Abstract

Carnival, the annual celebration before Lent, is perhaps the most widely attended of Brazilian festivals and certainly the most widely recognized internationally. Scholars and writers from various disciplines continue to examine Carnival, Carnaval in Portuguese, as both a reflection and a distortion of national identity. This bibliography is intended to help the reader locate materials that describe the history, music, and images of Carnival, and its role in Brazilian popular culture. Many more sources can be located through the General Libraries' online catalog, UTCAT.
