Descripción

1st Printing. 224 pages. Published in 1982. Retrospective collection of plays. The first appearance of the titles in a Hardcover Omnibus Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original and as Volume 19 of the Queensland University Press' now-legendary "Asian and Pacific Writing" Series. The second such volume to be devoted to the author, the first being "Tropical Gothic: Selected Stories" (Volume 1). Introduction by both the General Editors and Jeremy Beckett, an Australian scholar on Philippine and Asian literature. Glossary of Philippine terms appended at the beginning. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in Australia to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents, in one collectible volume, Nick Joaquin's "Tropical Baroque". Four of Nick Joaquin's finest and most representative plays. "A Portrait of The Artist As Filipino", the greatest Philippine play in English, "Tatarin", "Fathers and Sons", and "The Beatas". Despite the very uneven quality of his oversize body of work, Nick Joaquin remains one of the most provocative, most insightful, and most universal Philippine writers of our time. While it obviously helps to have an understanding of the historical and cultural context behind his works, the works themselves are about history and context albeit in the author's highly idiosyncratic and Baroque-flamboyant style. Joaquin is both a Universalist and a Nationalist. His central insight is that every modern culture is "Creole", none more so than his beloved Philippines. His stubborn resistance to attempts by well-meaning nationalists to purify the Philippine "soul" of foreign influences is now universally regarded as having been right all along. By way of contrast, one need not look very far indeed: Pol Pot imagined and implemented a Cambodian "purification" project (as did Mao's Cultural Revolution), with catastrophic effects, a tragedy and barbarism of genocidal proportions. A National Artist, Joaquin will be remembered for one masterly novel, "The Woman Who Had Two Navels" (first published in its entirety by The Partisan Review in 1959), the essays in "Culture and History" and "A Question of Heroes", his short stories, and these four plays. An absolute "must-have" title for Nick Joaquin collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: ALL other copies available online are the Softcover Edition and have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest Philippine writers in English of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 0702216437. N° de ref. de la librería 8167
