This two-volume opus on Philippine folklore is our second response to a challenge posed by writer F. Hornedo who, in a historical essay on Philippine literature, stated that "because so much of oral literature has been recorded and published, it now provides contemporary artists materials to build upon or draw from."
Our first response to the aforesaid challenge was another two-volume opus entitled Folk Narratives from Our Forefathers (2000, 2001).
Oral literature is also referred to as folk literature. It consists of folktales, myths, legends, fairy tales, epics, sayings, and other forms which have emanated from the folk or common people and handed from generation to generation through telling and re-telling.
Such folklore materials become folk literature when they are written down and published in books and other publications.
