dc.description.abstractThe years 1838 and 1839 started and ended in Malta as if winter had forgotten what its function really was. What little rain, what clouds beckoned, appeared more derisory than comforting. A sense of defeat, maybe desolation, riveted the people. Wells and cisterns yawned bone dry, the crops withered, farmers had more water in their eyes than in their fountains. Hope and anguish no longer alternating, the people were resigned to a lethal aridity. The torrid summer of 1840 passed, and still no rain-cloud weighted the horizon. A tragic third year introduced drought as the new normality.en_GB
