|Title: ||The making of saudade. National identity and ethnic psychology in Portugal|
|Authors: ||Leal, João|
Invention of tradition
|Issue Date: ||2000|
|Publisher: ||Het Spinhuis Publishers, Amsterdam|
|Abstract: ||Saudade can be considered a successful 'invented tradition'
in reference to some specific social and cultural milieus where a particular version of Portugueseness has developed.
From this point of view, saudade should be regarded as an example of a
more widespread tendency present in other processes of construction and circulation
of national symbols and stereotypes: although directed towards the
whole national population, they are in fact selectively appropriated by specific
cultural and social groups who reproduce them as particular symbols of their
own sense of a more general feeling: that of 'being national'.|
