Why We Need to Study Philippine Literature
by sese torres
Why We Need to Study Philippine Literature? We study literature so that we can better appreciate our literary heritage. We cannot appreciate something that we do not understand. Through a study of our literature, we can trace the rich heritage of ideas handed down to us from our forefathers. Then we can understand ourselves better and take pride in being a Filipino. Like other races of the world, we need to understand that we have a great and noble tradition which can serve as the means to assimilate other cultures. Through such a study, we will realize our literary limitations conditioned by certain historical factors and we can take steps to overcome them. yAbove all, as Filipinos, who truly love and take pride in our own culture, we have to manifest our deep concern for our own literature and this we can do by studying the literature of our country.

The word literature is derived from the Latin term litera which means letter. Some loosely interpret literature as any printed matter written within a book, a magazine or a pamphlet. Others define literature as a faithful reproduction of man's manifold experiences blended into one harmonious expression. Because literature deals with ideas, thoughts and emotions of man, literature can be said to be the story of man. Man's loves, grief's, thoughts, dreams and aspirations coached in beautiful language is literature. In order to know the history of a nation's spirit, one must read its literature. MAPPING THE FEATURES OF PHILIPPINE LITERATURE PRE-COLONIAL PERIOD ✓ Our ancient literature shows our customs and traditions in everyday life as traced in our folk stories, old plays and short stories. ✓ Our ancestors also had their alphabet-similar of the Malayo-Polynesian. ✓ Whatever records our ancestors were either burned by Spanish friars or written on materials that easily perished ✓ It is oral in nature and is full of lessons and ideas about life, its blessings, and its consequences. ✓ The verses were addressed to the ears rather than the eyes ✓ Verse composed and sung were regarded as group property

This chapter presents a study about the literature young Filipinos read today. The first part briefly reviews the literary canon, curriculum, and teaching practices during the American colonial period. The second part details the study which specifically addresses the following questions: (1) What literary texts are required by high school teachers in the literature classrooms? (2) What literary texts are read by Filipino high school students on their own? (3) Is the Anglo- American literary canon, introduced through the American public school system about a hundred years ago, still being used in Filipino literature course today? (4) To what extent does Philippine literature in English occupy the Filipino students’ literature education? More than a hundred years after American soldiers first taught English to Filipino schoolchildren, Philippine literature education today continues to privilege texts of American and European origins.
This research aims to stress the importance of Philippine literature to the Filipino identity and consciousness of youth since there is ignorance towards the subject due to colonial mentality. To prevent the growing ignorance, strategies and interventions of other writers (such as implementation of law that conserve, promote and protect Philippine literature, use of incentives to strengthen the faith of Filipino writers, and use of mass media to advertise Philippine literature to the youth) and the author (the notion that Philippine literature should become a separate subject that should be taught to pupils as early as grade four).

Literature has always been an instrument that reflects the life and times of people of various ages and civilizations. This is the reason why Literature subjects are incorporated in the Philippine curricula from the secondary to the tertiary level. The aim of this course is to broaden the knowledge of academic patrons as regards the realities that engulf a particular society. The researcher has foreseen the importance of Philippine Literature instruction, especially with the advent of K to 12. Thus, this literary research is the proponents’ dissertation which intends to add to the existing methodologies and approaches in the teaching of Philippine Literature in the contemporary. The researcher has come up with an instructional guide that would serve as alternative reference material for Literature teachers in the K to 12 program. However, only three (3) analyses from the instructional guide were included in this journal. This instructional guide takes a detour from the conventional ...
Pedagogical questions on whether recency or relevance of literary texts, and the importance of generic academic over discipline-based learning objectives as the core of literature instruction are increasingly becoming the interest of debates in senior high school education. Hence, this study determined the degree of importance of literary instruction in preparation for college education and workplace challenges as assessed by 38 Grade 11 students at Malvar Senior High School, Philippines during the school year 2016-2017. By employing the survey type of descriptive research with a self-made questionnaire, it was found out that the respondents assessed both recency and relevance as important consideration in selecting literary texts. They also perceived that discipline-based/work-oriented learning objectives, especially those that focus on honing their human relation skills, were relevant in preparing themselves for college education and workplace responsibilities. Moreover, the respo...

