Symbolism in the cover design of El Filibusterismo
Transcript of Symbolism in the cover design of El Filibusterismo
Rizal said that the complicity of the priests in the Cavity mutiny was in doubt and it hopes that Spain would someday clear their names. Rizal committed historical inaccuracies. The printed novel lacked a foreword and a warning to save on the printing cost. The foreword talked about Filibusterism and that it is used by the Spanish authorities to frighten people into silence.
The novel was dedicated to the memory of the three martyred secular priests, Fathers Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos and Jacinto Zamora.
The reformist community in Barcelona praised the novel saying that it is comparable to the works of Alexander Dumas such as the Count of Monte Cristo from which the novel received inspiration.
El Filibusterismo's printing was funded by Rizal pawning his jewels and proceeds from the annotated Sucesos and some from basa but it was not enough. Rizal was tempted to burn the manuscript when his funds were not enough. Valentin Ventura heard about the hardships of Rizal and sent him the needed amount to complete the printing of the book.
