Rosario De Guzman Lingat, 1924-1997 (the Burden Of Self And History)
|Dimension||6 x 9|
Rosario de Guzman Lingat (1924-1997) did not need a room of her own to produce a steady stream of short stories, essays, novels, and komiks stories which endeared her to a loyal reading public in the early 1960s and 1970s.
This, according to Soledad S. Reyes who has done an extensive study of Lingat's life and work in Rosario de Guzman Lingat, 1924-1997: The Burden of Self and History. Through interviews and close reading of Lingat's prolific literary output, Reyes weaves together the pieces of Lingat's life to give contemporary readers a more intimate portrait of one of the major figures in Tagalog literature.
Dr. Soledad S. Reyes is Professor at the Interdisciplinary Studies Department of the Ateneo de Manila University. "Combining biographical and literary criticism, Reyes's carefully researched and accessibly written book reconstructs Rosario Lingat's eventful life from her texts while illuminating the institutional and ideological forces which helped shape the production, dissemination, and reception of her work." -- Caroline S.
