Introduction to Rizal Course

...INTRODUCTION TO RIZAL COURSE WEEK 2 BACKGROUNDER OF RIZAL’S FAMILY / HISTORICAL BACGROUND OF RIZAL: A. ANCESTRY OF RIZAL. Rizal came from a mixture of races. From his father side, his great grandfather was a Chinese merchant from Amoy, China. In the closing year of the 17th century, Domingo Lamco who assumed the family surname “ Mercado “ in consonance with the decree of Governor General Narciso Claveria to free all Spanish subjects and their children from prejudices associated with having Chinese surnames. Lamco married a wealthy Chinese mestiza, Ines dela Rosa and from Manila, they moved to Binan and became tenants in the Dominican hacienda which those time large portion of the town were owned by Dominican friars. Rizal’s great grandfather was Francisco Mercado, the son of Domingo and Ines dela Rosa, who married a Chinese mestiza Cirila Bernacha, had a son by the name of Juan Mercado, who married a Chinese mestiza Cirila Alejandrino, serving as Riza’s grandfather. Juan and Cirila had 14 children, one of whom was Francisco Mercado, Rizal’s father who married Teodora Alonzo. Rizal’s father was an erudite man. He took courses in Latin and Philosophy at Colegio de San Jose in Manila. For Rizal, his father was a model father because of his honesty, industry and prudence. Rizal inherited from his father self – respect, serenity and poise, seriousness and a deep sense of dignity.

Relevance of Jose Rizal's Nationalism in Present Times

...converted or channeled into some sort of patriotism of our country and existence as Filipinos then this becomes, in little ways than not, our modern nationalism. I mean it only makes sense that somehow, when Rizal said that “ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan”, he might not have realized that those words were actually intended for the young generation of today, more than a century after his death. To further elaborate on this statement of mine, it’s no secret that many and many Filipinos leave their mother land to pursue their careers abroad after receiving their education here while some actually go abroad to finish theirs. But what if these people never left; what if these people sought their life career here in the Philippines; then Jose Rizal’s words about the kabataan begins to make sense. When you think about it, it’ not that this country lacks the capability to produce able and excellent people from this generation, it’s just that they don’t stick around long enough to give back to their nation. Nationalism is, in truth, slowly dying. With a lack luster economy, with a glimpse of improvement in the previous year and at the present seems to be insufficient of a reason for the kabataan of this generation to make any difference to help the country in the ways that they can. Many are those who can readily forsake their home country mainly because there is more to lose than what they can gain, and I don’t blame some when doing so. If a man and his family live in hard......

A Reflection on Rizal's Poem

...the poem. Rizal pointed it out that he felt the deep sorrow that our late countrymen have felt in the hands of oppression. The line: “Defiance to the tyrant's crime” was for the friars who made Rizal suffer and to his Rizal's family who were hesitated and worried of Rizal's condition. TO THE VIRGIN MARY Dear Mary, giving comfort and sweet peace To all afflicted mortals; thou the spring Whence flows a current of relief, to bring Our soil fertility that does not cease; Upon thy throne, where thou dest reign high, Oh, list' with pity as I weeful grieve And spread thy radiant mantle to receive My voice which rises swiftly to the sky Placid Mary, thou my mother dear, My sustenance, my fortitude must be, And in this fearsome sea my way must steer. If deprivation come to buffet me, And if grim death in agony draws near, Oh, succor me, from anguish set me free. REACTION During his student days Rizal expressed his devotion to his Catholic faith in melodious poetry. One of the religious poem he wrote was entitled To the Virgin Mary. Probably, Rizal wrote it after his ode to the Child Jesus. I pick this poem because it inspired me of Rizal's potential to write poems in his young age. This poem was a good example to the Filipino youths to do more in their studies just like what Rizal did in his childhood days. He can write poems to show his devotion to his......

Summary of Rizal's Essays

...Malolos: Summary and Analysis Jose Rizal’s legacy to Filipino women is embodied in his famous essay entitled, “To the Young Women of Malolos,” where he addresses all kinds of women – mothers, wives, the unmarried, etc. and expresses everything that he wishes them to keep in mind.  SUMMARY “To the Women of Malolos” was originally written in Tagalog.  Rizal penned this writing when he was in London, in response to the request of Marcelo H. del Pilar.  The salient points contained in this letter are as follows: 1. The rejection of the spiritual authority of the friars – not all of the priests in the country that time embodied the true spirit of Christ and His Church.  Most of them were corrupted by worldly desires and used worldly methods to effect change and force discipline among the people. 2. The defense of private judgment 3. Qualities Filipino mothers need to possess – as evidenced by this portion of his letter, Rizal is greatly concerned of the welfare of the Filipino children and the homes they grow up in. 4. Duties and responsibilities of Filipino mothers to their children 5. Duties and responsibilities of a wife to her husband – Filipino women are known to be submissive, tender, and loving.  Rizal states in this portion of his letter how Filipino women ought to be as wives, in order to preserve the identity of the race. 6. Counsel to young women on their choice of a lifetime partner RIZAL’S MESSAGE TO FILIPINO WOMEN Jose Rizal...

