Abstract: Guze Muscat Azzopardi (1853 -1927), born at Qormi, is one of the more colourful personalities in Maltese literature. His literary activity is rather vast and embraces various genres. Like most writers of his time, he is the author of works both in Italian and in Maltese, but it is mainly his output in Maltese that justifies his fame. As a versatile journalist he contributed considerably towards the popular and semi-literary rehabilitation of the language. In this respect his contributions to Ol-Habib, launched in 1912 with the specific aim of providing the people with valid reading material in Maltese, are the most significant. He is closely connected with the foundation of the Gnaqda talKittieba tal-Malti (1920) and was its first president.
