|Author||Cirilo F. Bautista|
|Dimension||5 x 8, 240g|
This volume presents the works of young poets who have enlivened our literature with their fresh voices and unique interpretation of their world. They respond to social and personal realities with exciting and well-informed facility which vibrates with a taut understanding of human virtues and weaknesses, perils and destinations. Their commentaries and discourses are sourced in their intimate communion with persons and nature and expressed in competent language. They are gathered here for the fist timea really unusual collection that indicates the coming of a new phase in Philippine poetic development.
The selections are representative rather than comprehensive, but suffice to give an idea of the young poets' concern and artistry. They delineate different aspects of love, rationalize on terror and war, and flesh out their childhood mythology and the cosmology of their growth to maturity. There is also talk about death, the sanctity of memory and simple things, the erection of monuments to moments when life pulses so strongly. The inclination of the self for disengaging from the transcendental arises as a reaction to the relativistic machinery of the modern age. Never have there been so many challenges to people's individuality and selfhood as there are in these times. These young poets face these challenges and, as this book shows, provide us with intense and enjoyable contemplation of their visions
