Autograph Sentiment signed: “With beautiful desires/ Gorg Pisani/ [word(s) at lower left-hand corner difficult to decipher]/ 5-2-'74”, in Maltese, translated in full, in blue ink, 3x1¾. Gorg Pisani (1909-1999) was a Maltese writer whose work focused on the beauty and serenity of the island of Gozo as well as its rich history. After graduating from the Lyceum Gozo, Pisani joined the Capuchin Franciscan Friars as a novitiate, but eventually left the order to first work as a teacher, and then as a government translator and co-editor of the Bulletin of the Maltese Information Service in Valletta. While he was completing advanced studies in literature and theology, he began writing poetry with the encouragement of Gozoan novelist and poet Luigi Vella. In 1945, his compilation The Easter of Youth was published. Pisani went on to write myriad poems, producing four collections of poetry in all. In addition to his impressive poetic output, Pisani published many novels and short stories, a few of which include Carol Spring (1947), Lighting and Rainbow (1976), and Apoteosi (1978). Lightly toned. Ink markings on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
