Valuable collection of essays

by mchris08@gmail.com on 10/20/2007

This volume is a very valuable collection of essays, some translated for the first time from Portuguese, on the topic of sodomy in Luso-Brazilian history. They range in time from one on Prince Henry 'the Navigator' (outed here) and another on King Sebastian through various Portuguese nobles and assorted victims of the Inquisition to late 19th and early 20th century gays both in Portugal and Brazil. The book is beautifully produced and printed. It should be the standard reference for the subject for years to come.

Product Overview

This volume of collected articles is the first to focus exclusively on the history of homosexuality in the Portuguese-speaking world. Of the thirteen studies included, nine make available for the first time in English the work of eminent Luso-Brazilian historians, including no less than three by the preeminent researcher in the field, Professor Luiz Mott of the Federal University of Bahia. Two others analyze in detail the first novels, "The Baron of Lavos" in Portugal and "Bom-Crioulo" in Brazil--both written in the 1890s--that portray a homosexual relationship in a frankly realistic way. The collection should serve as essential reading for courses in Portuguese and Brazilian social history.
