why do we need to study philippine drama

While the indigenous language of the Philippines is Tagalog, it was not until the Spanish government brought free public education to the archipelago in 1863 that literacy became widespread and literature became a possible area of emphasis in the Philippine culture. Early Philippine poems included corridos and awit, two types of poems meant to provide entertainment and edification. "The Panunuluyan" was written in Tagalog and is the dramatization of Mary and Joseph's quest to reach Bethlehem. "Cenaculo" dramatizes the final day of the life of Jesus Christ, while "Salubong" puts the meeting of the risen Jesus and Mary on the stage.

Secular dramas included "The Karagatan," which is a play about the courage of men trying to win the hand of a young woman. Modern writers of note include Claro Mayo Recto and Wenceslao Retana in essay and drama, as well as Guillermo Gomez Wyndham and Antonio M. Abad in fiction.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.

Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication. Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.

For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available. Terms Related to the Moving Wall Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive. Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title. Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.
