Aldre 02:00 PM, Mar 25, 2017


I would like to request a digital copy of ALL poems written in Filipino you have in your collection. I'm deeply interested in poems written by National Artists, National Heroes, and Makata ng Taon honorees, also in poems which have won literary awards such as Palanca or National Book.

I'm planning this personal project to showcase the power of Filipino literature through artificial intelligence. However, the main part of this project is collecting a huge corpus of poems written in Filipino.

Thank you for reading this request and hoping for your consideration.
