The work of Malta’s first recognised female poet Mary Meilak. She was born in 1905 in a time when the female voice was not the most heard in the country, Meilak was pretty much the only feminine voice in Maltese romantic poetry. The collection is named after her poem “Dawra Misterjuża” which translates into ; ”A Mysterious Journey” which is the perfect example of her fantastical view of the world around her.

“Jekk jien nghidilkom illi b’mohhi nimxi, Wisq aktar minn b’saqajja”

“If I tell you that I’ve been walking much more with my mind than with my legs”

Materials and techniques:
