PATHFINDER ON PHILIPPINE LITERATURE Scope Note: “Philippine Literature is a diverse and rich group of works that has evolved side by side with the country’s history. Literature has started with fables and legends made by the ancient Filipinos long before the arrival of the Spanish influence. The main themes of Philippine literature focus on the country’s pre-colonial cultural traditions and the sociopolitical histories of its colonial and contemporary traditions.” (Quoted from: http://www.wikipilipinas.org) “Literature is derived from the Latin term litera which means letter. It has been defined differently by various writers.” (Source: Kahayon, Alicia H.; Zulueta Celia A. Philippine literature through the years.
