Writers from the past differ largely from the writers at present. On the other hand, readers from the past differ largely from the readers at present. However, writers from the past and writers at present can be found in writers at any given time. In the same way that readers from the past and readers at present can also be found in readers at any given time. How this is possible depends mainly on the literary work, that which is recognized to be a work at any given time.
Using bourgeois literary criticism and Antony Easthope's science of poetry, this paper will show a discursive reading of four of the poems in Merlie M. Alunan's Hearthstone Sacred Tree. With the merging of the two disciplines, this thesis will illustrate how the interplay of the old discourse and the new discourse form one big discourse.
In so doing, this thesis will point out how Alunan's poems can continuously surprise its readers as it is read and re-read, thereby providing an example of how literary works could possibly live through time.
