  • MY ANCESTORS IN THE REVOLUTION


    Published in National Midweek, Vol. 1, No. 28, July 2, 1986

    July 2, 1986

    A book by William Henry Scott, Ilocano Responses to American Aggression 1900-1901 (Quezon City, New Day Publishers, 1986), save from almost total oblivion the just and heroic struggle of the Ilocanos against the US imperialism which reached the Ilocos at the turn of the century.

  • A BORDERLESS BROTHERHOOD: Exploring A Planetary Consciousness In Revolutionary Literature


    Noelle Marie Fianza Sanidad
    Literature 199
    School Year 2014 – 2015
    Professor Ma. Gabriela P. Martin

    Abstract: This paper aims to do a comparative study of the poetry of Jose Maria Sison, the Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines, and Mao Zedong, the founding father of the People’s Republic of China, and present a planetary relationship between the two, both in terms of their poetry and their political ideologies. The paper uses Spivak’s notion of teleopoiesis, the unheimlich, and planetarity as a foundation to reveal a planetary relationship between the two poets through an analysis of the tropes of the peasant soldier and the countryside present in both poet’s works. The paper utilizes the unheimlich as a field for productive difference, estrangement, or alienation that courts Spivak’s notion of planetarity. In terms of a comparative study of Mao and Joma, planetarity presents itself through the unfamiliar, or the un – Filipino that is presented through the Chinese ideals Sison’s poetry because of the influence of Mao Zedong thought.
