Poet Cirilo Bautista: Epic troubadour

 

Rare in a nation of half-baked artistic careers and unfulfilled literary promise, Cirilo F. Bautista has shown a remarkable dedication to the literary arts both as a writer of monumental vision and unfailing craft and as an indefatigable model teacher of literature.


Mr. Bautista’s path-breaking writings represent key guideposts in the evolution and fruition of contemporary Filipino literature in English. Particularly in poetry, he has shown a mastery of the English language, much like what the late National Artist José Garcia Villa did among the first generation of Filipino writers in English.

If you can, visit the places you write about

I know this is impractical for some readers of this blog, but for stirring the imagination, nothing beats the experience of walking in the footsteps of your characters. When I wrote Powder Monkey, about a boy in Nelson’s Navy, I got half a book worth of ideas from a single afternoon aboard an early 19th century frigate. (HMSTrincomalee, in Hartlepool, UK.)
