Isa sa kinikilalang progresibong manunulat sa Pilipinas si Rogelio “Ka Roger” Ordoňez. Ayon nga sa isang premyadong manunulat, si Ka Roger sa simula’t sapul ay nanatiling manunulat na may paninindigan sa sinumpaang sining. Hindi kumupas, at manapa’y lalo pang tumingkad ang kanyang panulat na bumabangga at bumabaklas sa establisyamento ng lipunan, lalo na sa naghaharing uring nagsasamantala sa dayukdok na masa dito sa itinuturing niyang La Tierra Pobreza. Matutunghayan sa kanyang mga akda ang talim ng pagsusuri niya sa lipunang Pilipino.
