    History and Society in the Novels of Ramon Muzones

    Ma. Cecilia Locsin-Nava

    Winner, National Book Award, Literary Studies, 2001
    A study of how biography, literary tradition, and social history intersect, showing how outstanding Hiligaynon writer Ramon Muzones reacted to the socioeconomic and political changes during his time. The book considers over a hundred primary texts in order to account for the dominance of the romance mode in the Hiligaynon novel, the Ilonggo writers’ attraction for the supernatural, and the tradition of feisty women characters.
