Abstract

Excerpt

Alfredo O. Cuenca, Jr. has managed, by dint of two titles for the same book review - "Hufana in Excelsis" and "Alex in Wonderland" - to encompass the differing critical reactions to the literary works of Alejandrino G. Hufana.1 Amongst Hufana's admirers are Francisco Arcellana; The Committee on the Humanities, University of the East; Florentino Dauz; and Guillermo C. De Vega.2 But more numerous and generally more vehement are his detractors, including Joseph A. Galdon, S.J.; Teofilo Del Castillo Y. Tuazon and Buenventura S. Medina, Jr.; Ricaredo Demetillo; Esperanza V. Manuel and Resil B. Mojares; Sister Marie-Laurentina; and possibly Leo Cullum.3
