Notes de l'éditeur

  1. *Long before the arrival of Western influences, early Filipinos already have stories to tell to younger generations. *The Philippines has a rich collection of fables, legends, and myths from different regions. *When the Spaniards came in the 16th century, they used literature to colonize the country. *Americans introduced English language to Filipinos, and they have grown adept in the usage of the language. *Today, contemporary writers are expanding the horizon of reality and imagination in their works to reflect the Filipino spirit.
  2. We, Filipinos, must recognize and give importance to the people behind the development of Philippine literature. Let’s take a look at the country’s most talented and most influential writers who have received the greatest honor for their significant contributions to Philippine literature
