The Critical Villa: Essays in Literary Criticism
Editor: Chua, Jonathan;
"Jose Garcia Villa’s annual ‘roll of honor’ and critical essays over the period of literary ferment in English, from 1927 to 1940, here gathered for the first time in a formidable work of meticulous scholarship, show not only the fascinating evolution of Filipino fiction and poetry but the formation as well of taste and a critical tradition which to the present govern our literature. Jonathan Chua’s superb introduction and annotations offer a most helpful perspective which enables the general reader to appreciate and judge fairly not only the critic Villa and his canon but also the entire course of our early literary efforts in English." --Gémino H. Abad

"The uh_product of several years of painstaking research and scrupulous documentary editing, The Critical Villa signals a long-overdue revival in the appreciation of Jose Garcia Villa’s singular impact on modern Philippine poetry and literary traditions and confirms the encompassing reach of Villa’s legacy beyond Filipino-English writing and poetics." --Oscar V. Campomanes
