These were the two published novels by Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero of my country, the Philippines. Noli and Fili, along with his other writings, caused his death by firing squad on December 30, or around 2 years before Spain sold the country to the United States of America.
They are required readings in most high schools in the country: Noli for juniors and Fili for seniors. A filibuster is someone who engages in an unauthorized military expedition into a foreign country to foment or support a revolution.
In the novel, this is Simoun who is actually the disguised Ibarra, the main protagonist in the previous Noli. Because he was duped El fli Padre Salvi for the El fli to have a chance on Ibarra's girlfriend Maria Clara, the wicked friar implicated Ibarra in inciting rebellion against the government.
So, Ibarra became the hunted and was only saved by Elias towards the end of Noli. After helping Basilio in burying Sisa and burning Elias on Christmas Eve, Ibarra went to Cuba, made himself rich, met and befriended the now Governor General assigned in the Philippines, he is now fully poised to get Maria Clara from the convent and stage his revenge against those who wronged him.
Noli was published in Germany in and was immediately banned by Spanish friars in the Philippines and from then on, the Spanish government started to monitor Rizal's activities.
His parents told him not to return to the country and when he did, asked him to return back to Europe. He also lost his true love, Leonor Rivera.
His uncle, Rivera's father, thought that his daughter would not have a peaceful married life with somebody as dangerous Rizal. This threat from Spanish government did not stop Rizal from continuing his campaign overseas to expose the injustices being done to his fellowmen.
So, he wrote Fili and expressed his thoughts on the possible solution to the country's situation. Yes, if you really analyze the messages in both novels, Noli's intention was to state the problem while Fili's was to present the possible solutions.
I thought Rizal did not write Fili just to fan further the flame caused by Noli but to tell the Filipinos the different alternatives to their problems and what he thought was the best solution: You see, Rizal shared this earth with Mahatma Gandhi But Rizal was first in pushing non-violence in achieving freedom.
It's just that the Filipinos then were too brave, aggressive and impatient to wait for the right time so they fought tooth and nail against the Spanish government.
In fairness, they achieved a bit of victory so they were able to declare our independence in and installed a revolutionary government but it was short-lived because Spain hurriedly sold the county to the Americans to the tune of twenty million dollars as agreed in the Treaty of Paris in that same year.
I thought of giving this book a 4-star rating. Not because of any flaw in Rizal's writing but Ongoco's translation is full of typographical errors.
The publisher or printer seemed to have hurried everything and they did not do a good job of proofreading and giving time for Ongoco to substantiate the study guide that was one of the reasons why I loved the first book, Noli. Anyway, I am giving this still a full 5 because this was written by our national hero who bravely gave up his life for us so what the eff, anything less than that is for me, unpatriotic and a total disregard to Rizal's sacrifices and legacy.
Most of my GR Filipino friends, prefer Fili over Noli but most local and foreign critics say otherwise. What do I say?
Which one do I prefer? Hmmm, let me see. The opening scene in Noli, the grand welcome party in Capitan Tiago's house mirrors the condition of the country right away.View the profiles of people named Pedro El Fli.
