Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not)

Jose Rizal

PAPERBACK

December 1, 2006

In more than a century since its appearance, José Rizal's 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.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Editorial Reviews

"A beautiful new translation... Rizal's rich, moving novel...[is] perhaps the most important novel in Philippine literature."
