Revaluation 1997: Essays on Philippine Literature, Cinema & Popular Culture
This is a compilation of Bienvenido Lumbera’s critical essays on Philippine literature, cinema, and popular culture between 1962 and 1984. This is an impressive survey of Philippine culture as reinterpreted – and revaluated – by an important critic and teacher who has exercised a strong influence on Philippine cultural scholarship.
The 1997 edition adds 22 new articles and an interview to the original 13 essays of the 1974 edition, all hallmarks of Lumbera’s consistent nationalist and democratic outlook.
