Here is the complete epic of Ibalon in English: Baltog was a young man who was strong, kind and very handsome. He was the son of Handiong, the chieftain of their v…illage. One day, his father talked to him about their miserable plight in the land of Samar. They had many enemies who would come every now and then and destroy their crops and kill their animals. Their people were dying of hunger because of lack of food. What was left to them was not enough to see them through another harvest season. Our people are tired of fighting, son, his father said. They want a peaceful life with no hunger lingering around. Our animals are getting fewer in number each day. If this situation continues unabated, we will all die of hunger. What do you want me to do, father? Baltog asked. His father looked at him straight in the eyes. Then he held his shoulders. Find a place where our people can live peacefully and contentedly. Baltog's eyes wandered around. He saw their people's miserable houses. He saw hunger and starvation in every child's faces. He saw resignation in very mother and father's faces. He too felt sad. I am too old for the job so I'm putting it on your shoulder. You are young, strong and brave. I know you can do it. For me and for our people. Handiong gave his blessing to Baltog. Baltog sailed out that night in a small boat that would take him to a place called Kabikulan. He had heard so much about the place and he thought it would be good if he could find a place there where he and his people could live for the rest of their lives. Out in the great sea, Baltog encountered a strong wind and huge waves that destroyed his boat. He had to swim and he almost drowned before he safely reached the shore off the coastal town of Kabikulan. He begun wandering in Kabikulan, reaching as far as the land of Aslon and Inalon which had jurisdiction over the plain surrounded by the mountains of Asog, Masaragam, Isarog and Lignion. He found Ibalon a perfect place for him and his people. The soil was fertile and was suitable for root crops, rice and vegetables. It was also very ideal for their animals. It was like a land of milk and honey. I want to have this place for me and my people, Baltog said to himself. Baltog said it too soon. Because there lived in the mountains surrounding Ibalon several crocodiles that had wings and could fly, wild boar that was as big as an elephant and a snake with a head of a woman. But Baltog was decided to have Ibalon for their settlement area and so he fought the crocodiles and the boars with all his might. With his strength and skill in hand-to-hand combat, he was able to subdue all crocodiles and boar, killing them and cutting them into pieces. However, the snake with a woman's head was able to escape and left the mountain for another home. Then he went home and told hid father about the land he had found for them. Wasting no time, Baltog and his father and all their people left Samar for Ibalon, their new home. Once settled Handiong and Balog taught their people several home industries to make a living. In no time, their lives changed for the better. They tilled the soil and it gave them bountiful harvest. In that land, hunger and starvation became for them, a thing of the past.
An example of an epic hero is Achilles. He displays skills in war, courage and pride for himself and the gods. In an epic there are three big themes and these themes correspon…d with the epic hero. The themes are honor, power of fate (the gods have a huge impact here), and the heros limitations. Epic heros also have qualities such as sacrifice, determination, loyalty, courage, dedication, valor, selfless, convition, focused, perserverance, fortitude and bravery. larger than life, yet somewhat flawed.
embodies the strengths and moral qualities of his or her culture. Must possess the characteristics of an epic hero which are: 1. The hero is introduced in the midst of turmoil…, at a point well into the story; antecedent action will be recounted in flashbacks. 2. The hero is not only a warrior and a leader, but also a polished speaker who can address councils of chieftains or elders with eloquence and http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Characteristics_of_an_epic_hero#. 3. The hero, often a demi-god, possesses distinctive weapons of great size and power, often heirlooms or presents from the gods. 4. The hero must undertake a long, perilous journey, often involving a descent into the Underworld (Greek, "Neukeia"), which tests his endurance, courage, and cunning. 5. Although his fellows may be great warriors (like Achilles and Beowulf, he may have a commitatus, or group of noble followers with whom he grew up), he undertakes a task that no one else dare attempt. 6. Whatever virtues his race most http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Characteristics_of_an_epic_hero#, these the epic hero as a cultural exemplar possesses in abundance. His key quality is often emphasized by his stock epithet: "Resourceful Odysseus," "swift-footed Achilles," "piousAEneas." 7. The concept of arete (Greek for "bringing virtue to perfection") is crucial to understanding the epic protagonist. 8. The hero establishes his aristeia (nobility) through single combat in superari a superiore, honour coming from being vanquished by a superior foe. That is, a hero gains little honour by slaying a lesser mortal, but only by challenging heroes like himself or adversaries of superhuman power. 9. The two great epic adversaries, the hero and his antagonist, meet at the climax, which must be delayed as long as possible to sustain maximum interest.

