Querida: An Anthology

Anvil Publishing, 2013

Caroline S. Hau, Katrina Tuvera and Isabelita O. Reyes
ISBN 978-971-27-2816-7

This anthology spans one hundred and twenty-five years of literary portrayals of “the mistress” and its variants, from Jose Rizal’s Doña Consolacion in Noli me Tangere to Angela Manalang Gloria’s nameless “other woman,” and Ricardo Lee, Raquel Villavicencio and Ishmael Bernal’s Marilou in Relasyon. Querida offers not only a feast of prose, poetry and drama from the Philippines’ most accomplished and distinguished authors as well as talented emerging writers, but also insights into what Lina Espina-Moore calls the beloved’s “illicit, illegal lives.”

With works by Dean Francis Alfar, Estrella Alfon, Jose Dalisay Jr., Ricardo M. de Ungria, Aida Rivera Ford, Nick Joaquin, Kerima Polotan, Lakambini Sitoy and others
