In this work the author, on the basis of a study upon an artwork taken in its stylistic and formal features, deepens his knowledge about the poem Autopsicografia by Fernando Pessoa. The portuguese poet is able to bring who read into the land of psyche, where the thought is formulated, through the discourse upon heteronyms and the need of fiction. It is about following the course of movements of thought which are internal to the poem itself, in the articulation of the experience of the poet meeting the flux of his same work. This flux will give birth to a metaphorical image, resulting of the activation of the transcendental function following Jung’s theorizing.
