Saudades are nostalgic longings for things that are distant, that have ebbed from
experience. Brazil's first European visitors saw it as an Eden, an immensely rich
land that provoked desire, fascination, and curiosity. In time, the Edenic past
receded.1 In 1931, as the economic depression's hold deepened, the critic Paulo
Prado reported endemic melancholy— "in a radiant land there lives a sad people
. This melancholy is the inheritance of its discoverers, who revealed it to the world

Darius Milhaud Darius Milhaud Saudades d0 Brazil (1920) “Botafogo” During
World War I, Darius Milhaud was employed by the French diplomatic corps. Much

inquisitiveness led him to seek out and study the local popular dance music—the
sambas, tangos, and maxixes that were heard in bars and restaurants throughout
Rio. Milhaud developed a great fondness for the musical subtleties and tone of
these dances, ...

The cultivation of saudade is one of the trademarks of Portuguese culture. The
explanations of such a cultural phenomenon are complex and vary according to
different historical periods, aesthetic practices, and political conditions. One of the
attributes of this longing is the perception that Portugal—formerly one of the
leading world powers in the Renaissance —suffered an irreversible demise over
the next centuries. By contrast, the cultivation of saudades in Brazil is rarely
related to ...

Circling back to Barthes and chapter 1, I show how reading others' losses (
Bishop cites Levi-Strauss as well as Parks) can spur our own realizations. Light
in the Dark Room stemmed from looking, in photography, at my own
autobiographical losses. This chapter was first presented in Brazil. Why Brazil?
Levi-Strauss's photographic memoir is called Saudades do Brasil, and the term
saudades appears in two other works here and runs as the spirit of them all.
Saudades is as intrinsic to ...

Saudade is probably the most significant and typical expression of the Brazilian
soul, a combination of longing and desire, mixed with nostalgia and melancholy.
Saudade is the desire for something or someone who is far away or is
unattainable. Brazilians have saudades when they live abroad and get homesick,
when they are separated from a loved one, or when they recall good old times.
But saudade is not merely an emotional response to a situation or memory. It is a
