    Origins and Rise of the Filipino Novel: A Generic Study of the Novel until 1940

    Resil B. Mojares

    Winner, National Book Award, Literary Criticism, 1983
    This generic study of the Filipino novel situates its development in the context of the narrative tradition and social history of the Philippines. It marks out lines of descent, identifies shifts in modes of narrative representation, considers literary changes in relation to the larger society, and thus offers the reader with a view of the novel not only in itself but also in history.
