The Second was when the Americans granted us our independence on July 4, 1946. This period, January 2, 1981, was the Third Republic when we were freed from Military Rule. During this period, it cannot be denied that many people seethed with rebellion and protest because of the continued oppression and suppression. This was further aggravated when former Senator Benigno S. Aquno Jr. , the idol of the Filipino masses, whom they hoped to be the next president, was president, was brutally murdered on August 21, 1983. This stage of the nation had its effect on our literature.
After the Aquino assassinated, the people’s voices could no long be contained. Both the public and private sectors in government were chanting, and shouting; women, men and the youth became bolder and their voices were raised in dissent. THE PALANCA AWARDS -The Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for literature – launched in 1950 (see Chapter 7, The Renaissance Period) – continued its recognition of the best in the literary fields – poetry, short story, essays, and the one and three-act plays. In 1981, the winners were the following:
In 1985, those who won were: First Prize:“The Hand of God” by Conrado de Quiros First Prize:“A Novel Prize for Jorge” by Eli Ang Barroso No awards for second prize Third Prize:“Mecca of the East” by Charles Loong In 1984, the Palanca Awards started choosing the best in novel writing. This contest, held every three years, gives time for local writers to write more beautiful and quality works. The next contest on the best novel was held in 1987. La Tondena continues to be its sponsor. B. FILIPINO POETRY
Poems during this period of the Third Republic were romantic and revolutionary. Writers wrote openly of their criticism against the government. The supplications of the people were coached in fiery, colorful, violent, profane and insulting language. Many Filipino songs dealt with themes that were really true-to-life like those of grief, poverty, aspirations for freedom, love of God, of country and of fellowmen. Composers grieved over Ninoy Aquino’s treacherous assassination composed songs. Among them were: ? Coritha, Eric and Freddie Aguilar.
