This is a good reference material for Philippine poetry in English written during the 1900s to the late 1940s. Gemino Abad provides a rather comprehensive introduction to Philippine poetry, including his own take on Philippine writing in English. It includes notes on the individual poems included in the anthology, biographical sketches/profiles on the writers, and a listing of publications since 1905.
