1.

It explores themes of tradition, progress, culture, and change, standing as a metaphorical bridge to the tomorrow - the future of the nation. 2.

The story brilliantly illustrates rural life and the traditions, sensibilities, and dilemmas that arise therein. It also depicts the theme of love and the degrees to which one could experience happiness, loss, and redemption. 3. "Heroes in Love: Four Plays": This collection of plays by Ford displays her artistry in drama. The plays revolve around historic Filipino figures and heroes, examining their intimate relationships and unknown or unusual aspects of their lives. These uncharted narratives offer deeper insights into the personal lives of these towering figures, hence the title "Heroes in Love." 4.
