Caxaro, Pietru, c.1400-1485 -- Criticism and interpretation

|This series of programs offers information about writing in Maltese and how different styles of writing were explored by different Maltese authors throughout various periods in Maltese history.
|This program discusses the writing style of Pietru Kaxaru, a Maltese philosopher and poet. He is so far Malta's first known philosopher, fragments of whose works are extant. His philosophical views and positions qualify him as an honourable adherent of the mediaeval humanist movement. His contribution skilfully stands as a mature reflection of the social and cultural revival of his time. Caxaro's cultural preparation and his humanistic character, together with his philosophy, entirely reflect the peculiar force, functions and needs of a Mediterranean people whose golden age had still to come, but whose mental constitution and mode of expression were readily set. The discovery of the man and his philosophy is immeasurably relevant to further recognition of the wise tenure of an ancient civilization.
