Edited by David Jonathan Y. Bayot, Salungat: A Soledad S. Reyes Reader is a compilation of essays by one of the Philippines’ foremost critics, Soledad S. Reyes. Through her writings, she has challenged established norms that reshaped scholarly discourse on critical practice, Tagalog novels, women’s literary production, and popular culture.
This reader encapsulates Reyes’s provocative engagement with Philippine literary and cultural studies for more than 30 years. Her journey and crucial contributions to the field are outlined by Bayot in his introduction. As a resource, Salungat is indispensable for scholars and enthusiasts navigating the intersections of Philippine postcolonial, women’s, and cultural studies.
