Saudade has no exact English translation. If you ask one of these islanders what he means by it, he will say that he is sad, but something more than sad – homesick, for a home that no longer exists, and in his own life never did exist; he longs for something “again,” and the longing is so acute that it hurts and saddens – yet he cannot tell you what it is he longs for! And that, as nearly as he is likely to explain it, is the Saudade.
