Raak me niet aan! (Noli me tangere)

Noli me tángere by José Rizal is the great novel of the Philippines translated in dutch. A fiercely realistic description of life in the Philippines under Spanish rule in a time of abuse, greed, cruel oppression, torture and executions. But at the same time also an exciting historical novel, a tragic love story and a desperate political statement - full of sarcasm and humor. Because of the sarcastic way in which the immoral priests and rulers are ridiculed, the book grew into a strong weapon in the fight against Spanish tyranny. The revenge of the priests - the conviction and execution of José Rizal - accelerated the fall of the Spanish colonizer.

In the words of José Rizal himself:

'The novel is about many things that have never been touched. ... I have written about the social conditions in the Philippines and the life of the Filipinos. I have told the truth about our beliefs, our hopes, our desires, our complaints, and our concerns. I have tried to show the difference between true religion and the hypocrisy that has impoverished and abused us under that cloak. ... I did not cry about our setbacks, but just laughed about it. Nobody wants to read a book full of tears, and besides, laughter is the best way to hide sadness. The events that I have described have all true and actually happened. "
