Career of coffee table book

Phoenix was a collection of earlier poems by Cordevilla which were mostly published in the Philippines Graphic weekly magazine in the 1990s, especially the long poem, '"The Last Rose," which was serialized in the magazine. Philippines Graphic's literary section was edited then by National Artist For Literature Nick Joaquin.

According to the Far Eastern University (FEU) Official Website, during its diamond foundation anniversary celebrations in 2004, the Far Eastern University honored Cordevilla as one of her Outstanding Alumni in the field of Journalism. Furthermore, the FEU Institute of Arts and Sciences also states Cordevilla as one of its prominent and outstanding alumni. He is a member of the Philippine Center of International PEN (Poets, Playwrights, Essayists, and Novelists).

Cordevilla has been cited as the last of the Filipino Romantic poets in English. Gmino Abad has written:

...the Romantic spirit did not vanish altogether. Villa, who wrote his last poem, "The Anchored Angel," in 1953, continued to be a strong influence in the craft of poetry well into the 70s, as one might see in the poems of Jolico Cuadra and Luis Francia, and even today in Augustta de Almeidda and Edwin Cordevilla.Cordevilla's third book, the epic, Ten Thousand Lines Project For World Peace, is a long poem that surpasses the English epic Beowulf by three times its length. It is also the longest poem ever written by a Filipino in record time: of two years and two months from January 2010 to March 2012.

Meanwhile, a giant book version of the epic was produced in September 2012 which caught the interest of the local media, especially the giant television network GMA 7 which aired a feature story and a live studio interview with the author. Another major television network ABC-5 also featured the giant book version of the epic. The giant book measured 2' X 4'.

In October 2017, Cordevilla received two major awards, The Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature and the Golden Pen Award, from the organizers of the five-day India World Poetry Festival 2017 held at Hotel Sitara, Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad, India. The literary event was attended by poet-delegates from 42 various countries around the world and representatives from more than 100 poetry organizations all over the host country. A book translation into Telugu of his epic book Ten Thousand Lines was also launched during the festival.

On May 5, 2018, the 16th Gawad Parangal Tanglaw 2018 awards honored Cordevilla as the Best Newspaper Opinion Columnist in Filipino at the Cinematheque Theater, Film Development Council of the Philippines on Kalaw St., Manila. Gawad Parangal Tanglaw (Tagapuring mga Akademisyan ng Aninong Gumagalaw), is an academe-based award-giving body that honors outstanding achievements and performances in Philippine cinema, television and media. It is composed of critics, professionals, educators, and teachers from various colleges and universities in the Philippines.
