Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This innovative volume traces Brazil's singular character, exploring both the remarkable richness and cohesion of the national culture and the contradictions and tensions that have developed over time. What shared experiences and memories give its citizens their sense of being Brazilian? What metaphors and stereotypes of identity have emerged? The contributors-a multidisciplinary group of U.S. and Brazilian scholars-offer a fresh look at questions that have been asked since the early nineteenth century and that continue to drive nationalist discourse today. Their chapters explore Brazilian identity through the interlinked concepts of texts, facts, sights, and sounds, offering a compelling analysis of how nationalism functions as a social, political, and cultural construction in Latin America.

Book News Annotation:

In this collection of nine essays, contributors describe the texts, facts, sights and sounds of analysis of Brazilian national identity. They cover da Cunha's view of Brazil's fractured identity and Freyre's concept of culture, published works and collections of Brasiliana, the effects of the public schools from 1937 to 1945, the visual imaging of identity and its expression in film in the case of the Brazilian Indian, Pedro I and his impact on views of Brazil, and the music representations of Brazil of Gomes and Villa-Lobos. The result is a model for future national studies. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
