  • Adamastor is a Greek-type mythological character famed by the Portuguese poet Luís de Camões in his epic poem Os Lusíadas (first printed in 1572), as a symbol of the forces of nature Portuguese navigators had to overcome during their discoveries. Camões gave his creation a history as one of the Gigantes of Greek mythology who had been spurned by Thetis, now appearing in the form of a threatening storm cloud to Vasco da Gama and threatening ruin to anyone hardy enough to pass the Cape and penetrate the Indian Ocean, which was Adamastor's domain. Adamastor became the Spirit of the Cape, a hideous phantom of unearthly pallor:"Even as I spoke, an immense shapeMaterialised in the night air,Grotesque and enormous statureWith heavy jowls, and an unkempt beardScowling from shrunken, hollow eyesIts complexion earthy and pale,Its hair grizzled and matted with clay,Its mouth coal black, teeth yellow with decay. —Camões, The Lusiads Canto V.Adamastor represented the dangers Portuguese sailors faced when trying to round the Cape of Storms, henceforth called, in consequence of the resultant success in despite thereof, Cape of Good Hope. Adamastor, both the mythological character and the sculpture, are mentioned several times in José Saramago's Nobel Prize winning novel, The Year Of the Death of Ricardo Reis. Adamastor has figured in much poetry of the Cape. In The First Life of Adamastor, a novella by André Brink, the writer refashioned the Adamastor story from a 20th-century perspective.A popular gathering place in Lisbon is also known by the name 'Adamastor' because of the large stone statue of the mythical figure which presides over the space, which is officially called the Miradouro de Santa Catarina. This vista point offers visitors some of the most breathtaking views of the Tagus river, the 25 de Abril Bridge and the Cristo-Rei monument. Adamastor is also mentioned in the opera L'Africaine (1865) about Vasco da Gama by the composer Giacomo Meyerbeer. The slave Nelusko sings a song about Adamastor while he deliberately steers the ship into a storm and it sinks.It is mentioned by Voltaire in his Essai sur la poésie épique. It also appears in the works of Victor Hugo: Les Misérables (III, Marius, chap III) and in a poem dedicated to Lamartine (Les Feuilles d'automne, chap IX). Alexandre Dumas, père refers the giant six times: Le Comte de Monte Cristo (chap. XXXI), Vingt ans après (chap. LXXVII), Georges (chap. I), Bontekoe, Les drames de la mer, (chap. I), Causeries (chap. IX) and Mes Mémoires (chap. CCXVIII). Gaston Leroux also mentions it in The Phantom of the Opera (chap. VI). Herman Melville mentions Adamastor and Camões in his Billy Budd, at the end of Chapter VII.Adamastor is also the name of a sauropod dinosaur, Angolatitan adamastor from Angola, named by the paleontologist Octávio Mateus.
  • Adamastor – jeden z bohaterów utworu Luísa de Camõesa Luzjady. Symbolizuje siły natury, które musieli pokonać portugalscy żeglarze w czasie swoich podróży. Wedle Camõesa jest jednym z greckich gigantów; miał objawić się Vasco da Gamie jako potężna chmura burzowa, broniąca dostępu do Przylądka Dobrej Nadziei, za którym rozciąga się Ocean Indyjski – obszar, nad którym władzę sprawuje właśnie Adamastor."Właśnie gdym mówił, coś kształtu wielkiegoZ nocy głębokiej k'nam zawitało,Postać olbrzyma, zgoła nieznanego,Jegoż posępne k'nam spozierałoOko; blada jego cera, włos siwy,Splątany straszliwie; usta czernidło,Zęby żółte: znać zgrzytał tak złośliwy" - Luzjady, pieśń V (przekład własny)

  • Adamastor é um mítico gigante baseado na mitologia greco-romana, referido por Luís de Camões em Os Lusíadas, também referido por Fernando Pessoa no poema O Mostrengo, chamando-lhe Mostrengo. Representa as forças da natureza contra Vasco da Gama sob a forma de uma tempestade, ameaçando a ruína daquele que tentasse dobrar o Cabo da Boa Esperança e penetrasse no Oceano Índico, os alegados domínios de Adamastor.
