Philippine Folk Literature: The Epics presents 23 folk epics collected from some 14 ethnolinguistic groups in the country. Folk epics are long heroic narratives in verse which recount the adventures of tribal heroes and in the process express the customs, beliefs, and ideals of the people who sing them. The introductory essay, "The Philippine Folk Epic," gives a detailed discussion of the features and characteristics of Philippine folk epics-- their geographic distribution, epic singing and singers, the epic hero, his adventures, his outstanding qualities, epic conventions, dominant motifs, and the customs, beliefs, and values expressed in them. This volume gives the reader an opportunity to get acquainted with more than a dozen tribal epic heroes and the values and ideals they stand for. As in other volumes in the Philippine Folk Literature Series, the selections are given in English translation, but a sampling of the text in the original language is given at the beginning of each selection.

Winner of the Gawad CCP para sa Sining (Cultural Research), Eugenio is considered “Ina ng Folklore ng Pilipinas (Mother of Philippine Folklore).” She is Professor Emeritus at the UP Department of English and Comparative Literature.
