Villa entitled The Essential Villa. Villa, however, went under “self-exile” after the asses, even though he was nominated for several major literary awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

Critical Reception Villa was considered as a powerful literary influence in the Philippines throughout much of the 20th century’, although he had lived cost of his life in the United States. His writing style, as well as his personality and staunch opinions on writing, has often made him considered as an eccentric. Francis explained in Asia week magazine, “In a world of English- language poetry dominated by British and Americans, Villa stood out for the ascetic brilliance of his poetry and for his national origin. ” Fellow Filipino writer Salvador P.
Liberalized Villa as “the one Filipino writer today who it would be futile to deride and impossible to ignore the pace-setter for an entire generation of young writers, the mentor laying down the law for the hole tribe, the patron-saint of a cult of rebellious moderns. “However, Villa was accused of having little faith on the Filipinos’ ability to write creatively in English, saying that “poetry in English has no prospects whatsoever in the Philippines. That it cannot be written by Filipino writers. An exception or two may arise after a long period of time, but these writers will remain exceptions.
The reason why Filipino writers are at a disadvantage in the writing of English poetry is that they have no oneness with the English language. ” In a review to Footnote to Youth, The New York Times wrote, ‘For t least years the name of Jose Garcia Villa has been familiar to the devotees of the experimental short story… They knew, too, that he was an extremely youthful Filipino who had somehow acquired the ability to write a remarkable English prose and who had come to America as a student in the summer of 1930. This comment brought out two opposing impressions of him: as a literary genius, and merely as a writer of English as a second language. During America’s Formalist Period in literature, American writers admired Villa’s work. Mark Van Doreen wrote in reaction to Selected Poems and New as “… So natural yet in its daring so weird, a poet rich and surprising, and not to be ignored”. Better Deutsche wrote ninth New Republic that Have Come, Am Here reveals that Villa’s concern for “ultimate things, the self and the universe.
He is also on visiting terms with the world. He is more interested in himself than in the universe, and he greets the world with but a decent urbanity. ” Although she viewed Villa’s range as somewhat narrow, he “soars high and plunges deep”. British poet Edith Stilwell revealed in the preface of Villa’s Selected Poems and New that she experienced “a shock” upon eating Have Come, Am Here, most notably the poem#57 as “a strange poem of ineffable beauty, springing straight from the depths of Being.
I hold that this is one of the most wonderful short poems of our time, and reading it knew that I was seeing for the first time the work of a poet with a great, even an astonishing, and perfectly original gift. ” Meanwhile, noted American poet Garret Hong described Villas as “one of the greatest pioneers of Asian American literature… Our bitter, narcissistic angel of both late Modernism and early post-colonialism. ” In his introduction to Footnote to Youth, American Ritter Edward J.
O’Brien-”who dedicated his collection Best American Short Stories of 1932 to Villa-”hailed the poet as “one of a half-dozen American short-story writers who count”. Anaheim, in reaction to Villa’s poems,Cummings wrote, “and am alive to see a man against the sky” Critics were divided about Villa’s “comma poems”. On one side, they were irritated by it, calling them “gimmicky”. Leonard Capper wrote in New Writings from the Philippines that the technique of putting commas after every word “is as demonstrably malfunction as a dragging foot”.
