    Maganda pa ang Daigdig

    Lazaro Francisco

    Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Literature, 1982
    This novel was serialized in the magazine Liwayway in 1955. This novel challenged its readers to solve or alleviate the festering wound of Philippine society: the widespread feudalism in the countryside. Francisco identifies the cause of poverty of the farmers and describes their helplessness in the hands of the landlord. He introduces characters of a different kind: one that does not allow oneself to be carried away by the flood of life, and instead acts according to one’s own principle and goal of helping others.
