Why I love Rogelio R. Sicat  “Impeng Negro” more than Zelda Soriano “Encounter”?


I like “Impeng Negro” more than “Encounter” because it gives more lesson even though they are

both have it. But in different ways because “Encounter” tells about a family who separated for a years while “Impeng Negro” tells about a boy who suffering because of his differences. Because he has a darker skin, curly hairs and very thin figure. But after all the problems that he passed, he became successful by standing on his own feet.


The “Encounter” is simple but has a dramatic story. I feel the sadness of the story while “Impeng Negro”  since from the start, I know this story will be interested. When I read the story, I feel anger of Impeng to those people who keep discriminating him. And the setting of “Encounter” is just only their home. While “Impeng Negro” is in the water station.


The characters of “Impeng Negro” are non-educated people and they are all aguadors. While in “Encounter” is just a family. And the conflict of “Impeng Negro” is the discrimination. While the conflict of “Encounter” is the loneliness of the child.


The plot of “Encounter” is the girl who has a family who separated around 5 years. Her parents want to be with her. While “Impeng Negro”, Impeng is with his family but the rest of the family don’t want to be with him. And the theme of “Impeng Negro” is much better because it tells that “Don’t do the things that you don’t want to do to you” compare to “Encounter”, because it tells about “learn to forgive”.


“ Magkaminsan ang tao’y malupit sa kanyang kapwa, nakakahalintulad sila ng mga hayop sa kagubatan na kung sino lamang ang mga malalaki at malalakas ay siyang nakakapanig laban sa maliliit at mahihina.”
