Saudosismo => Yearning

Saudade | Portuguese literature |
Saudade: Saudade, (Portuguese: “yearning”), overtone of melancholy and brooding loneliness and an almost mystical reverence for nature that permeates Portuguese and Brazilian lyric poetry. Saudade ... In the late 19th century António Nobre and Teixeira de Pascoais were the foremost of a growing cult of saudosismo.
