Brown Heritage Essays On Philippine Cultural Tradition And Tradition
"Brown Heritage was envisioned to fill the need to place Philippine literature within the context of a tradition born of the unique Philippine experience; an effort to examine and evaluate the cultural antecedents which conditioned literary form in the Philippines, thereby hopefully alleviating the Filipino's helpless loneliness and]\rage of the man without a past." - Editor
" The book was the first scholarly attempt to lay out the guidelines for the study of Philippine Literature and establish the critical norm by which it is judged. (Brown Heritage covered the Philippine writing in both the vernacular and in English, but its treatment of vernacular writing, although the first of its kind, was schematic rather than profound, and its chief contribution was in the field of Philippine writing in English...This book is one of the landmark of research into Philippine writing in English." - Philippine Studies No. 32 : The early tradition : Philippine writing in English 1910-1940.
