Abstract: Carmelo Psaila (1871-1961), aka Dun Karm, as is popularly known, and the important figure of all Maltese literature, and perhaps the most significant reference point of the whole European culture of Malta. Recognized by everyone as the national poet, Dun Karm has become the emblem of distinctive qualities of the island. His poetic activity constitutes the moment of better aesthetic flowering in the Mauritian language. Fully aware of the Italian tradition in Malta, and after having entered with commitment and competently as a poet in the Italian language of mold neoclassical, he gradually began to land steadily towards the literary and spiritual condition of romance, up to that in 1912, while not making any break from his previous experience, he devoted himself to poetry in Maltese. His moment of maximum maturation is characterized by his Foscolian experience. After translating the Sepulchres into Maltese, the poet was committed to composing a long poem, defined by himself the epilogue of the Italian poem and today considered by Maltese critics as the most valid poetic work in Maltese language.
