    Bullets and Roses: The Poetry of Amado V. Hernandez

    Amado Hernandez

    Winner, Manila Critics Circle Members’ Award, 2003
    Translated and with a critical introduction by Cirilo F. Bautista
    This is the definitive book on Amado V. Hernandez, the poet. Bautista’s translation of important poems from Isang Dipang Langit captures the richness and complexity of Hernandez’s texts and conveys to the sensitive reader much of the poetic qualities that distinguish Hernandez from other Tagalog bards. Called variously as “leading poet and writer” (Claro M. Recto), “life and hope of Tagalog poetry” (Jose Corazon de Jesus), and “great Tagalog poet” (Jesus Balmori), Hernandez appeals to a large segment of society with his incisive and intense portrayal of human passion, aspiration, and nobility.