This paper examines narrative literature from various Philippine literary periods to identify and articulate a national philosophy of Philippine narrative literature.
Brief summary and critique of a selection of Philippine literature: the two novels of Jose Rizal, Noli me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, two short stories, one in Tagalog and the other in Hiligaynon, and selected poems including Balagtas' Florante at Laura. (I delivered this paper to the West London Gastronomico and Philosophical Society, UK on 10 November 2020.)
Politics and literature have had a long and uneasy relationship in the Philippines, where creative writers and journalists have been the bane of an almost unbroken succession of colonial rulers, despots, autocrats, and dictators. While the influence of traditional literary forms may have declined , non-traditional forms have taken up the slack, and the expressive literary imagination continues to be a significant political force in Philippine society today.

Necessary Fictions examines the intimate but fraught connection between Philippine literature and nationalist discourse during the post-war period. Through close readings of the fiction of Jose Rizal, Amado Hernandez, Nick Joaquin, Edgardo Reyes, Ricardo Lee, Kerima Polotan, Carlos Bulosan, and Mano de Verdades Posadas, this book argues that the long-standing affinity between Philippine literature and nationalism is rooted in part on the power of literature to formulate, and work through, a set of questions that are central to nationalist debates on the possibility and necessity of social change: What is the relationship between knowledge and action? between the personal and the political? between the foreign and the Filipino? between culture and history, culture and politics, culture and economics? Moreover, Philippine literature does not merely illuminate and deepen our understanding of the fundamental assumptions which inform nationalist discourse and practice. It also registers the contradictions which exceed nationalist attempts to intervene, intellectually and politically, in the complex realities at work in Philippine society. These “excesses”, which bear the ineradicable signatures of the oppressed and the marginalized, expose the anxieties—and the liberatory potential—underpinning the difficult creation of Philippine modernity in the twentieth century and beyond.

This paper is concerned with evaluating the teachers’ familiarity and awareness of the different literary lenses in the light of the teaching literature. This study explored the lived experiences of teachers in teaching the core subject of 21st Century Literature of the Philippines and the World in Senior High School. This research utilized the descriptive phenomenological design, in order to explain the lived experiences of the five Senior High School Literature teachers using an interview guide questionnaire. Significant themes were inserted that emerged after gathering the data, namely: Theme 1: I find ways, Theme 2: I feel Lit!, Theme 3: I teach through lenses. In conclusion, the literature provides unlimited opportunities for students to express themselves and to learn best with appreciation and critical analysis. Furthermore, the use of literary lenses in senior high school is necessary for the references and in the instruction to be efficient in analyzing literary works.

ABSTRACT This paper is entitled “A Psychoanalytic and Socio-Cultural Study of Ten Short Stories by Nine Filipino Authors: Implications to the Teaching of Basic Literature Courses”. It underwent in-depth analyses using Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory and Lev Vygotsky’s Socio-Cultural Theory. The study reveals that: (a) Three of the ten short stories presented eroticism through recollection; one used dialogue while the rest presented eroticism through a full descriptive-narrative manner: (b) Heat, Midsummer and Desire highlighted on desire and attraction for opposite sex; The Other Regina, Ang Himas Ni Ricardo, Sila, Isang Hapon, and Fairy Tale For the City called for acceptance and intimacy while The Night I Cry highlighted eroticism thru incestuous acts. Suite Bergamasque displayed eroticism to free the character from all anguish and emotional turmoil while Summer Solstice did so through the dominance women had over men. (c) Five of the stories, Summer Solstice, Suite Bergamasque, Heat, Midsummer, and Desire are deemed suitable to be included in the teaching of basic literature courses while The Night I Cry, the Other Regina, The Fairy Tale For the City, Ang Himas Ni Ricardo and Sila, Isang Hapon may not because they depict very graphic descriptions and narrations of the sexual encounters of the characters. They are therefore not fit to be included in the teaching of the basic literature courses. It is concluded that for every erotic undertone in all of the stories, there is always a rational motivation behind it and that the socio-cultural milieu may have a very legitimate effect, too. The study recommends the following: 1) For future researchers to replicate this study using the same approach for analysis but on other Philippine short stories with erotic elements in them. 2) This study may also be replicated using a different approach for analysis for other Philippine short stories with erotic elements in them. 3) A similar study using the same or a different type of approach but focusing on another genre of literature such as Filipino poetry or novels with erotic undertones.

