ABSTRACT
A literary criticism of the poetry books "Soledades," by Spanish poet Antonio Machado, and "Obras em prosa," by Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, is presented. The author explores whether Machado's "soledad" is similar to Pessoa's use of "saudade." The poetic themes of isolation, solitude, reminiscence, and yearning are focused upon.
