Tandang Basio Macunat was mentioned in the novel written by Jose
Rizal--Noli Me Tangere. An excerpt of Charles Derbyshire's translation
on chapter 9 goes:
"When she learned that Basilio had gone to Manila to get his savings
and ransom Juli from her servitude, the good woman believed that the
girl was forever lost and that the devil had presented himself in the
guise of the student. Dreadful as it all was, how true was that little
book the curate had given her! Youths who go to Manila to study are
ruined and then ruin the others. Thinking to rescue Juli, she made her
read and re-read the book called TANDANG BASIO MACUNAT, charging her
always to go and see the curate in the convento, as did the heroine,
who is so praised by the author, a friar."
Find out why Tandang Basio Macunat ignited sharp rebattles from
Filipino journalists at that time. This is an interesting read!
