The same thing is true with the discussion questions which are well planned to address crucial elements in the works. Because each unit usually crosses literary genre, there is an interesting variable strategy through which a theme is developed and articulated. The literary selections- which include the predictable and the canonical, as well as the unexpected and the new – have been carefully and astutely chosen to reflect the wide geographical and linguistic origin of the work. Overall, the work is an interesting, focused, accessible representation of our Philippine literatures. width="20" valign="bottom" style="color:#B2B7F2;font-size:{{#switch:280% 10px=20px 30px=60px 40px=80px 50px=100px 60px=120px

It captures the transformations of critical wisdom in recent literary study and is oriented toward the inculcation of higher order critical thinking tools and skills in students. This book puts UST at the cutting edge of literary pedagogy in the Philippines. width="20" valign="bottom" style="color:#B2B7F2;font-size:{{#switch:280% 10px=20px 30px=60px 40px=80px 50px=100px 60px=120px

It is infused with a pioneering spirit that is admirable, and its editors should be congratulated for their courage and creativity. It is a significant book, even monumental is some aspects. width="20" valign="bottom" style="color:#B2B7F2;font-size:{{#switch:280% 10px=20px 30px=60px 40px=80px 50px=100px 60px=120px
