I first met Professor Bienvenido Lumbera in 1985, when I attended the UP Writers Workshop in the summer of that year. That was 23 years ago. As with most well-loved teachers, Prof. Lumbera possesses the rare gift of wearing the years well. He looks exactly the same in this video as I remember him then.
This video was taken during a Lecture on Poetry and Politics that he gave on the 17th of May 2008 at the Ateneo de Davao University.
