Rizal in Saga
First published in 1996, on the occasion of the centenary of Jose Rizal's death, Nick Joaquin's Rizal in Saga is a biography of the Philippines' premier national hero. Relying foremost on Rizal's own journals and his works, it brings forth Rizal's humanity - his fears, insecurities, influences and the fortitude that ultimately leads him to become, as Joaquin calls him, "the grandest of Filipinos."
This new edition introduced and annotated by Ambeth R. Ocampo contains new photographs from Ocampo's collection as well as other sources to bring Rizal the person and the saga that was his life closer to new student fans.
