"In more than a century since its appearance, Jose 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."--Publisher's website
El filibusterismo subversion : a sequel to Noli me tangere by José Rizal( Book )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the spirit of The Count of Monte Cristo and Les MisErables, a major new translation-JosE Rizal's stunning continuation of Noli Me Tangere. JosE Rizal was one of the leading champions of Filipino nationalism and independence. His masterpiece, Noli Me Tangere, is widely considered to be the foundational novel of the Philippines. In this riveting continuation, which picks up the story thirteen years later, Rizal departs from the Noli's themes of innocent love and martyrdom to present a gripping tale of obsession and revenge. Clearly demonstrating Rizal's growth as a writer, and influenced by his exposure to international events, El Filibusterismo is a thrilling and suspenseful account of Filipino resistance to colonial rule that still resonates today

The collected poems : a dual-language edition with parallel text by Marcel Proust( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most complete volume of Proust's poetry ever assembled. As a young man, Proust could not decide if he was a poet or a prose writer. Even after he embarked on his masterful In Search of Lost Time at the age of thirty-seven, he never stopped writing poetry. His verse is playful, filled with affection and satire, and is peppered with witty barbs at friends and people in his social circle of aristocrats, writers, musicians, and courtesans. Few of the poems presented here under the editorship of Harold Augenbraum, founder of the Proust Society of America, have ever been published in book form or translated into English until now. In this dual-language edition with parallel text, Augenbraum has brought together twenty renowned poets and poetry translators to bring Proust's exuberant verse back to life."--Book Flap
