My Last Farewell

1st Stanza

* Rizal’s beautiful description of his Fatherland. He used the biblical Eden to describe the Pre-Hispanic Philippines which is an imaginary time of purity and innocence. He adores the beautiful country that he and others are fighting for. He said that he is glad to give his life to Filipinas even though his life was brighter, fresher, or more blest than it is now – pertaining to the time when he wrote the poem.

2nd Stanza

* The men who gave their life to his beloved country. Rizal said that their dedication and patriotism to the country is without second thoughts. It doesn’t matter how one struggles, that all struggles, all deaths, are worth it if it is for the good of the country.

Why Rizal Is the National Hero by Ambeth R. Ocampo Date: 6/19/2007 In an interview with Asuncion Lopez Bantug, Narcisa Rizal’s granddaughter, I was told that the young Jose Rizal was very conscious about his looks because he had a big head and a frail body and was small for his age. He was fascinated by stories of higantes and “great men” in history. Today, Rizal scholars who put this data in the context of psychoanalysis hypothesize that Rizal’s intellectual “gifts” were merely ways of making up for physical frailty. Psychohistory has yet to shake the foundations of Philippine historiograp

On Issue Of Greatness

On Issue of Greatness Dr. Jose P. Rizal should always and forever be revered as the Philippines foremost hero. This conviction is not to jeopardize Andres Bonifacio or any other heroes who, in their own way, nobly contributed their intelligence, talent, resources, energy, time and own self in the service of the fatherland. They are all great but Rizal arises from among them with distinction. Some people contend that Andres Bonifacio should be the Philippines’ national hero instead of Rizal. They say that Rizal is an American sponsored hero and were chosen mainly because of his peaceful

These two views seem to contradict each other though both have solid evidences or bases for having such views on what went on Rizal. In Leon Ma Guerrero’s view, Jose Rizal was a genius brought about by the perks of being born a bourgeoisie or a middle-class man. He was just “lucky” to have been the son of a wealthy gentleman who had the capability of providing him and his siblings with comfortable lives: he had a nanny to watch over him and to make sure he doesn’t hurt himself, a private tutor in