Health and illness as themes are uncommonly being touched in literature classrooms. Other than the lack of interdisciplinary studies or specialists in this field in the Philippines, often teachers are also confronted with tons of materials that they are either overwhelmed to teach or find it difficult to deliver on their classes. This is the goal of this paper, help teachers gain confidence and basic knowledge of teaching literature that discusses health and illness especially at this time of history. Helping both teachers and students to understand and appreciate literature as a space for developing empathy while also honing their communicative and critical thinking skills. This paper will execute this goal by providing teachers in high school a guide in teaching literature that tackles health and illness using Philippine literature. I will translate theories and concepts from other studies into easy and clear language that teachers and students will find accessible to learn and us...

"When I attribute inspirational value to works of literature I mean that these works make people think that there is more to this life than they had ever imagined."-Richard Rorty
There are many models of English teacher and there are competing ideas about the aims of English teaching. But I am not going to discuss them or even suggest that one is better over the other, because every teaching context is different, every literary text is different and every theory to interpret the literary text is different. These topics of discussion have been longstanding and continuing but it is not my intention to provide answers for all these issues. Rather it is my intention to debate the importance of reading literary texts in the English language classes and suggest an alternative way to read literary works.

From time to time the need or value of teaching literature in the language class has been questioned. This article reviews and qualifies the arguments for and against teaching literature before defending such teaching on three grounds: 1. literature can enhance language learning at primary level since the cognitive processes of young learners are particularly adept at dealing with narrative structures; 2. literature written in the target language or translated into the target language may give learners insight into other non-target language cultures, thus preparing them to act competently and appropriately in future dealings with representatives from those cultures; 3. literature’s contents may well be truer to life and more relevant to learners than typical textbook topics.

The study aimed to explore the Localized Aspects of the Literature in the Linguistic aspects, literary devices, and socio-pragmatic aspect of the language. Qualitative design was used in the analysis of the literary text which includes textual analysis of the four literary works of Amador T. Daguio. Textual analysis of the four literary texts of Amador T. Daguio was done to analyze and interpret the status of the language in terms of its linguistic aspects, literary aspects, and socio-pragmatic aspects of the language. Based on the textual analysis, the following conclusions are drawn: The study revealed that in the localized aspects of the language in terms of lexical and syntactic level, Most Filipino authors depict rich cultural environment in their literary writings. In terms of the literary aspect of the language, the dominant literary device used was “simile” to show the rich and specific culture values, practices, emotions, and other realities of rural Filipino life. In the socio-pragmatic aspects of the language, the most prevailing aspect of ethnography of communication in the selected literary works is “setting or scene” showing the actual place and over all location of the situation happened in the stories as emphasized as to where and how the characters interact or communicate. The following recommendations were formulated based on the textual analysis and conclusions of the study. Literature teachers should have relevant and sufficient background knowledge to integrate activities in identifying linguistic innovations under lexical and syntactic levels in their lessons and use Iluko literary pieces written in English by Ilocano authors as a springboard in teaching literary devices. Literature teachers should maximize the use of literary texts written in English by Filipinos in learning Filipino values, practices, emotions, and other facets of rural life for them to appreciate their own culture which enables and enhances their appreciation of Ilocano cultures through reading a particular literary text with a touch of their native and rural language which will eventually help them appreciate their own culture. Literary text written in English by Iluko writer with a touch of Ilocano theme and setting should be included in teaching literature in schools in order to understand better the different cultural aspects that were reflected in the different local literary works.

