Sample text

António de Oliveira Salazar (1899–1970) established the so-called Estado Novo (New State), becoming the country’s de facto dictator until 1968. Democracy would only be restored in 1974, following another military coup. From a cultural perspective, the most obvious impact of the dictatorial regime was the establishment of State censorship. Many Portuguese intellectuals felt that they were living exiled in their own country, as in the time of the sixteenth-century ‘Village Court’ and, as then, waiting for liberation.

E se vós, filha, meu amor queredes, rogo vos eu que nunca lhi faledes sen mi, ai filha fremosa. E al á i de que vos non guardades: perdedes i de quanto lhi falades sen mi, ai filha fremosa. Lovely daughter, look what I’m telling you: Don’t talk with your boyfriend Without me, oh lovely daughter. And, daughter, if you want my love, I ask you that you never talk with him Without me, oh lovely daughter. And there’s something else you’re not aware of: You lose every word you talk with him Without me, oh lovely daughter.

The dramatic complexity of the situation, which outstrips that of nearly any other cantiga de amor, could be attributed either to an early experimental stage in the development of the genre in the thirteenth century, or to a long-standing tradition which was subsequently abandoned in favour of simpler scenarios. As the thirteenth century progresses the genre tends to become less flexible.
