History of Negros
Oriental
Learning Outcomes
 A deep understanding of our Local
Negrense Literature
 The Historical development of
literature in Dumaguete and Negros
Oriental
 The Key personality in the
development of Literature in the
Province of Negros Oriental
Visayan Literature in Pre-Colonial
Philippines
 Spanish accounts are unanimous in saying that Filipinos
did not use their alphabet for literary compositions or
records keeping: the Boxer Codex states unambiguously
that they used their script only for letters and messages.
Visayan literature therefore was oral literature, and as
such, was not recorded by friar chroniclers or
ethnographers who would have considered the idea of
oral literature a contradiction in terms. But it was well
developed, sophisticated, and presented by artists
rewarded for their skills. This is amply shown by Alcina’s
(1668a, 3:20) chapter, “Concerning the alphabet and
manner of writing of the Bisayans [and] the various and
particular types of poetry in which they take pride,”
which includes the full summary of what must have been
an actual epic.
Pre- Colonial Literature
 Catalina of Dumaguete
 Legend of Hari Laon
 The Story of Sicalac and Sikavay
 Lili-lli
 Dandansoy
Spanish Era
Rizal Novela
 Noli Me Tangere  El Filibusterismo
American Rule
A Woman's Journey through the Philippines
by Florence Kimball Russel
 This is a pre-1923 historical
reproduction that was curated for
quality. Quality assurance was
conducted on each of these books
in an attempt to remove books
with imperfections introduced by
the digitization process. Though we
have made best efforts - the books
may have occasional errors that do
not impede the reading
experience.
 We believe this work is culturally
important and have elected to
bring the book back into print as
part of our continuing commitment
to the preservation of printed
works worldwide.
Desire for freedom and Free Education
Love of country
Fight against colonialism and imperialism
This is a piece from 1907, from a page of The
Silliman Truth [the March 15 issue]
 The 1900s served not just as campus paper for what
was then Silliman Institute but also a community
newspaper [one of the first in the province] and a
Protestant missionary publication. This page contains
what I think is an unsigned short story in Spanish titled
"Una Palabra a Tiempo," probably the first one
published in the province. The Silliman Truth,
however, was first published in 1903, predating The
Filipino Student Magazine by two years. (That
magazine is supposedly the first publication in English
by Filipinos). Alas, we don't have copies of the
Silliman Truth from that year anymore, but if we do
come across any -- and if it contains any literary work
in the new colonial language -- we can effectively
rewrite the history of Philippine literature in English
Academic Influences in literature and
teaching English as a second language
 Silliman University 1901
 St. Paul University Dumaguete 1904
 University of the Philippines 1908
French Literature was introduced by St. Paul College
Cebuano Literature
 Vicente Rama  Vicente Sotto
Japanese Occupation
World War II Literature
 Between 1941-1945, Philippine Literature was interrupted in its development
when the Philippines was again conquered by another foreign country, Japan.
Philippine literature in English came to a halt. Except for the TRIBUNE and
the PHILIPPINE REVIEW, almost all newspapers in English were stopped by the
Japanese.
 This had an advantageous effect on Filipino Literature, which experienced
renewed attention because writers in English turned to writing in Filipino.
Juan Laya, who use to write in English turned to Filipino because of the strict
prohibitions of the Japanese regarding any writing in English.
Dumaguete during the War
 St. Paul Academy ( now a University) was the only
school in the Visayas area opened the school for a
few children with the SPC nuns teaching French
Language and French Literature at the time.
 Serafin Perez was the School Principal and
ENGLISH Teacher during the War in Public school
system in Dumaguete
 Adult classes in Nipongo JAPANESE LANGUAGE
were opened in Bais and Tanjay
First Reading Club

 First editor of Sands and Coral
Literary Journal
Sands & Coral
First released in
1945, Sands &
Coral is one of
the oldest literary
journals in the
country.
Salvador Abcede
 This is Nita by Salvador Abcede, a book which calls itself a “historical novel
by the man who was there when the momentous events were happening,”
meaning to say Negros Oriental during World War II. It continues: “The story
is wove around a love story which depicts the life and conditions of the
people of Negros in their heroic struggle and sacrifices during the Japanese
occupation in World War II in order to resist the Japanese invaders and to
preserve their freedom.” This is a boon to my current research on the
history of Oriental Negrense literature, ad also because Abcede — the ROTC
Commandant of Silliman University when the war broke out in 1941, and
then CO of the 74th Infantry (Negros Sector) of the USAFFE — is not
generally known as a writer, much less a novelist. (He later became CO of
the 20th BCT with the UN forces in the Korean War, with Fidel Ramos and
Benigno Aquino under his command.) Abcede’s Nita and Edilberto K.
Tiempo’s Cry Slaughter (Watch in the Night) would be the two major
Oriental Negrense novels in English dealing with the Japanese Occupation
of the island.

