Dear Ibong Adarna Student,
If you’re struggling with those 1,722 stanzas of “Ang Ibong Adarna”, if you lack time probably because you’re too sleepy from watching too much TV, if you wish you could have more fun with your friends and still get better grades in school, then read on…
It’s easy to get discouraged when plodding through stanza after stanza of hard to understand Tagalog. When I was in high school, I wished there were some guide that would help me get some kind of bird’s eye view or quick summary of Ibong Adarna. It’s a miracle people manage to survive high school.
Now that I’m older, I find myself getting interested once more (or for the first time?) in Philippine literature and those aggravating subjects like Ang Ibong Adarna.
In the coming weeks, I’ll post summaries and study notes which will help you save time so that you can focus not just on your grades, but on having fun with your friends and developing yourself as a well-rounded person.
Have fun with this English version of Ibong Adarna summary!
