English / Filipino Readers of Rizal’s Poems for Project Rizal

August 30, 2011

I am preparing copies of Rizal’s poems in English and Filipino versions. But I have yet to check the version of Nick Joaquin because I cannot rely on what I got from the internet. I am going to the National Library to look for the collection of NJ’s translations into English from the original Spanish. I have no problem with the Filipino version now that I got the book recently launched by National Artist in Literature, Virgilio Almario. All the poems that I have in my list for interpretation and reading are in the book of Mr. Almario, as follows: Huling Pahimakas, Sa Filipinas, Awit ni Maria Clara, Bulaklak ng Heidelberg and Sa Kabataang Pilipino. I will try to find time to post all the poems later.

Scheduled to read the poems are: Marot Flores [9.45-11 am], Janet Pinzon [11-12.30 am], Roselle Pineda [1-2:30 pm]; Vim Nadera [3-4:30 pm]. Mi amiga, Belen Calingacion said she may come earlier. Her sked is supposed to be from4.30-6pm. Singit na lang between 2-3pm. I am still looking for someone to read TO THE PHILIPPINES. All of them are from the UP College of Arts and Letters— Speech Comm and Theater Arts and Filipino departments.
