Dor is a poetic tradition from Romania, the expression of longing for the cosmic dimension of life, from which we feel disconnected due to a forgotten event. The hidden meaning of dor is missing the sexual union with the one who is one’s eternal soul love. Dor has equivalents in other cultures, such as saudade, the blues, Sehnsucht, Tizita, Hiraeth, Assouf, appocundria, clivota (cnenie), stesk, Hasret, sevdah.
