Daluyong is a novel written by Lazaro Francisco and first serialized in 1962 in Liwayway magazine. It was published as a novel by the Ateneo de Manila Universit Press in 1986.[1][2]

This book is a sequel to Francisco’s earlier work Maganda Pa ang Daigdig and is his last novel. The story revolves around the vague and difficult future that awaits those who want a meaningful change in society.


Lino becomes the rival of Attorney Benong, son of Don Tito. Benong offers Lino a chance to work for him, but Lino chooses instead to cultivate and develop the land which was given to him by a priest, Father Amando. Benong runs for election and promises to change the system. A conflict arises between Benong and Lino's group. Benong is defeated.[3]


Liwayway magazine published a few lines from the pasyon, a religious text  often told during Holy Week, a few weeks before the publication of the first installment of Daluyong, to announce its upcoming publication. It illustrates nature’s fury, which reflects conflicts in an unjust system.[1][2]

Sa dagat magsisibangon

Mataas na daluyong –

Kagila-gitlang ugong

Ang lupa’y malilinggatong

Halos tabunan ng alon.
