Sa Daigdig ng Kontradiksiyon: Mga Saling-Wika
Jose F. Lacaba
This book translated into Filipino the works of W. H. Auden, Charles Baudelaire, William Blake, and Bertold Brecht; of Filipina Lorena Barrios; and of three anonymously written works including the Desiderata. Writes Conrado de Quiros: “Much is lost in Pete Lacaba’s translation of Great Poetry into Pilipino: the fear of poetry, the fear of greatness, and the fear of Pilipino. Everything else is gained.”

Sakit ng Kalingkingan: 100 Dagli sa Edad ng Krisis
Rolando B. Tolentino
Ang sakit ng kalingkingan ay maaaring sintomas ng mas malalang sakit ng katawan o epekto ng maliit sa malaking bahagi o kabuuan nito. Kaya hindi dapat isawalang-bahala ang sakit ng kalingkingan, lalo na sa edad ng krisis kahit pa ang krisis ay hindi eksepsiyon kundi normal na kalakaran sa ating neokolonyal na bansa.

“In moments of pique, or youthful pride, or despair, [Emmanuel Lacaba] had thrown or given away many of his early poems. In 1973 he submitted to the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature what he could put together under the title Salvaged Poems—this was before the word “salvaged” acquired the peculiar Filipino meaning it now has, of being executed summarily or extrajudicially.”—Jose Lacaba, in the second edition’s editor’s note
Manila: Salinlahi Publishing House, 1986
Edited by Jose Lacaba

Illustrated by Nards Cruz
Catholic Press Award winner in 1981 and in 1982 winner in Gawad Surian ng Wikang Pambansa.
An important legend of the Philippines is about the coming of 10 datus from Borneo to the island of Panay. Who were they? Why did and how did they come to Panay? Why did the Ita who lived on the plains migrate to the hills? Who was the leader of the natives who welcomed the datus? What did the datus offer in return for settling on the plains of Panay? This book also uncovers the meaning of “Ati-atihan,” a yearly celebration in Panay.
Metro Manila: Aklat Adarna, 1981
“Released from the wheel of each poem’s body is a fierce voice defying the restless shift of shadows, turning yet once again the weight of grief palpable in passing forms. Samsara is Allan Popa’s desire for a metaphysics sung into shape. Every poem in this collection is an invitation to fasten the consciousness to the cycle of desire’s endless reincarnations.”—Marjorie Evasco

The boy in our story belongs to a different kind of family. He has a dozen brothers he looks up to—all of whom look different from one another! Much as their family is an uncommon one, their joy becomes extraordinary because it comes 12 times over! Adults may use this story to illustrate the reality of lost and orphaned children and what their lives are like inside a children’s home. The story helps to teach children about the importance of family, the role each member fulfills, and how each one contributes to the well-being of the others.

Kailan nagiging walang habag ang alaala, kailan ito makatarungan? Kailan ito lumalatay, kailan magaan at humahagod ang taglay na kabutihan?

“Fr. de la Costa, the ‘gentle genius,’ was truly one of the Philippines’ great gifts to the Jesuits, to the Church, and to the entire human family. A man of great intelligence and natural talent, he never lost touch with the simple and down-to-earth realities of his people and their needs….

Si Makisig: Ang Batang Nagligtas sa Kanyang Bayan
Lamberto E. Antonio
The story is adapted from “Makisig the Little Hero of Mactan” by Gemma Cruz Araneta, which won the first prize in a children’s-story-writing contest. Makisig shows qualities desirable in a good child: bravery, industry, a sense of initiative, and a habit of being early. Because of his zeal to help and please his parents, he would get up early and sail to fish for breakfast. It was during one such trip that, from a distance, he sighted the big ships of foreign invaders. He rowed quickly back to his village, ran past the guards of Datu Lapu Lapu and informed him of what he had seen.

“The 10 stories of Siglo strive to capture the zeitgeist of various points of 20th-century Philippine life, beginning in the 1900s and creating snapshots of the decades that lead all beyond the year 2000. We find recurring themes, for freedom transcends time and space, and no matter how things change, human nature remains the same. It is, after all, human nature to long to be free.”—The editors, in the introduction

Twelve stories (in comics) presenting different types of passions—from a fey spirit that falls hopelessly in love with a mortal man, to a loving mother’s passion for cooking for her family; from a man whose anger and desperation keep his soul trapped on earth; and into the future where we discover that passion can touch even the existence of an automaton searching for the meaning of her life.

Randolf S. David, Jaime Zobel
The book was designed by Francisco Dopy Doplon
“This book of 19 essays woven from the raw material of interviews is not so much about silence itself as it is about lives seen through the prism of solitude and shared from the fullness of self-awareness. Some of the subjects are celebrities in their own right. Others are individuals who have sometimes led difficult and heroic lives. Silence has helped them to see the beauty in everyday life, to tame their private demons, deal with loneliness, or come to terms with the ugly and painful side of living.”—Randolf David

Six Women Poets: Inter/Views with Angela Manalang-Gloria, Trinidad Tarrosa-Subido, Edith L. Tiempo, Virginia R. Moreno,
Marjorie Evasco, Edna Z. Manlapaz
“In early 1991 we sat down to discuss the exciting possibilities of engaging in conversation women who we considered key figures in the shaping of the tradition of Philippine poetry in English from 1900 to 1990. We envisioned a book that would be informed not only by the issues of gender and creativity, but also one that would dialogue these issues from two points of reference: that of a scholar’s interest in the published literary texts; and that of a creative writer’s concern for the creative process.”—Marjorie Evasco and Edna Zapanta Manlapaz

Sylvia L. Mayuga
The book contains 11 lovely essays that speak of a time in our country by the term the author tells us the Vedas use for our entire historical period: ‘The Age of Quarrel.’ Born in wartime, young during the years that are both the best and the worst for the Republic, Sylvia Mayuga writes in this book of how the late 1960s formed her—and her generation of Filipinos.”

State of War
An endless festival amidst an endless war is the central image of this novel about the Philippines of the Marcos era, a time of brutality, treachery, and betrayed passion. Three young people arrive on the island of K___ for the annual festival. In the second section, the novel moves back in time, on a headlong, magical, sometimes hallucinatory reprise of Filipino history and the history of the families of the three young people. Finally, in the third section, once again, the novel is about the festival, and the novel reaches its shattering conclusion.

Jaime Zobel de Ayala
“I like the term ‘still life’ better than its French or Spanish translations: nature mort or naturaleza muerta, as the words mort and muerta (death) bother me. There is nothing ‘dead’ in my compositions; on the contrary, my photography praises ‘life.’ Let us say that my subject matter is ‘alive’ but that I have captured a fleeting moment of its existence, a moment that can never be repeated.”—Jaime Zobel de Ayala, in the preface

Subli: Isang Sayaw sa Apat na Tinig
Elena Rivera Mirano
Research and music transcription by Elena Rivera Mirano; Photography by Neal M. Oshima; and Dance notation by Basilio Esteban Villaruz
“When work on Subli began, we had modest goals. We wanted to enter a dance, take it apart, look at the pieces, and put them back, all properly labeled, to present to the reader. But as we proceeded, we began to discover that we were not in possession of a static object or corpus that could and would stand for dissection. Our ‘object’ led us in strange, unforeseen directions. It had a will, a life, and most of all, a voice, or to be more exact, voices, of its own.”—Elena Rivera Mirano
