Waugh Presentation at Goa Conference

The third international conference on the culture, language and literature of Goa was convened last week in India and is reported in several Indian news services. The primary subject was the theatre in Goa, and a presentation was also made on Evelyn Waugh’s 1953 essay “Goa: The Home of a Saint”. This involved a reading of the article in Portuguese. The essay was based on Waugh’s trip to Goa in late 1952-early 1953 where he observed Christmas and the 400th anniversary of the death of Saint Francis Xavier who is buried in a Goan church. The original article was published in December 1953 in both the Month and Esquire magazines. It is collected in Essays, Articles and Reviews.
