    Revaluation: Essays on Philippine Literature, Cinema, and Popular Culture

    Bienvenido L. Lumbera

    Winner, National Book Award, Literary Criticism, 1985
    Long out of print, Revaluation is a compilation of Bienvenido Lumbera’s critical essays on Philippine literature, cinema, and popular culture between 1962 and 1984. The 1997 edition adds 22 new articles and an interview to the original 13 essays of the 1984 edition, all of them hallmarks of Lumbera’s consistent nationalist and democratic outlook. The result is an impressive survey of Philippine culture as reinterpreted—and revaluated—by an important critic and teacher who has exercised a strong influence on the directions Philippine cultural scholarship has been taking for nearly three decades now.
