The Book of Disquiet was left in a trunk which might never have been opened. The gods must be thanked that it was. I love this strange work of fiction and I love the inventive, hard-drinking, modest man who wrote it in obscurity’ Paul Bailey, Independent. Portugal’s greatest modern poe. eals with the only important question in the world, not less important because it is unanswerable: What am I?’ Anthony Burgess, Observer.
Beatrice of Portugal (c. 1347–5 July 1381) was Countess of Alburquerque as the wife of Sancho Alfonso of Alburquerque. She was the daughter of Peter I of Portugal and his wife Inês de Castro. Beatrice was born in 1347 in Coimbra. Beatrice's entitlement to be considered an Infanta of Portugal is debatable.
Despite being in remarkably similar situations, Maria and Beatrice were radically different. Maria was enslaved in America and Beatrice was enslaved in Lebanon. Maria was a 12-year-old Mexican girl who wanted to help her impoverished parents and experience America
Despite being in remarkably similar situations, Maria and Beatrice were radically different. Maria was a 12-year-old Mexican girl who wanted to help her impoverished parents and experience America. She was promised money, an education, shelter, food and nourishment, but when she arrived in America she was given none of that. 1 On the other hand, Beatrice Fernando was a 23-year- old single mother in Sri Lanka. She took a job opportunity in Lebanon, where she was promised good pay, a good job, and a better life for her child.

Beatrice is one of the most delightful characters in all of Shakespeare - certainly one of the most talkative and witty
Beatrice is one of the most delightful characters in all of Shakespeare - certainly one of the most talkative and witty. She is likely to touch a responsive chord with many readers and playgoers today in light of current social ideas that encourage greater equality and self-assertiveness for women than has been traditional for women of the Western world. The traditional woman of the Elizabethan period, especially of Beatrice's class, is better represented by her cousin Hero - the naive, chaste, and quiet young woman of whom Beatrice is extremely protective.
