Summary

In the spirit of The Count of Monte Cristoand Les Mis#xE9;rables, a major new translation-Jos#xE9; Rizal's stunning continuation of Noli Me Tangere. Jos#xE9; Rizal was one of the leading champions of Filipino nationalism and independence. His masterpiece, Noli Me Tangere, is widely considered to be the foundational novel of the Philippines. In this riveting continuation, which picks up the story thirteen years later, Rizal departs from the Noli's themes of innocent love and martyrdom to present a gripping tale of obsession and revenge. Clearly demonstrating Rizal's growth as a writer, and influenced by his exposure to international events, El Filibusterismois a thrilling and suspenseful account of Filipino resistance to colonial rule that still resonates today.