The Theme of 'the Predator' in "The Homecoming"

...Harold Pinters, The Homecoming, is about the family as a predator. It is about men and their dependency on certain concepts and ideas for security. It's about their dependency on masculinity for self-reassurance and it's about their dependency on women for emotional reassurance. Without women, they would be lost and without a purpose. This is why the family of Max and his sons get progressively more attached to the character of Ruth as the play progresses, as Ruth replaces the void that Jessie had left, through her death, prior to the play's beginning, and takes on the role that she used to hold. The family then begins to rely on Ruth to reassure them in their roles as 'men', and they begin to do her bidding in order to get things out of her. They essentially begin to pray on her for the emotional security that they so desperately desire and need. This emotional security expresses itself is in the form of sexual and social factors; as a woman (Ruth) both reassures the men of their masculinity (Sexuality) and functions as a status symbol for them. Interestingly enough, even the character of Teddy (who throughout the play is shown as being 'separate' from the family as a whole) can be view as a predator, as he is in a way taking Ruth, or has been, away from the life that she would prefer to lead. Teddy also relies on Ruth for emotional reassurance, but in a much different way from the rest of the family. Teddy however, realises this in the end and leaves both the family and......

Rizal's Life

...Philippines, though copies were smuggled in. Because of this novel, Rizal's return to the Philippines in 1887 was cut short when he was targeted by police. Rizal returned to Europe and continued to write, releasing his follow-up novel, El Filibusterismo (The Reign of Greed) in 1891. He also published articles in La Solidaridad, a paper aligned with the Propaganda Movement. The reforms Rizal advocated for did not include independence—he called for equal treatment of Filipinos, limiting the power of Spanish friars and representation for the Philippines in the Spanish Cortes (Spain's parliament). Exile in the Philippines Rizal returned to the Philippines in 1892, feeling he needed to be in the country to effect change. Although the reform society he founded, the Liga Filipino (Philippine League), supported non-violent action, Rizal was still exiled to Dapitan, on the island of Mindanao. During the four years Rizal was in exile, he practiced medicine and took on students. Execution and Legacy In 1895, Rizal asked for permission to travel to Cuba as an army doctor. His request was approved, but in August 1896, Katipunan, a nationalist Filipino society founded by Andres Bonifacio, revolted. Though he had no ties to the group, and disapproved of its violent methods, Rizal was arrested shortly thereafter. After a show trial, Rizal was convicted of sedition and sentenced to death by firing squad. Rizal's public execution was carried out in Manila on December 30,......

To What Extent Does Pinter Use Comedy to Explore Human Relation in the Homecoming?

...The Homecoming, a two acts play, is sprinkled with diverse elements of comedy. By setting off laughing in the audience, Pinter drives the attention to the instability of characters’ relationships. Yet, the comedy darkens when facing the human perpetual struggle to handle these fragile relations. The Homecoming is articulated by comic cross-talking enlightening human relation. Thus the audience can be amused by the shouts of Teddy hoping to be listened to. The exclamations “She’s my wife! We’re married!” are vain, and even the silence imposed by the pause is not enough to be heard, he has to repeat himself. Pinter by creating this absurd and comic dialogue, in which nobody is listening to anyone, underlines the miscommunication that dominates human relations. If sometimes the protagonists seem to have a pertinent discussion, actions might reveal contradictions. For example, despite the clarity of Ruth’s brief refusal “No, thanks.”, Lenny “takes the glass to Ruth”. Along with inappropriate actions, the unsuitable and vulgar appellation “dirty tart” used by Max to designate his daughter in law creates an awkward mood, hilarious for the audience. Besides, Pinter introduces unexpected changes of topic. Whereas Ruth presents herself, Lenny cuts short by declaring “I’ve been having a bit of rough time with this clock”. The interest switching suddenly from Ruth to Lenny, punctuates the dialogue with off beats. These comic devices are used to reveal the misunderstanding messing up......

Ligawen, Melody Y. Submitted on: February 11, 2016 Early Education The hero’s first teacher was his mother, Dona Teodora. On the age of three, Jose already learned his alphabet, how to pray, and reaching the age of 5, he can read the Holy Bible and he can also write in Spanish. As early as his age, his mother told a story about the “The Young Moth”, which made the profoundest impression on him in the tragic fate of the young moth, which died a martyr to its illusions. When Jose grew older, his parents employed private tutors, Maestro Colestino was Jose’s first private tutor, second private tutor was Maestro Lucas Padua and his third tutor was Maestro Leon Monroy, a classmate of his father, who taught Rizal in Spanish and Latin for five months. Education at Binan, Laguna Five months later, the latter maestro died and Jose was sent to a school in Binan. In June 1869, Jose travelled to Binan, accompanied by Paciano(his older brother). Upon arriving at Binan, Jose lodged at the house of his aunt. Maestro Justiano Aquino Cruz was his first formal teacher.

Rizal's Literary Works

...The vital breath of prudent Education Instills a virtue of enchanting power; She lifts the motherland to highest station And endless dazzling glories on her shower. And as the zephyr's gentle exhalation Revives the matrix of the fragrant flower, So education multiplies her gifts of grace; With prudent hand imparts them to the human race. For her a mortal-man will gladly part With all he has; will give his calm repose; For her are born all science and all art, That brows of men with laurel fair enclose. As from the towering mountain's lofty heart The purest current of the streamlet flows, So education without stint or measure gives Security and peace to lands in which she lives. Where Education reigns on lofty seat Youth blossoms forth with vigor and agility; He error subjugates with solid feet, And is exalted by conceptions of nobility. She breaks the neck of vice and its deceit; Black crime turns pale at Her hostility; The barbarous nations She knows how to tame, From savages creates heroic fame. And as the spring doth sustenance bestow On all the plants, on bushes in the mead, Its placid plenty goes to overflow And endlessly with lavish love to feed The banks by which it wanders, gliding slow, Supplying beauteous nature's every need; So he who prudent Education doth procure The towering heights of honor will secure. From out his lips the water, crystal pure, Of perfect virtue shall not cease to go. With careful doctrines of his faith made sure, The powers of evil he......
