He is is usually placed within the Anglo-American modernist poetic and literary tradition" - the first and greatest English-language poet and writer in English in the Philippines. In 1972, when the Marcos government designated him as ??National Artist of the Philippines.?? His art - that is his writing - can be defined by its rich lushness of his imagery, the passionate intensity of his emotion he achieve, at times, a kind of biblical beauty.
