Ang Mga Pinagdaanang Buhay ng "Ibong Adarna": Narrativity and Ideology in the Adarna’s Corrido and Filmic Versions

Francisco Benitez

Abstract

Through a consideration of narrativity, the paper explores different structures of recognition in the corrido and 1941 filmic versions of the Ibong Adarna. The paper compares the chapbook’s context and narrative techniques with that of the film’s capacity to address an audience and creating subject-forms. It explores the applicability of James Siegel’s concept of the lingua franca’s communicative power to the Philippine situation, and suggests that different textual technologies contain different though overlapping grammars that affect their ideological functions.
