Philippine Literature


Oral folk stories and proverbs passed down in various dialects of the islands are what Philippine literature consisted of before the arrival of the Spanish.  During the Spanish colonial period, the literature that was written was for the most part religious.  Philippine literature expanded under the American influence to include genres such as short stories and drama.

 

Jose Rizal, a novelist; Jose Garcia Villa, a poet and outstanding short story writer; Nock Joaquin, a poet, playwright and novelist, Claro Recto, a people and playwright; Franciso Balagtas, a poet and philosopher; and Pas Marques Beitnz, a writer of short stories are all notable contributors to Filipino literature.
