Abstract: Guze Ellul Mercer (1897 -1961), born at Msida, may give the impression that he is only interested in narrating a simple story, whereas the deeper layers of his prose, always lucid and conveniently realistic, betray his search for the hidden truth of his characters. He participates in various ways in the popular trends of Maltese narrative works of the first half of the twentieth century, a period which combined the writer's inner need of self-expression with the historical necessity of rediscovering the old, predominantly unwritten language and remoulding it into a sufficiently respectable literary vehicle.
