About the book:
Rizal has done so many things in Dapitan where he was exiled from 1892 to 1896 – from the uneventful to the exciting, from the mundane to the extraordinary – all deserving to be told. What happened to Rizal in Dapitan? How did his place of exile change him? This book presents an almost month by month account of Rizal’s life in Dapitan. Such a reconstruction makes evident the vacillation in his mental attitude and inclination at various points during his exile. This book brings to light what can aptly be described as Rizal’s lost years in Dapitan.
