Abstract

Excerpt

In spite of significant work in literary criticism, prose fiction, and poetry, Manuel A . Viray has a low profile in Philippine letters. If we are asked to name prominent Filipino poets, we are likely to think of Villa , Demetillo, and Angeles; we are unlikely to think of Viray. If we are to list notable prose writers, the list may be headed by Joaquin, Santos, and Linda Casper, not Viray. If we specify widely-known critics, perhaps Leonard Casper, Hosillos, and Bernad come immediately to mind; Viray probably will not. 1 Yet Viray has produced work worthy of comparison with these more visible writers.
