist journal Orpheu, it too published works by the leading figures in Portuguese literature, including Mário Sá-Carneiro, Fernando Pessoa, José Régio, Casais Monteiro, João Gaspar Simões, António de Sousa, Saul Dias, Branquinho da Fonseca, Almada Negreiros, Raul Leal, Alberto de Serpa, Irene Lisboa and Miguel Torga. It was responsible for introducing such foreign writers as Gide and Proust to Portuguese readers and for introducing the criticism of cinema as an art form; in addition, it emphasized contemporary music and the art of Cubists, Futurists, Primitivists and Expressionists.Presença was directed by José Régio, João Gaspar Simões and Branquinho da Fonseca; Casais Monteiro later replaced Branquinho da Fonseca. Graphic contributors included Almada Negreiros, Júlio, Mário Elói, Dórdio Gomes, João Carlos, Sara Afonso, Arlindo Vicente, Paulo, Ventura Porfírio and Bernardo Marques.*** Daniel Pires, DICIONARIO DA IMPRENSA PERIODICA LITERARIA PoRTUGUESA DO SECULO XX (1900-1940), pp. 289-94.