The Philippines is one of the countries rich in culture, characterized by different literary art forms, such as indigenous rituals and folk narratives that are passed on to future generations. However, although there have been recurring studies about these literary pieces, some narratives and fields of literary studies are being neglected, such as Philippine Mythology. Yet, the preservation and recognition of Philippine myths may be resolved through the copious integration of these myths into the academe. In this article, the author introduced the state of literature, mainly folk narratives, in Philippine schools and the nature of myths, including the different mythological creatures present in them. There are many discussions concerning the appreciation of these texts from different articles and studies from prominent authors, yet reliving these myths remains not progressive. Schools are one of the most accessible yet trusted sources of facts and important learning, which also are ...

All of us know the importance and value of good literature in our lives. Right from the stories told by our grandmothers to the great education we receive later in life, literature plays a significant part all throughout. It influences us and makes us understand the ways of life. Narratives, in particular, inspire empathy and lend a whole new perspectives to us and that of others too. This also works with the morals induced within useither directly or by implied means. When one reads literature, one gains insight, knowledge and wisdom, refining our emotions in the process too. In fact, literature is life manifested in myriad forms. Snippets of life are recorded in a script or audio or videowhatever the manner of preserving. We read, hear or see it accordingly to connect with the slice of humanity in it and this in turn, again strengthens our mind, providing immeasurable growth, leading to abilities of thinking beyond the traditional gamut, what one could term as "outside the box". In this manner, literature is a reflection of reality, becoming a product of art when distanced and seen objectively and a window to an ideology. This paper seeks to throw light on the importance of literature and how it imparts human values, thus making it very necessary to be incorporated in each and every syllabus of almost every major stream, whether humanities, social sciences , engineering, management or sciences. The study involves a mixed-methods research design involving student and teacher interviews, avid recipients, questionnaires and lesson observations. The results were quite heartening, suggesting a positive response. The paper concludes by discussing the potential and outreach of literature to every study as well as the minds of its avid recipients, of any age-group, class or creed.

This paper discussed the use of Hispanic poems as sources of Filipino culture and local historical data (directly or indirectly mentioned in the poems), in teaching regional culture (of Bicol) and history. The poems are originally written in Spanish language and are translated into English by Hornedo. The analysis employed qualitative-descriptive approach of literary criticism, anchored on the theory of New Historicism and formalist-contextualist approach. In particular, the analysis delved on the content rather than on form and structure. Findings revealed that the poems are good sources of information about the image of the places in terms of physical and cultural milieu. Furthermore, the poems were found to be reflective of reliable materials in understanding Bicol soil and of the way of life of its inhabitants. These findings suggest that literature and history be taught side by side with original materials from a certain locality that eventually unveil cultural identity.

No one can deny the importance of extensive reading in learning a foreign language and therefore knowing others' literature opens a window on their culture. However, both teachers and learners of a foreign language are faced with the problem of finding the literary texts that are suitable for learning. There are two types or versions of literature to be used. There is the simplified text where there are modifications at the level of the difficult words and expressions in order to render them good material for language learning as well as to make the learner accustomed to more and more words, syntax and structure patterns of the new language. There is a second type of literary text which is shortened by cutting off all the words, sometimes even paragraphs that might be spared without reducing the value of the work as literature. (P.Gurvey, 1970) This distinction of what type of literary text should be chosen for learning a foreign language is very important. While the simplified text is appropriate for easy reading and excellent language learning, the shortened text is the most suitable material for integrating students into a foreign culture, customs and thoughts which contribute to the learner's education. Key Words: foreign language – literature – simplified text – shortened text-culture
