Abstract: The series discusses prominent Maltese writers who contributed to the Maltese language and literature over the past decades.
Description: An in depth analysis of Manuel Dimech (25 December 1860, Valletta – 17 April 1921, Alexandria, Egypt) who was the pre-eminent social reformer in pre-independence Malta, a philosopher, a journalist, and a writer of novels and poetry. Born and brought up in extreme poverty and illiteracy, Dimech returned time and time again to the prisons, mostly on theft charges. At seventeen years of age he even committed murder. In the prisons, however, he studied hard and became skilful in letters and various arts. When finally set in liberty, he engaged himself in an energetic and enterprising public life by teaching and publishing. He aimed at an overall transformation of society in which the poor and abject would be given a rightful place as citizens of a free republic. Having incurred the wrath of the dominant political forces and the privileged classes, Dimech was permanently exiled from the island and was buried in Egypt in an unmarked grave.
