V.E. Carmelo Nadera Jr.


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1994

Pambihira ang koleksyon na ito dahil sa wikang ginamit ng makata. Sa aking pagkakaalam, si Nadera ang kauna-unahang makata ng kanyang henerasyon na nag-eksperimento at nagpayabong sa wikang ‘Filipino,’ at makikita ang kinalabasan nito sa mga tulang narito. Ang kanyang lengguwahe ay makabago; ibig sabihin ay naaangkop sa sining ng kaluluwa. Ang kanyang mga paksa at tema ay tumatalakay sa ating buhay-pangkasalukuyan. Ngunit anuman ang mga ito—strike, rally, bakla, rebolusyon, kasaysayan, anakpawis, relihiyon—nabibigyan ng karapat-dapat na tono at sining ang kanyang diskurso, na nangangahulugan lamang na si Nadera ay isang tunay na makata.” —Cirilo Bautista

55 Poems

Jose Garcia Villa


Winner, National Book Award, Translation, 1995

Selected and translated into Tagalog by Hilario S. Francia

Jose Garcia Villa is one of the Philippines’ National Artists for Literature. “The center of Villa’s universe is man, the puny inhabitants of a tiny planet, and the poet measures him fearlessly in the scale of perfection, which is God. He affirms God with a lyric exaltation allied to the religious mystics. Yet, on behalf of man, he challenges God in a daring affirmation that the creature made in His image contains in himself the seeds of His perfection.”—from the Citation of the National Artist Award
