La India Elegante y El Negrito Amante at ilang maikling tula
In this poetry collection, Francisco Balagtas is liberated from the linear and uniform rhythm of colonial-era poetry. Through the 12 featured poems, the poet masterfully toys with the Filipino language, exuding a rebellious spirit that embraces fresh and transformative metaphors.
Francisco Balagtas, revered as the “Prince of Tagalog Poets” (“Prinsipe ng Makatang Tagalog”), earned this title through his magnum opus, Florante at Laura. He garnered admiration from luminaries such as Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio.