“sugilanons”
 Cebuano folktales is the 1980 effort by ELENA
MAQUISO and SALVADOR VISTA to gather “sugilanons”
(Cebuano for stories) from around Negros Oriental.
Their effort was published in book form in 1980
under the title MGA SUGILANON SA NEGROS, edited
by Maquiso. (The out-of-print volume is so rare, only
one copy is left at the Silliman Library.) The
book, comprising thirty folktales, is the result of the
research of Vista’s Folklore Class in 1977-1978, “six
members of whom went to the different towns of
Negros Oriental and recorded the tales as told to
them in Cebuano, either on tapes or through direct
writing,” Maquiso wrote in her preface.

 He was. People know him as a

time, in the 1950s and 1960s, he was
an award-winning writer. That school
project became this book, Cupful of
Anger, Bottle Full of Smoke: The

Merlie Alunan's "The Bells Count in Our Blood" remains one of the best poems written
about Martial Law. First published in 1988 in the pages of The Sillimanian Magazine, it tells
us about the horrors of those dark days and the disappearance of one activist priest.
 “Every night at 8:00 we shall ring the bells for Father Romano,
and we shall continue to do so until he is found.”
~ The Redemptorist Community,
Dumaguete City, September 1985
Every night just as we settle
To coffee or a mug of cold beer,
They ring the bells—
A crisp quick flurry first, then
Decorous as in a knell, ten counts.
Into the darkness newly fallen
The cadence calls for a brother lost.
At home as we try to wash off
With music and a little loving
The grime of markets from our souls—
The day’s trading of truth for bread,
Masks of honor, guises of peace—
The clear sounds infusing the air
Deny us the salve of forgetting.
We know for what they lost him,
Why expedient tyrants required
His name effaced, his bones hidden.
As we bend over the heads of children
Fighting sleep, not quite done with play,
The bells vibrating remind us how
Our fears conspires to seal his doom.
 We could say to the ringers:
Your bells won’t bring him back,
But just supposing that it could,
What would you have?
A body maimed, perhaps, beyond belief—
Toes and fingers gone, teeth missing,
Tongue cut off, memory hacked witless.
The nights in our town
Are flavored with the dread
The bells salt down measured
From their tall dark tower.
It falls upon our raw minds wanting sleep.
Shall we stop them?
Though we smart
We know they keep us from decay.
Shared in this keening,
A rhythm beating all night long
In our veins, truth is truth still
Though unworried. The bells
Count in our blood the heart of all
We must restore. Tomorrow, we vow,
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.

  • 2. Learning Outcomes  A deep understanding of our Local Negrense Literature  The Historical development of literature in Dumaguete and Negros Oriental  The Key personality in the development of Literature in the Province of Negros Oriental
  • 3. Visayan Literature in Pre-Colonial Philippines  Spanish accounts are unanimous in saying that Filipinos did not use their alphabet for literary compositions or records keeping: the Boxer Codex states unambiguously that they used their script only for letters and messages. Visayan literature therefore was oral literature, and as such, was not recorded by friar chroniclers or ethnographers who would have considered the idea of oral literature a contradiction in terms. But it was well developed, sophisticated, and presented by artists rewarded for their skills. This is amply shown by Alcina’s (1668a, 3:20) chapter, “Concerning the alphabet and manner of writing of the Bisayans [and] the various and particular types of poetry in which they take pride,” which includes the full summary of what must have been an actual epic.
  • 4. Pre- Colonial Literature  Catalina of Dumaguete  Legend of Hari Laon  The Story of Sicalac and Sikavay  Lili-lli  Dandansoy
  • 6.
  • 7. Rizal Novela  Noli Me Tangere  El Filibusterismo
  • 9. A Woman's Journey through the Philippines by Florence Kimball Russel  This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience.  We believe this work is culturally important and have elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.
  • 10. Desire for freedom and Free Education Love of country Fight against colonialism and imperialism
  • 11. This is a piece from 1907, from a page of The Silliman Truth [the March 15 issue]  The 1900s served not just as campus paper for what was then Silliman Institute but also a community newspaper [one of the first in the province] and a Protestant missionary publication. This page contains what I think is an unsigned short story in Spanish titled "Una Palabra a Tiempo," probably the first one published in the province. The Silliman Truth, however, was first published in 1903, predating The Filipino Student Magazine by two years. (That magazine is supposedly the first publication in English by Filipinos). Alas, we don't have copies of the Silliman Truth from that year anymore, but if we do come across any -- and if it contains any literary work in the new colonial language -- we can effectively rewrite the history of Philippine literature in English
  • 12. Academic Influences in literature and teaching English as a second language  Silliman University 1901  St. Paul University Dumaguete 1904  University of the Philippines 1908
  • 13. French Literature was introduced by St. Paul College
  • 14. Cebuano Literature  Vicente Rama  Vicente Sotto
  • 16. World War II Literature  Between 1941-1945, Philippine Literature was interrupted in its development when the Philippines was again conquered by another foreign country, Japan. Philippine literature in English came to a halt. Except for the TRIBUNE and the PHILIPPINE REVIEW, almost all newspapers in English were stopped by the Japanese.  This had an advantageous effect on Filipino Literature, which experienced renewed attention because writers in English turned to writing in Filipino. Juan Laya, who use to write in English turned to Filipino because of the strict prohibitions of the Japanese regarding any writing in English.
  • 17. Dumaguete during the War  St. Paul Academy ( now a University) was the only school in the Visayas area opened the school for a few children with the SPC nuns teaching French Language and French Literature at the time.  Serafin Perez was the School Principal and ENGLISH Teacher during the War in Public school system in Dumaguete  Adult classes in Nipongo JAPANESE LANGUAGE were opened in Bais and Tanjay

