The Loves of Rizal and Other Essays on Philippine History, Art and Public

Title: The Loves of Rizal and Other Essays on Philippine History, Art and Public
Author: Pablo S. Trilliana III
Synopsis: “Chased” rather than “chaste” seems to be a more appropriate description of the national hero’s amorous encounters, considering how women here and abroad were irresistibly drawn to him like moths to the light. His many encounters ranged from the teenager Julia to a string of flirtatious and serious relationships that included his great love, Leonor Rivera. Yet chaste he did remain up until he met Josephine Bracken who became what we call a “live-in” partner. Always underlining Rizal’s romances was his intense devotion to his mother and country. In the final analysis, Rizal never married any of his loves because he had already married his native land.
