Rizal in Saga: A Life For Student Fans

SKU: 9789718281123

Small is great if the smallness is taken as a challenge."


In 1996, on the occasion of the centenary of Rizal's death, the esteemed Filipino writer, Nick Joaquin, wrote the biography of the country's premier hero, Jose Rizal. Relying foremost on Rizal's own journals and his works, Joaquin's Rizal brings forth Rizal's humanity--his fears, his insecurities, his influences, and the fortitude that ultimately leads him to become, as Joaquin calls him, "the grandest of Filipinos."


This hardcover edition is introduced and annotated by the country's foremost expert on Rizal, Ambeth R. Ocampo. Ocampo shares his collection of historical photographs while including his notes in it, as if there is a conversation between Joaquin and Ocampo in the book, further contextualizing Rizal--the man in conflict in the context of a country in turmoil--for today's student fans.
