-Fernando M. Maramag became an editor of The Manila Tribune and was one of the most brilliant writers in English during his time. He was born on January 21, 1893 at Ilagan, Isabela. He was educated in Isabela highschool, Philipine Normal School, and University of the Philippines. The Rural Maid was one of his earlier poems. Maramag’s Moonlight on Manila Bay reflects the emotion of the persona who, as can be concluded in the first few lines of the poem, is most likely describing how the Manila Bay looks like during nighttime. Or perhaps, the persona is simply recalling the breathtaking seascape from memory and retelling it – either way, there is the concept of reminiscence and appreciation. However, one must also note the choice of words that the poet used in portraying the Manila Bay Carlos Bulosan
