Among the French who went to Brazil in the early nineteenth century, Ferdinand Denis (1798-1890) occupies an exceptional place. After a stay that took him from Rio to Salvador, Denis devoted a dozen books to present this country to the French. The six volumes of ‘Brazil, or History, manners, customs and customs of the inhabitants of this kingdom’ (1822) was followed by the ‘ Summary of the History of Guyana’ (1825).
On the literary level, he sees in the grandiose landscape and the generosity of the climate material to inspire a sublime poetry, a message that is addressed at first to his compatriots, but that will also receive the Brazilians. This is the meaning of his ‘Scènes de la nature sous les tropiques et leur influence sur la poésie’. Followed by Camoens and Joze Indio (1824), an illustration of the poetic power of countries and exotic populations. He was the first to conceive of Brazilian literature as something different and to point out pathways for the future," says Antonio Candido in his ‘O Romantismo no Brasil’.
Translated in Brazil in 1835, this book was of great influence on Romanticism on both sides of the Atlantic.
A very pretty example.
