IPTC INFO
CaptionCarnaval! Paperback by Barbara Mauldin Editor Carnaval Fasnacht Entroido Carnival--the annual pre-Lenten festival most people in the United States know as Mardi Gras is celebrated in cities and rural villages throughout Europe and the Americas. With more than 300 dazzling photographs this book offers an international look at Carnival in New Orleans and Basile Louisiana; Laza Spain; rural Bulgaria; Venice Italy; Basel Switzerland; Tlaxcala Mexico; Oruro Bolivia; Recife and Olinda Brazil; Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago; and Port-au-Prince Haiti. Carnival takes similar shapes everywhere European Catholics carried their religion and its festivals. People disguise or adorn themselves in costumes and masks to parade through the streets eating drinking and making music before the Lenten fast begins on Ash Wednesday. But as this book shows indigenous customs with even deeper roots--and in many places customs that accompanied enslaved Africans in their diaspora--became integrated into the festival to give it distinctive local flavors. In the urban Carnivals of Oruro Recife and Olinda Port of Spain Port-au-Prince and New Orleans Carnival groups compete through ingenious masquerades and spectacular performances. Veniceís Carnival--a late-twentieth-century revival--is modeled on elite urban celebrations of the Renaissance and Baselís--one of very few Carnivals to survive among European Protestants after the Reformation--involves large organized troupes who wear masquerades portraying themes of social and political satire. In Haiti Mardi Gras celebrations are deeply politicized and have even played a role in overturning governments. The contributors to this book take readers on a colorful journey through Carnival in these eleven far-flung places outlining the history of Carnival
