Overview

This book includes both the original Spanish and a complete English translation.

Este libro revolucionario fue prohibido en las Islas Filipinas, por cuya libertad y nacionalidad aboga. Cuenta la historia de un joven que quiere desarrollar su país y liberarlo de la opresión de los poderes europeos a pesar de las amenazas de los religiosos y políticos de su pueblo. Es a la vez una historia romántica y un alegato contra la degradación moral y social de Filipinas en los últimos años bajo dominio español. Novela subversiva y necesaria para entender la cultura filipina. Esta edición, libre de errores, incluye un índice activo y una traducción completa y apasionada al inglés.

This book was banned in the Philippines for its revolutionary nature and its support of Philippine nationality and independence. It tells the story of a youth who returns from Europe ready to bring his country into the modern age, only to find life-threatening opposition at every turn from religious and political authorities. It is both a romance novel and an essay against the moral and social degradation of the Philippines in the last years of Spanish rule. It is subversive and utterly necessary for understanding Philippine culture. This edition includes a fully active table of contents, a glossary, copious informative cultural and contextual notes, the original Spanish and a translation into English that is both complete and passionately partisan. The translator doesn't divide the chapters according to the original, but according to what he felt would make the most sense for a reader in English, so don't be surprised to see that the Spanish has about 30 chapters and the English nearly 50.

This novel really captivates how the people were treated that time. I think this book is really reflected during the author's time. He had a very detailed plot with stunning dialogue. This book would have so many dangerous content if you lived during the author's time. Learn about him!! His name is Jose Rizal, a martyr of the Philippines. Three stars and a sun! Woohoo!

I first started reading this novel when I was in grade 4. Due to a strong typhoon, we had no school for 2 days and had a long weekend. I had nothing to do, and with no electricity, I was forced to read this to keep myself occupied. I was not aware that it would be the start of my book reading hobby, but most important, my love of Philippine history. I was so touched of the fate of Crispin and Basilio, and embarrassed by the ineptness, ignorance and arrogance, and the complacency of the Filipinos as depicted in the story. If you want to know a Filipino, read this book. Sad to say, it is still so true today.

this is the best book of our times... though it is required and very hard to study in high school years ( i bet, every young Filipino will agree), you'll never regret in the end...

However nowhere in the description does it explain that the book is not translated. I wish i could give it a five star rating but if you want to read you hould be able to read tagalog.
