    This lecture will attempt to provide a sketch of the migration and transformation of some key ideas brought to Brazil for over five centuries, which ensued in the creation of a diverse colossus Brazil, constituted of ‘brazils’, unified by a common language and meta-language of unstinting patriotism allied with a joyful belief in its soft and virtually boundless power.
