F. Sionil José ¸ 7 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¸ F. Sionil José FREE READ Tree By F. Sionil José Ow his social class by relatives and doting servants who have served his family all their lives It is also a story of oppression and compassion Book 16 for 2014 This is the second book of the Rosales Saga This is also my second Jose In contrast to Po On I had a hard time reading this book because I was greatly disturbed by the amount of cruelty inflicted by one of the main characters to his fellow Filipino I had a hard time reading about a master being cruel to his servants The idea of having servants also distressed me since in our house we don t have household help In our house we do our own chores prepare our own food wash our own clothes and the like And we were also taught by my parents to be courteous and respectful to service employees janitors waiters etc And so with each page where Espiridion had an easy time slapping or whipping his servants whenever he felt like it I shuddered and cried inside I wonder what happened or who did what to Espiridion Why s he like that What or who made him cruel abrasive and untrusting With reference to page 125But maybe the reason why I had such a hard time reading the book is that Filipinos stepping on or maltreating fellow Filipinos just to get ahead in life is still the reality maybe I knew this is the reality maybe I was affected by having to read about it even during my down time when I was supposed to be engaged in leisurely reading What F Sionil Jose wrote about the master servant dynamics land grabbing the rich getting richer and the poor barely getting by each day are things that we witness each day It was a hard read for me but it was a great read too I have much respect for F Sionil Jose for helping us not to forgetFavorite Lines I did not uite understand what it was all about so I tugged at Father s hand He did not mind me he went his way I did not attend Ludovico s funeral but Sepa who was fond of him did and she described how Ludovico was brought to church without the pealing of bells wrapped in an old buri mat and slung on a pole carried by his father and a farmer neighborAnd only afterward did I understand why there was not even a wooden coffin for Ludovico why the next harvest which might be bountiful would be meaningless I remembered Ludovico s mother so tiny and thin and overworked her wracking cough her pale tired face and the ripening grain which she would neither harvest nor see p 39I was still gazing at the delta darkening swiftly when I heard Father cursing behind me Turning around I saw him walk up to Old David his hand rose then descended on the old man s face but Old David holding on to the reins of the big chestnut horse and his own bony mare stood motionless unappalled before the hand the bludgeon that was shot up then cut into his withered face once p 91He finally concluded God forbid that I will ever have ties with foreigners who ravaged this beautiful Philippines p 93At that time when no explanations were possible I was hurtling back to those blurred yesteryears to that conspicuous Rizal Day program long ago when as the main speaker he discoursed despicably on all foreigners when on his election platform he damned all Chinese And now in the privacy of his home in his own room were these strangers laughing with him as if they were his long lost brothers p 97 You are going to die His head drooped He eased himself down the pallet and paced the stone floor Yes but I ll die decently he said pausing He leaned on his elbows and faced me Isn t that what we should live for His uestions had a uality of coldness of challengeI swung down the pallet and beamed a ray across the black void to the open door His letters were in my hand I walked away without answering him Angel my servant my friend p 108 I d rather stay here Apo Old David said his eyes pleading I was born here I ll die here p 115He dug out his gold watch from his waist pocket You have plenty of time he said Now listen You are young and you don t know many things but do remember this you are alone in this earth Alone You must act for yourself and no other Kindness is not appreciated any nor friendship Think of yourself before you think of others It s a cruel world and you have to be hard and cruel too They will strangle you if you don t strangle them first Trust no one but your judgement and even then don t trust too much p 125Yet much as I am sure of these I also know that the present this now is yesterday and anything and everything that I find detestable are outgrowths of something eually detestable in this not so distant pastI wish I could be honest and true but truth as I see it is not something abstract a pious generality it is justice at work righteous demanding disciplined sincere and unswerving otherwise it is not it cannot be truth at allBut the past was not permanent nor the present who was it who said you cannot cross the river twice Motion change birth and death these are the imperatives what a horrible heavy word of life p 133I continue for instance to hope that there is reward in virtue that those who pursue it should do so because it pleases them This then becomes a very personal form of ethics or belief premised on pleasure It would reuire no high sounding motivation no philosophical explanation for the self and it desires are animal basic the desire for food for fornication If this be the case then we could very well do away with the church with all those institutions that pretend to hammer into the human being attributes that would make him inherit God s vestments if not His kingdom p 134Alas I cannot be this man although sometimes I aspire to be like him I am too much a creature of comfort a victim of my past Around me the largesse of corruption rises as titles of vaunted power and I am often in the ranks of princes smelling the perfume of their office I glide in the dank nocturnal caverns that are their mansions and gorge on their sumptuous food and I love it all envy them even for the ease which they live without remorse without regret even though they know I suspect they do that to get to this lofty status they had to butcher perhaps not with their own hands their own hapless countrymen p 134Who was Don Vicente after all I should not be angered then when men in the highest places sworn to serve this country as public servants end up as millionaires in Pobres Park while using the people s money in the name of beauty the public good and all those shallow shibboleths about discipline and nationalism that we have come to hear incessantly I should not shudder any in disgust or contempt when the most powerful people in the land use the public coffers for their foreign shopping trips or build ghastly fascist monuments in the name of culture of the Filipino spirit I see artists even those who cannot draw a hand or a face pass themselves off as modernists and demand thousands of pesos for their work which of course eually phony art patrons willingly give And I remember Tio Marcelo how he did not hesitate to paint calesas and in his later years even jeepneys so that his work would be seen and used and not me a miser s gain in some living room to be viewed by people who may not know what art is I hear politicians belching the same old clich s and I remember Tio Doro and how he spent his own money for his own candidacy and how he had bowed to the demands of change When I see justice sold to the highest bidder I remember Tio Baldo and how he had lost So honesty then and service are rewarded by banishment and people sell themselves without so much ado because they have no beliefs only a price p 134 135 the-holy-habit-my-love-affair-and-break-up-with-the-convent is also a story of oppression and compassion Book 16 for 2014 This

Sionil José Tree belongs to Francisco Sionil Jose's largest body of work known as the Rosales novels Like much of his fiction it depicts man's continuing a This is a story of a heartless selfish father whose life is examined through the eyes of his 18 yo only child the unnamed narrator It covers the time when the narrator is still a young boy up to the time that he is a college student and he has to come back to his hometown to bury his father The homecoming triggers the flurry of memories involving the people in his town eg his father uncles aunts cousins teachers servants tenants and even his first love In the center of the town is a huge Balete ficus tree This century old tree becomes the silent witness to all the momentous events that transform the town his family and even himself The story is supposed to be the continuation of the Book 1 in the series Dusk 5 stars However there is a gap in the story that left many unanswered uestions even after reading the entire second book For example what happened to Don Jacinto the rich man in Book 1 and how did Espiricion his son become just the encargador caretaker of the eually rich man Book 1 in Book 2 Why does Espiridion feel indebted to Don Vicente that the former does not want to displease even to slight the latter I thought that the a short back story to bridge this gap could have made this Book 2 interestingHowever looks like the story is tailored as a metaphor in itself of the Balete tree Each chapter or a couple of them tells a separate story of a person in the town with the boy seems to be
