Filipino Women Writers In English Their Story, 1905-2002
|Pages||270 pp., 600g.|
The book is the first of its kind in Philippine scholarship. It chronicles the evolution of Philippine literature simultaneously in terms of medium (English) and gender (women). In addition, the book proposes hypotheses regarding the whys and wherefores of this specific segment of our literature.
Dr. Manlapaz's "painstaking research is in ample evidence here, not just in the biographical accounts of the writers, but--and especially--in the discussion of the critical reception of their works. Manlapaz skillfully weaves writers' and critics' voices into her seamless narrative of the creative and sometimes conflicting ways in which the Filipino women writers responded in their writings to the sociopolitical and historical forces and situated themselves within and against the Philippine 'literary tradition.'"
