Imposing the standards of academic journals on his newspaper columns he has been criticized for the lack of footnotes, bibliographic references, and a conceptual framework, he is also faulted for allegedly failing to contribute to conceptual and analytic debate in Philippine historiography.

I do appreciate the intent of Ocampo and probably his publishers in coming up with this compilation. Filipinos must know more about Rizal and Ocampo is still young so he has that appeal to our younger generations. There is no question that the book is worth all its awards and accolades on this aspect.

However, being a compilation of previously-released articles, some of which I have already read or knew from my previous Rizal courses in school, I thought that the book would have been more engaging if Ocampo just wrote a Rizal biography using these articles.

I know that it would have taken a lot of efforts on his part but it would not have given me the feeling that everything was just thrown in to the book to earn some easy bucks.

I knew that he already had some detractors regarding the manner of his writing that seemed to have been mostly based on hearsays and he already answered in threatening manner that whoever says that must read for himself the volumes and volumes of letters and monographs, pamphlets, etc that he listed on the last page of the book.

I mean, I appreciate the fact that he listed his sources but I thought that it would have been more professional if not altogether prudent if he included footnotes instead of just claiming that he read this and read that and expect his readers to believe him as if he is the only surviving authority to speak about our national hero. This is my first book by him so I am still to form my impression of him as a writer or a person. However, my initial feeling was that he seemed to me like a lazy historian because if you write about history and you want people to believe you, put your documentations properly and not just write for the sake of shocking your readers.

Also, for me, he seemed to be an arrogant person especially when I got reminded, via some writings in this book, of his debate regarding Rizal sketches that Mr. Manoling Morato born included in his book. The much younger Ocampo accused Morato that those sketches were fake and the poor old man had to defend himself. I am not siding with Morato but I thought that the argument would not have turned ugly if Ocampo just kept silent.

After all, nobody has the monopoly of writing about Rizal and earn some bucks in the process. The generation of today as well as all the future generations must be wary about the books that the latter-day historians like Ocampo claim to be true. In the first place, why remove the overcoat? I grew up in our small town in a Pacific island looking at Rizal statue with the overcoat and it did not affect my admiration and emulation of his traits.

Rizal Without the Overcoat

I thought that the coat reminds us of his sojourns abroad. It might as well be inspiring because most of the young Filipinos today dream of working overseas because of the unavailability of good jobs in the country. So, I'd rather that Rizal keep the coat on. View all 13 comments. Oct 16, Jr Bacdayan rated it liked it. My semester has just ended. I'm getting about two weeks off from the university before another one starts.

I'm going to catch up on my reading list, I've fallen way behind schedule. Anyway, one of my courses this semester was PI or the "Rizal" course. As one of our final requirements, we were required to submit an essay on Ambeth Ocampo's renowned book Rizal Without the Overcoat. Here's what I wrote crammed might be a better word choice Heh heh: My Perception of Jose Rizal a Finally! I used to be a brash and outspoken young man always quick to make assumptions and always fiery with passion for what I deemed was right; even when all I had was a premature conclusion.

I brought this attitude here in our university and was quickly humbled by men and women that maintained their calm and adhered to logic, not sudden whims and misguided passion. This, I said to myself is what I wish to become. I resolutely set to change my ways and actions. To some degree I think I have succeeded. But improving oneself is a continuous and endless process that every individual must aim for. Even our venerated national hero was not the product of biological perfection and natural wisdom.

He slowly, meticulously improved himself with every mistake he made, with every book he read. Like you and me, he is a human being that achieved what he did, not because he is special or was destined by some great prophecy, but because he worked for it.

A good example would be in the field of language. He did not become a polyglot naturally; language did not come easy to him. It was the product of a diligent and willful learning process. In his letters to his sister, he expostulated that while in Germany, he had a hard time learning the native tongue.

Then, on a latter correspondence, he would state he had finally been able to understand everybody but that the problem was not everybody could understand him. This is a clear example of language acquisition through exposure.

As an Organizational Communication major, I have taken several units of Psycholinguistics and can summarily say that this is a normal thing, that Rizal's acquisition of various languages was boosted because he was exposed to them. Filipinos often marvel when they see that Rizal was literate in a handful of languages.

I stated earlier that I learned to see things contextually, and is important to see things that way. He was only a hardworking and ambitious individual who had the opportunity to be exposed to such languages. Rizal worked diligently to become the man he was. This is what they fail to say.

Anybody can be like Jose Rizal. I remember my History 1 class like it was only yesterday. Professor Jerome Ong handled our class superbly and presented History with a certain charm and complete knowledge that my high school history classes had been missing.

I remember learning for the first time that Aguinaldo was responsible for the deaths of several heroes, especially Andres Bonifacio.

It opened my eyes and it was what prompted my love for history. Even as I child I have always been fascinated by the past and all its hidden complexities. Sorry, I digress. We proceeded on the topic of whether Rizal was rightful national hero. Professor Ong gave us the usual Bonifacio was the leader of the revolution, he represented the masses. Rizal was an American-sponsored hero, that he was a conscious hero, the usual UP, Bonifacio-inclined speech. Then he asks us what we think.

Immediately everybody was begging to agree. I could hear their assents and their outbursts at such a travesty. I too was inclined to agree. But then I remembered to look at it objectively and contextually. It is weak to think that we should change our national hero just to fit the mold of the others around us. Nationalism, works and influence are basis for a hero, not the amount on his bank.

If a majority of Filipinos are females, should the National hero be a female? I agree it should be considered, but it should not be the main point.

I guess I agree with Ocampo when he said that even Bonifacio would say that Rizal is the national hero. I do think that the Americans just solidified an already widespread belief.

On Rizal being a conscious hero I ask: Does it matter? So what if he was aware and prepared for what he did? Nobody knows the truth but the man himself. If it is, it only proves that Rizal loved his country more than himself, to those saying that he did it out of vanity, I disagree. Vanity knows nothing but self-preservation. I came out of the class determined to learn more about that topic.

I clearly remember defending Rizal from one of my classmates whom I had the opportunity of sharing a bus ride home with. We spent two hours arguing about that matter on the way to Cavite where we both live, where the Bonifacio-killing Aguinaldo used to live.

It was a long ride home. I came to this PI hundred class knowing that I believed that Rizal was the rightful National hero.

Rizal without the overcoat

Now that we are ending this semester, I would just like to say that I really appreciate the way you handled this course. The way you love to question us and challenge us.

Back then, I remember believing that Rizal is the rightful National hero but I never idolized him or placed him in an unreachable pedestal. I guess it can be attributed to an event in my life that has allowed me to see him for the human being that he is. It was sixth grade I think, I had just transferred to a regular private school in Pasay from an International School near Tagaytay.

I was an English speaking kid who had a really hard time with the Filipino subject. We studied, spoke, wrote in English. We read Mark Twain, H. Wells, and a watered down version of Moby Dick. In short, we studied America.

Although, we did also have world history. Well, to be fair the majority of the students were foreigners. A few years later, I would learn that a year or two after I left, they started integrating the Filipino subject. Oh, well.But he did. Aaron Ariston. Nov 23, Albert rated it really liked it. I agree it should be considered, but it should not be the main point.

Something that I found to be a double-edged sword for the book is its origin. Anyway, one of my courses this semester was PI or the "Rizal" course. This book is Good resource material for those interested in re-learning Rizal the non-traditional way. Raz Mahari. Dec 13, M rated it liked it Shelves:
