It is not an accident that Blanco in his research has gone beyond the wonted practice of previous historians, devising an original methodology in dealing with the past. A scholar trained in the discipline of Comparative Literature, he is alert to the role of cultural artifacts in depicting the past and articulating consciousness of both artist and audience. His reading of the Letras y figuras of the painter Jose Honorato Lozano opened for him the world of nineteenth-century natives, and the scholar thus wended his way into the “constitutions” that transformed colonial subjects into thinking and, above all, articulate natives like Jose Rizal. The field of Philippine Studies is fortunate to hail the arrival of a major cultural historian whose innovative practice will profitably light the path of young scholars of the future. —Bienvenido L. Lumbera, National Artist for Literature
