A passionate love story set against the ugly political backdrop of repression, torture, and murder, "The Noli," as it is called in the Philippines, was the first major artistic manifestation of Asian resistance to European colonialism, and Rizal became a guiding conscience—and martyr—for the revolution that would subsequently rise up in the Spanish province.

Shelves: local , drama , borrowed , tragicomic , tagalog , tfg , historical-fiction , asian , pinoy , saddest. This book is the most important literary work in the Philippines. One hundred twenty-six after it was written, its message is still relevant to us Filipinos.
Jose Rizal. Through Ibarra , he gives a warning to the Spanish friars for the continuous killings and injustices being done to the native Filipinos. He says that anytime, at a slight provocation, the revolution will start. This novel was originally written in Spanish first published in Germany.
Its Filipino Tagalog translation is a required reading in third year high school throughout the country. The first time I read this was in school year or more than 3 decades ago. I think the version that we read was the one with red cover and was translated by Domingo de Guzman abridged, I think but it retained some Spanish phrases.
However, just like my classmates then, I read it with passing the Pilipino course as my only motivation. I painstakingly memorized the plot, characters, events that had high probability of being asked in the quizzes and exams. Now, during this second reading, even after 33 years, I could still recall some names of the characters, some scenes and events.
Like probably all Filipinos who finished third year high, we were all told that this novel caused Dr. The Spanish friars banned this novel in the Philippines because this announced to the whole world the atrocities, injustices, killings and maltreatments that they were doing then to the native Filipinos who they also derogatorily referred to as indios.
Then since Rizal had no anti-American leanings, Taft handpicked Rizal for the position? For me, the answer is yes. This book, even if this did not really move mountains and earth for the Philippines, really helped Filipinos to realize that they were being treated badly by the Spaniards.
So, the friars became powerful and ruled the country for years. Then came Rizal. During one of his dinners in Barcelona, he suggested to his equally rich male ilustrado friends, that they collectively write a novel to expose the cruelty of the Spanish friars in the Philippines.
They said yes but Rizal did not hear anything from them anymore. So, Rizal wrote this book all by himself. There was even an account that he sacrificed a lot like he picked cigarette butts from the street because it was cold in Germany when this book was published and he did not have money to buy even cigarettes. The book is well-written. The plot is thick and can be interpreted in many ways. That second type of love is illustrated here by two characters with two different reasons: Ibarra loves his country because she provides for his happiness while Elias loves his country despite giving him all his sufferings.
These two men also have opposing views on revolution. Realist Ibarra thinks that it is better for the Philippines to stay under Spanish rule and what he desires is only for the country to be a province of Spain so that the rights of the Filipinos will be the same as those of the Spaniards. Idealist Elias, on the other hand, thinks that this is impossible and total secession of the Philippines from Spain is the only solution to end all the social ills.
Almost all of the many characters are memorable and well developed. The descriptions of the settings are beautifully detailed, I thought that while reading some of the scenes, I could feel the dusty road, smell the animal dung, hear the galloping horses, see the crazy mother Sisa wearing her dirty tattered clothes and wandering the streets mindlessly.
The height of irony. I got goose bumps while reading these scenes that my year old skin did not experience the first time I read this book 33 years ago. The Spaniards conquistadores and Americans GIs have long been gone.
Although this is contestable , the Philippines has long been a free country. So, what is the legacy that this book has left for the present generation of the Filipinos?
You see, I think the book still talks to us Filipinos. Rizal believed in the importance of education as inculcated in his mind by his parents and brother Paciano. He studied abroad, i. When he came back, he founded and ran a school for young boys in Dapitan. If Rizal were alive today, he would have been an educator - probably an owner or dean of a big university, or the secretary of Education or even the President of the Philippines.
He must have surely have been repeatedly saying that the solution to the abject poverty that is now very much around is this: education of the masses.
Reminder to all Filipinos in Goodreads who have rated this less than 5 stars. This book caused the death of our National Hero by firing squad. This book triggered or fanned the revolution. This book made many Filipinos to fall down during the many succeeding revolts throughout the country. This book led to our independence. This book is well-written. Try to read this again now that you are more mature no longer childish like when you were in high school and see the difference.

After over three centuries of colonial resentment, the Philippine Revolution had begun. The title of this novel is taken from the biblical context, when Jesus says to Mary Magdalene, touch me not, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. The dictionary places Noli Me Tangere in this context: "a person or thing that must not be touched or interfered with. After news of his father's death, Ibarra returns home to the Philippines after living and studying in Europe for seven years. He yearns for the home and society he left in fact he spends an increasingly annoying span of time being in denial and yet through misfortune he realizes, as Thomas Wolfe has put it, "you can't go home again.
The friars, who control the church, also control Filipino politics and individual rights. Ibarra soon learns how his father was wrongfully imprisoned and how his death was marred by betrayal. When Ibarra chooses to be vocal about his father's death, he is immediately ostracized. Once the priest he attacks denunciates him, society dictates that he can no longer marry the love of his life; view spoiler [ ironically, she becomes a nun in order to avoid a forced marriage and ends up living heartbroken hide spoiler ] soon, he finds himself a wanted man.
The novel ebbs and flows with sadness and satire, love and heartbreak. It is not the easiest to read because it meanders into past and present tense, the narration veers between first person plural and third person, and numerous characters and subplots are introduced.
One often hears about the love story of Ibarra and Maria Clara, but one heart aches as a reader, since one never gets to see them truly evolve. It is a love that is dimmed by the control of societal hierarchy.

Juan Crisostomo Ibarra is a young Filipino who, after studying for seven years in Europe, returns to his native land to find that his father, a wealthy landowner, has died in prison as the result of a quarrel with the parish curate, a Franciscan friar named Padre Damaso. Ibarra is engaged to a beautiful and accomplished girl, Maria Clara , the supposed daughter and only child of the rich Don Santiago de los Santos, commonly known as Capitan Tiago. Ibarra resolves to forego all quarrels and to work for the betterment of his people. To show his good intentions, he seeks to establish, at his own expense, a public school in his native town.
The book, written in Spanish, is a sweeping and passionate unmasking of the brutality and corruption of Spanish rule in the Philippines — He believed that his homeland was similarly afflicted. The novel offers both a panoramic view of every level of society in the Philippines of the time and droll satire. Its description of the cruelty of Spanish rule was a catalyst for the movement for independence in the country. It later came to be regarded as a classic of Philippine literature, though it is more frequently read in English or Tagalog translation than in its original Spanish.