The hero's epic adversary is often a "god-despiser," one who has more respect for his own mental and physical abilities than for the power of the gods. The adversary might also be a good man sponsored by lesser deities, or one whom the gods desert at a crucial moment. 11. The hero may encounter a numinous phenomenon (a place or person having a divine or supernatural force) such as a haunted wood or enchanting sorceress that he most use strength, cunning, and divine assistance to overcome.
kito mag-aral ka naman! di yung nakawiki ka ng nakawiki! xD try mo tumambay sa library! it is about the king who protect his kingdom to monsters IBALON EPIC FROM BICOL A l…ong time ago, there was a rich land called Ibalong. The hero Baltog, who came from Botavora of the brave clan of Lipod, came to this land when many monsters were still roaming in its very dark forests. He decided to stay and was the first to cultivate its field and to plant them with gabi. Then one night, a monstrous, wild boar known as Tandayag saw these field and destroyed the crops. Upon knowing this, Baltog decided to look for this boar with all his courage and patiend. At last, as soon as he saw it, he fearlessly wrestled with it, with all his might. Baltog was unafraid. He was strong and brave. Though the Tandayag had very long fangs, he was able to pin down the monstrous, wild boar and break apart its very big jawbones. With this, Tandayag fell and died. After this fight, Baltog went to his house in Tondol, carrying the Tandaya'g broken bones. Then he hung it on a talisay tree in front of his house. Upon learning of the victory of their Chief Baltog, the people prepared a feast and celebrated. The very big jawbones of the dead boar became an attraction for everyone. Thus, came the tribes of Panikwason and Asog to marvel it. The second hero who came to the land of Ibalong was Handyong. Together with his men, he had to fight thousands of battles, and face many dangers to defeat the monster. As warriors, they first fought the one-eyed monster with the tree necks in the land of Ponong. For ten months, they fought without rest. And they never stopped fighting until all these monsters were killed. Handyong and his men made their next attack against the giant flying sharks called Triburon which had hardly flesh and sawlike teeth that could crush rocks. They continued fighting until the defeat of the last Triburon. They tamed the wild carabaos. They even drove away the giant and very fierce Sarimao which had very sharp fingernails. And using their spears and arrows, they killed all the crocodiles which were as big as boats. With all these killings, the rivers and swamps of Ibalong turned red with blood. It was at this time that the savage monkeys became frightened and hid themselves. Among the enemies of Handyong and his men, the serpent Oryol was the hardes to kill. Having a beautiful voice, Oryaol could change its image to deceive its enemies. To capture it, Handyong tried different ways. But Oryol escaped every one of it and disappeared. So alone and unafraid, Handyong decide to look for Oryol in the heart of the forest. He followed the beautiful voice and was almost enchanted by it in his pursuit. Days and nights passed until Oryol came to admire Handyong's bravery and gallantry. Then the serpent helped the hero to conquer monsters, thus restoring peace to the entire Ibalong. In one the areas of Ibalong called Ligmanan, Handyong built a town. Under his leadership and his laws, slaves and masters were treated equally. The people planted rice and because of their high regard of him they named this rice after him. He built the first boat to ride the waves of Ibalong's seas. Through his good example, his people became inspired and came up with their own inventions. There was Kimantong who made the plow, harrow and other farming tools. Hablom who invented the first loom for weaving abaca clothes, Dinahongm an Agta, who created the stove, cooking pot, earthen jar and other kitchen utensils, and Sural who brilliantly thought of syllabary and started to write on a marble rock. This was a golden period in Ibalong. Then suddenly, there cmae a big flood caused by Unos, with terrifying earthquakes. The volcanoes of Hantik, Kulasi and Isarog erupted. Rivers changed their direction and the seas waves rolled high. Destruction was everywhere. Soon, the earth parted, mountains sank, a lake was formed, and many towns in Ibalong were ruined. Then appeared the giant Rabot, half-man and half-beast, with awesome and terrifying powers. People were asking who will fight against Rabot. So Bantong, the third hero was called. He was a good friend of Handyong. He was ordered to kill the new monster on Ibalong. To do this, he took with him a thousand warriors to attack Rabot's den. But using his wisdom against Rabot, he did not attack the giant right away. He first observed Rabot's ways. Looking around the giant's den, he discovered that there were many rocks surrounding it, and these were the people who were turned into rocks by Rabot. Bantong also learned that Rabot loved to sleep during the day and stayed awake at night. So, he waited. When Rabot was already sleeping very soundly, Bantong came hear him. He cut the giant into two with his very sharp bolo and without any struggle, Rabot died. So Ibalong was at peace once more.