  • 21. Sands & Coral First released in 1945, Sands & Coral is one of the oldest literary journals in the country.
  • 22.
  • 23. Salvador Abcede  This is Nita by Salvador Abcede, a book which calls itself a “historical novel by the man who was there when the momentous events were happening,” meaning to say Negros Oriental during World War II. It continues: “The story is wove around a love story which depicts the life and conditions of the people of Negros in their heroic struggle and sacrifices during the Japanese occupation in World War II in order to resist the Japanese invaders and to preserve their freedom.” This is a boon to my current research on the history of Oriental Negrense literature, ad also because Abcede — the ROTC Commandant of Silliman University when the war broke out in 1941, and then CO of the 74th Infantry (Negros Sector) of the USAFFE — is not generally known as a writer, much less a novelist. (He later became CO of the 20th BCT with the UN forces in the Korean War, with Fidel Ramos and Benigno Aquino under his command.) Abcede’s Nita and Edilberto K. Tiempo’s Cry Slaughter (Watch in the Night) would be the two major Oriental Negrense novels in English dealing with the Japanese Occupation of the island.

  • 33. “sugilanons”  Cebuano folktales is the 1980 effort by ELENA MAQUISO and SALVADOR VISTA to gather “sugilanons” (Cebuano for stories) from around Negros Oriental. Their effort was published in book form in 1980 under the title MGA SUGILANON SA NEGROS, edited by Maquiso. (The out-of-print volume is so rare, only one copy is left at the Silliman Library.) The book, comprising thirty folktales, is the result of the research of Vista’s Folklore Class in 1977-1978, “six members of whom went to the different towns of Negros Oriental and recorded the tales as told to them in Cebuano, either on tapes or through direct writing,” Maquiso wrote in her preface.

  • 42. Merlie Alunan's "The Bells Count in Our Blood" remains one of the best poems written about Martial Law. First published in 1988 in the pages of The Sillimanian Magazine, it tells us about the horrors of those dark days and the disappearance of one activist priest.  “Every night at 8:00 we shall ring the bells for Father Romano, and we shall continue to do so until he is found.” ~ The Redemptorist Community, Dumaguete City, September 1985 Every night just as we settle To coffee or a mug of cold beer, They ring the bells— A crisp quick flurry first, then Decorous as in a knell, ten counts. Into the darkness newly fallen The cadence calls for a brother lost. At home as we try to wash off With music and a little loving The grime of markets from our souls— The day’s trading of truth for bread, Masks of honor, guises of peace— The clear sounds infusing the air Deny us the salve of forgetting. We know for what they lost him, Why expedient tyrants required His name effaced, his bones hidden. As we bend over the heads of children Fighting sleep, not quite done with play, The bells vibrating remind us how Our fears conspires to seal his doom.
  • 43.  We could say to the ringers: Your bells won’t bring him back, But just supposing that it could, What would you have? A body maimed, perhaps, beyond belief— Toes and fingers gone, teeth missing, Tongue cut off, memory hacked witless. The nights in our town Are flavored with the dread The bells salt down measured From their tall dark tower. It falls upon our raw minds wanting sleep. Shall we stop them? Though we smart We know they keep us from decay. Shared in this keening, A rhythm beating all night long In our veins, truth is truth still Though unworried. The bells Count in our blood the heart of all We must restore. Tomorrow, we vow, Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.
