About the Author
Asuncion David Maramba

Asuncion David Maramba is a retired college professor, book editor, and columnist. She finished H.S., 1951, at Maryknoll College; graduated AB-BSE, 1955 both Summa Cum Laude from St. Theresa’s College, Manila; M.A., 1958 from Ateneo Graduate School and took the Basic Management Program at Asian Institute of Management in 1993.

She has thoroughly enjoyed a seamless teaching career of forty years, handling literature and writing courses at St. Theresa’s College, Manila, College Department; St. Scholastica’s College where she also served as Chairman of the English Department; De la Salle University; San Carlos Seminary, and the Rogationist Seminary.

Among the fifteen books she has edited or authored, her Philippine literature textbooks, notably Philippine Contemporary Literature (now past the fifty-year mark), Early Philippine Literature (Revised Edition with Teaching Notes and Study Guides), and Outline History of Philippine Literature in English have contributed to the awareness and appreciation of Philippine literature, little known several decades ago vis-à-vis the country’s western immersion.

The three latest books she has conceptualized and edited in the last decade, Six Modern Filipino Heroes, Six Young Filipino Martyrs and Seven in the Eye of History are pioneers in making known our still neglected modern heroes, heroines and notable historical personages of various persuasions.

She was a columnist for Veritas Newsmagazine (“On Living”) from 1984 to 1987; the Manila Digest (“The Changing Church”) from 1989 to 1990; and Manila Chronicle (“Humanly Speaking”) from 1986-1991. In 1991 she collected around 100 of these columns in View from the Middle. In 2006 she launched a second collection of another hundred columns in Beyond the Classroom.

She received the CMMA (Catholic Mass Media Awards) Press Award for Best Feature Writer in 1987. In 1992 she was one of the recipients of the Catholic Authors’ Award. In 2002 she was one of the awardees of the Amazing Alumni Achievers of Maryknoll-Miriam College. In 2011 she received the Titus Brandsma Award Philippines for Communication and Literature.

An occasional columnist, she continues to help mold public opinion with her contributions to “Commentary” of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
