Philippine Folk Literature: The Proverbs
Author: Eugenio, Damiana L.;
Philippine Folk Literature: The Proverbs is Volume VI of the author's eight-volume Philippine Folk Literature Series.

The present collection focuses on the proverb—a terse didactic statement, handed down through generations, the wisdom of many and the wit of one. It ordinarily suggests a course of action or passes judgment on a situation.

This work is a national collection of Philippine proverbs—a putting together of available proverbs from allover the country, listed alphabetically, in dictionary fashion, according to the most significant word in their English translation. Thirty-six Philippine languages are represented in this collection.

As an introduction to the collection, the essay "Philippine Proverb Lore," is reprinted , to provide readers with an overview.

For each entry, the following kinds of information are given: (1) the English translation, (2) the proverb in its original Philippine language or languages, (3) language label and source (collector/collections); and (4) foreign parallels, if any.

For sale only in the U.S. and its dependencies, Canada, and Mexico.
