    Filipinos Writing: Philippine Literature from the Regions

    Edited by Bienvenido Lumbera

    Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Literature, 2002
    “In the new millennium, at a time when ‘globalization’ is repeatedly invoked as a vision of the future of the world, young Filipinos must be aware that in all the 78 provinces of their native country, Filipino writers have turned out literary works in eight major Philippine languages, in two colonial languages, and in a variety of little-known ethnic languages. This body of works represents a distinct heritage that has imprinted “Filipino-ness” on our culture, even as its identity is continually developing and being clarified with every writing generation.”?From the preface
