On the 19th of July, 1861, Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado y Alonzo Realonda, better known as Jose Rizal, was born. Even as a child, Rizal was a lover of literary arts. His mother, Teodora Alonzo, noticed his interest in literature. Encouraged by her support, Rizal wrote is poem, “Sa aking mga Kabata” at the age of 8. He studied at the Ateneo de Manila Universityand at the University of Sto. Tomas. During this time, he wrote poems, plays, and other literary pieces. He joined contests and titled as the winner in several times. Time goes by, and unfortunately, for years, there was not enough money to have his work published. However, the first 2000 copies of his novel were published. Rizal’s second novel took a long time to be published, as did his first novel, Noli Me Tangere. The reason was pretty much similar – lack of financial resources. But everything seems very good until then. But since Rizal was shot, every single one of his work was loved and to be love by people not just here in the Philippines, but around the word. Because Rizal was not only our Hero, he is also a lover of literary arts!

Most Famous Works of Rizal:

Noli Me Tangere is the Latin version meaning, “Don’t Touch Me” they say that it is merely taken from the bible. It is represented by a translation of cease from holding on to me, signifying that Jesus is saying that although he is risen, he has not returned in the same form that he left. El Filibusterismo also known by its English alternate title “The Region of Greed” is the scond novel of Rizal. It is a sequel to Noli Me Tangere and like the first book, was written in Spanish.
