The Well of Time. Eighteen Short Stories from Philippine Contemporary Literature.
Laygo, Teresito M., Comp.
A collection of eighteen short stories by Filipino writers is presented. The selections represent a variety of images of Filipino culture, both urban and rural, and life styles in northern and southern Philippines. The aim of the anthology is that the student will learn to empathize with experience rendered in language, appreciate the Filipino writer's art and craft, and understand the short story as a literary form. These stories are intended to be taught in grades 9-12 in a bilingual education setting. The book is divided into four sections: (1) Home and Country, (2) Of Identity and Family, (3) A Sense of History, and (4) Of Change and Values. Stories by the following authors are included: Narciso G. Reyes, Carlos Bulosan, Bienvenido N. Santos, N.V.M. Gonzales, Manuel E. Arguilla, Aida Rivera Ford, Roman A. de la Cruz, Rogelio R. Sikat, J.
