Noli Me Tangere by Jose RizalIn more than a century since its appearance, Jose Rizals Noli Me Tangere has become widely known as the great novel of the Philippines. A passionate love story set against the ugly political backdrop of repression, torture, and murder, The Noli, as it is called in the Philippines, was the first major artistic manifestation of Asian resistance to European colonialism, and Rizal became a guiding conscience—and martyr—for the revolution that would subsequently rise up in the Spanish province.

Originally written in Spanish , the book is more commonly published and read in the Philippines in either Tagalog or English. Together with its sequel, El Filibusterismo , the reading of Noli is obligatory for high school students throughout the country. The two novels are widely considered the national epic of the Philippines and are adapted in many forms, such as operas, musicals, plays, and other forms of art. Rizal entitled this novel as such drawing inspiration from John of the Bible , the technical name of a particularly painful type of cancer back in his time, it was unknown what the modern name of said disease was. He proposed to probe all the cancers of Filipino society that everyone else felt too painful to touch. Early English translations of the novel used titles like An Eagle Flight and The Social Cancer , disregarding the symbolism of the title, but the more recent translations were published using the original Latin title.
