THE EFFECTS OF NOLI ME
TANGERE AND
ELFILIBUSTERISMO TO THE
NATIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS
•They awakened the filipinos to their
conditions under spanish rule and
that they need to work as one for
their freedom and salvation.
•It called on the Filipinos to mend
their ways, reclaim their honor as a
people, undertake the reforms of self
before society in order to prepare the
Philippines for eventual freedom.
•To keep the fiipinos aware of the
message an content of the novel, the
book has to be transated. A
Katipunero leader named Diego
Mojica made the first translation
from Spanish to Tagalog.
• Even with the fictional aspects of
the characters in the novels, there
were allusions to real persons,
places and events.
•Some of the persons in the novels
were thinly disguise by Rizal.
Because of the allusions of Rizal to
any actual personalities and events,
many people actually believed what
Rizal wrote were true facts.
•The presence of lies an half-truths
in the novels as well as its heretical
contents were some of the reasons
why the church vigorously oppose
the passage of the Rizal Bill in
1956. Today, the two novels are
very much remembered by the
filipino people.
•Streets and a plaza in Manila were
named after the novels as well as a
whole complex of streets.
•The individual characters too are
remembered: nowadays whenever a
priest or a member of the clergy does
something does something wrong or
interferes with the social life of the
people, he is called a modern Padre
Damaso.
• Sisa is remembered as the woman
of the weak character driven into
madness by her husband and a
cruel society; Maria Clara is seen as
a model of meekness and the
character of a Filipina.
•The words of Rizal either
speaking as Ibarra and
Simoun are remembered by
millions of Filipinos who at
least saw a movie about the
novels or actually read the
books.
