2004 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR HISTORICAL BIOGRAPHY

The book is the first of its kind in Philippine scholarship. It chronicles the evolution of Philippine literature simultaneously in terms of medium (English) and gender (women). In addition, the book proposes hypotheses regarding the whys and wherefores of this specific segment of our literature.

Researchers and readers alike will find this volume an invaluable source of information regarding the Filipino women who have made significant contributions to the birthing and development of Philippine literature in English. The selective bibliography of works by and about Filipino women writers in English is an indispensable checklist. Given the worldwide interest in women's literature, particularly those in postcolonial countries such as the Philippines, this book is timely addition to this field of feminist scholarship.

Among the women featured here are Paz Marquez Benitez, Paz Latorena, Loreto Paras-Sulit, Angela Manalang-Gloria, Trinidad Tarrosa-Subido, Edith Tiempo, Virginia Moreno, Tita Lacambra-Ayala, Ophelia Alcantara Dimalanta, Estrella Alfon, Kerima Polotan-Tuvera, Aida Rivera-Ford, Gilda Cordero-Fernando, Linda Ty-Casper, Myrna Peña-Reyes, Merlie Alunan, Marra PL. Lanot, Rowena Tiempo-Torrevillas, Marjorie Evasco, Elsa Coscolluela, Merlinda Bobis, Fatima Lim-Wilson, Luisa Igloria, Lina Espina-Moore, Ester Vallado DaRoy, Azucena Grajo Uranza, Cristina Pantoja-Hidalgo, Ninotchka Rosca, Jessica Hagedorn, Cecilia Manguerra-Brainard, Arlene Chai, Gina Apostol, Michelle Skinner, Tess Uriza Holthe, Rosario Lucero, Ines Taccad Cammayo, Marianne Villanueva, Nita Umali-Berthelsen, Joy Dayrit, Jessica Zafra, Connie Jan Maraan, Susan Lara, Lakambini Sitoy, Norma Miraflor, Reine Arcache Melvin, Erma Cuizon, and Nadine Sarreal.
