The Maltese Poets Association (Għ.P.M.) has published an Anthology in Esperanto with the works of some of its members. In all, 42 members took part. The poems vary in the theme tackled as well as in the style adopted. The anthology has a Critical Preface by Profs. Oliver Friggieri that sheds a light on Maltese contemporary poetry.
This anthology could materialise through the help of the Maltese Esperanto Society. All works were translated into Esperanto by the honorary member of our society, Dr. Karmenu Mallia.
The poets taking part are Abela Therese, Aquilina Sunny, Attard Mario, Dr. Attard Cassar Emmanuel, Dr. Axiaq Joseph, Bezzina Mario F., Bianchi Carmel, Borg Ġorġ, Busuttil Amanda, Camilleri Miriam, Caruana Mary Grace, Caruana Peter A., Cauchi Carmel G., Cini Godwin, Fabri Noel, Farrugia Anthony, Grech Lino, Grech Raymond, Grech Sergio, Lanfranco Guido, Mallia John, Dr. Mangani Paul S., Massa Alfred, Micallef Jane, Muscat David, Pace Therese, Palma Alfred, Saliba Paul, Sammut Patrick, Spiteri Pio, Vella Therese, Dr. Zammit Tabona Joe, Bezzina Charles, Oliver Friggieri, Mons. Dr Amante Buontempo, Magro Charles, Caruana Toni, Chetcuti Ġuże', Ellul Galea Karmenu, Cini Tarcisio, Patri Hugh Mallia O.Carm., and Ellul Godwin.
It is worth reminding that this is the second Anthology of the same sort published by the Għaqda Poeti Maltin.
