Portuguese-Language Literatures


Chamberlain, Bobby J. Portuguese Language and Luso-Brazilian Literature: An Annotated Guide to Selected Reference Works. New York: MLA, 1989. 95 pp. Selected Bibliogs. in Lang. and Lit. 6. Z2725.A2 C45 [PC5041] 016.869.

A selective guide to reference works, for the most part published since 1945, for the study of the Portuguese language and Luso-Brazilian literature. The approximately 538 entries (including numbered cross-references) are organized in extensively classified divisions for Portuguese language, Portuguese literature, Brazilian literature, and Luso-African and other lusophone literatures. The annotations are largely descriptive, although some offer evaluations. Indexed by authors. Given the relatively small number of separate works cited, Portuguese Language and Luso-Brazilian Literature includes a disconcerting number of errors and amount of outdated information.
