Report ^^

  1. 1. It was written in Spanish and published in 1887 by a small press in Berlin.  It took some two years to write.  Rizal started writing the novel apparently in 1884 in Madrid.  In mid-1885, he continued to write during his months in Paris  The last part of the book was completed in Germany in 1886. 
  2. 2. The Noli Me Tangere is, therefore, not merely an attack on the Spanish colonial regime; it is a charter of nationalism.  As a novel, it has noticeable literary defects, but as a work of political propaganda, it is powerful and moving.  The ultimate message is not always clearly spelled out, but the abuses and defects of the colonial regime are pitilessly laid bare.  Rizal balances the national portrait by highlighting the virtues and good qualities of the unspoiled Filipino. 
  3. 3. FIRST REACTIONS  Rizal ran into much more lively reactions, for and against.  Archbishop Pedro Payo, a Dominican, got a copy and sent it to the rector of the school (UST) for judgment. (August 30, 1887)  Judgment: it declared the Noli me tangere, “heretical, impious and scandalous in the religious order, and the antipatriotic, subversive of public order, offensive to the government of Spain and to its method of procedure in these islands in political order.”
  4. 4. Rizal protested the judges that he had desired to fulfill his duty to Spain and to the Philippines.  The Comision permanente de censura was asked whether the book was to be allowed to enter the country.  Father Salvador Font, an Augustinian, prepared a report, recommending the complete prohibitation of the book in the philippines, for not only did it attack directly. (December 29, 1887) 
  5. 5. Rizal was accompanied by the civil guard lieutenant Jose Taviel de Andrede.  February 1888, Rizal had left the country, yet nothing had been done to ban the novel.  Rizal wrote Blumentritt from Hong Kong that life had been impossible for him in the Philippines.  The novel was as yet scarcely known in Spain. 
  6. 6. SUCCESS AND FAILURE  Filipino nationalist activity in Europe is substantial failure.  From 1881-1895, a number of reforms were introduced in the Philipines.  The tobacco monopoly was abolished; the tribute disappeared; and the compulsory labor reduced. (Failure)  The penal code was declared to detract.
  7. 7. The provisms for civil marriage were suspended.  The basic conditions for participation in political life were still denied. (freedom of press, freedom of association, etc.)  The campaign was indeed a failure, and the program of making Spaniards out of Filipinos was definitely rejected by Spain.  A TOTAL LOSS TO THE FILIPINO 
  8. 8. ASSIMILATIONISM as STRATEGY  Filipino activists look on independence as an ultimate goal.  The program La Solidaridad and the complex organization surrounding it was professedly assimilationist.  Assimilationist program was a strategy or first step than the ultimate goal.  Rizal and Del Pilar have been contrasted as idealist and realist.  Rizal showed himself more realistic than Del Pilar.
  9. 9. POSITIONS  The legal position of the parish priest was modified but negligibly until the municipal reform of Maura in 1898.  The difference between Becerra’s first term as overseas minister in 1889-90, when he was out to destroy clerical power in the Phil., and his second term in 1894, when the earlier secularization projects were not modified.
  10. 10. ASSIMILATION WAS A QUALIFIED SUCEES IN DAMAGING THE PRESTIDGE OF THE FRIARS IN PARTICULAR AND OF THE SPANIARDS.
