MIS RECUERDOS DE NICK JOAQUÍN

----Debes conocerle a Nick Joaquín---, me decía Esteban Javellana y Celo, primer novelista Filipino en inglés y primo de segundo grado de mi madre biológica, Lourdes Rivera y Celo. Era 1961. Me encontraba en algo como el segundo año del curso universitario de “comercio” o “perrito mercantil” en la Universidad de San Agustín de Iloílo y mi madre adoptiva, Doña Rosa Jiménez Gayoso de Rivera, me decía, casi a cada rato, que cambiase de curso universitario; que dejase de cursar “comercio” y que me pase a cursar “educación” para luego ser maestro, o profesor, de español. Le obedecí. Empecé a tomar cursos de “educación” mientras ya terminaba el cuarto año de “comercio”, pues la literatura, amén del periodismo, me estaba interesando más y más. Por un lado, mamá Rosita seguia pidiéndome que leyese unos párrafos del Quijote por la mañana, antes de desayunar y antes de irme al colegio. Eran años de verdadera lucha. ! His Amazing Works.

The ancient Iluko writer expressed himself in folk and war songs: in the dallot, a versified exchange of wit between a man and a woman; in the badeng, love song; and, in the dung-aw, the death chant. Even before the coming of the Spaniard in the Ilokos in 1572, Biag ni Lam-ang (Life of Lam-ang), the famous Iloko epic, was believed to have been sung by bards accompanied by the kutibeng, a native guitar. The first book ever published in Iluko was the Iluko version of Cardinal Bellarmine’s Doctrina Christiana, printed in 1621.

In plot, it hews close to the mode of romantic fantasy traceable to the awits, koridos and komedyas of the Balagtas tradition. But it is a symbolical narrative of social, moral and political import. In this, it resembles not only Balagtas but also Rizal, but in style and plot it is closer to Balagtas in not allowing the realistic mode to restrict the element of fantasy. Two novels by writers in English dealt with the war experience: (Medina, p. 194) Stevan Javellana’s Without Seeing the Dawn (1947), and Edilberto Tiempo’s Watch in the Night. The poet Amado Hernandez, who was also union leader and social activist, also wrote novels advocating social change.
