Jose Rizal Poems

Title: Jose Rizal Poems
Author: National Historical Commission of the Philippines
Synopsis: A lecture in Spanish on Rizal’s poems delivered in 1935 at the University of the Philippines by Mr. Arsenio P. Dizon, then Professor of Spanish and now Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines, gives us a felicitous appreciation of Rizal’s genius as a poet, for Rizal was pre-eminently a poet, a romantic poet. In translating Rizal’s poems contained in this popular edition, the translator has attempted to ascertain first the author’s exact meaning and then to express it precisely and lucidly with as close adherence to the vocabulary and syntax of the original as English idiom allows. It is the hope of the translator that the reader will take this work as a help to the understanding and appreciation of Rizal’s poems and not a substitute for them.
