Title: Literatura de Cordel Brazilian Chapbook Collection, 1930-2008
Description: With over 9000 chapbooks in its Brazilian Chapbook Collection, the American Folklife Center houses one of the largest collections of literatura de cordel in the world. Descended from the medieval troubadour and chapbook tradition of Europe, literatura de cordel has entertained and informed the general public of Brazil for over a century, and offers insight into the popular culture of the country. In the markets of northeast Brazil, where literatura de cordel is most popular, local poets hang their little four by six-and-a-half inch chapbooks from strings, hence the name "literatura de cordel," which literally means “string literature.” The poets, known as cordelistas, then entertain the market crowd by reciting their narrative poems about current events, morality, or the adventures of a famous folk hero. Equally entertaining are the attractive woodcut prints, often done by the cordelista himself, that appear on the covers of the chapbooks to vividly illustrate the theme of the verses inside. The collection also contains 13 7-inch tapes of romances and other songs recorded by Sol Biderman in northeastern, Brazil, ca. 1968-1970, SR01-SR13 [AFS 14178-14190, LWO 6077].
