  • Satanas sa Lupa, subtitled “nobelang pangkasalukuyan”, is a 1970 Tagalog-language novel by Filipino author and scriptwriter Celso Al. Carunungan, one of the “titans of Philippine literature”. The novel criticizes the Philippine government and society during the early part of the 1970s, a reason why the author had been included among the group known as "Class 1081", Filipinos imprisoned when Martial Law was declared by Ferdinand Marcos in 1972. Apart from being one of the political novels in the Philippines from 1967 to 1972 that "represented a clamor for change in society", Satanas sa Lupa was one of the novels in the Philippines that incorporated romanticism in its plot using the "love triangle" genre, a genre that began in the Philippines in 1906 through another novel entitled Juan Masili by another Filipino author named Patricio Mariano. The love triangle in Satanas sa Lupa is between the characters Benigno Talavera, Conrado and Chona.
