|Author||Kristian Sendon Cordero|
There is no better proof of the surging revival of Bikol literature (poetry, stories, novels, and even movies written and conceived in the Bikol language) than the works being published today in and from the home ground, Bikol region. And the most remarkable thing about this renaissance is that it is being led by younger writers in the prime of their creative life, not least known of whom is the award-winning bilingual poet and Bikol scholar Kristian Sendon Cordero. And it is not just writing poetry but exploring the lesser known territories of poetic composition such as what Cordero is doing in Canticos. With his characteristic opulence of substance and unmistakable sound, Cordero is breaking sacred ground here with the audacious use of the profane in poetry that is unfettered by, or almost naked with the extremes of formthe revealing and revelation of bone and structure, or the strictures that in the end liberate meaning.
