Filipino poet Joel M. Toledo grew up in Silang in the rural province of Cavite near to Manila. The son of a navy man, Joel's family was impoverished and he grew up without electricity in his house. His first book of poems Chiaroscuro is about moving from the darkness of his home to the bright lights of Manila.
