    • Necessary Fictions: Philippine Literature and the Nation, 1946-1980
    • Author: Caroline S. Hau
    • Award Title: Winner, National Book Award, Film Criticism, 2000
    • Description: The book examines the connection between Philippine literature and nationalist discourse during the postwar period. Through close readings of the works of a number of writers, it argues that the long-standing affinity between Philippine literature and nationalism is based, in part, on the power of literature to formulate and work through a set of questions central to nationalist debates on the possibility and necessity of social change. It asks: What is the relationship between knowledge and action? Between the personal and political? Between the foreign and Filipino? Between culture and history, culture and politics, culture and economics?
