Sir Michelan­gelo Re­falo Sixth Form com­mem­o­rates Shake­speare

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Depart­ment of English and Mal­tese at Sir Michelan­gelo Re­falo Sixth Form, co-or­di­nated by Florence Gar­cia and Bernardette Gatt, lec­tur­ers in Mal­tese, has been work­ing un­tir­ingly on its ini­tia­tive to com­mem­o­rate the 400th an­niver­sary of the lit­er­ary ge­nius Wil­liam Shake­speare.

The Soiree, Tiżwiqa Let­ter­arja u Artis­tika will be held on Fri­day, 18 Novem­ber in the hall of the Min­istry for Gozo. Two scenes from Shake­speare’s tragedies Ham­let and Macbeth will be reen­acted. Por­tia’s fa­mous mercy pas­sage and a Bi­b­li­cal love di­a­logue will be a fit­ting trib­ute to the Ex­tra­or­di­nary Ju­bilee of Mercy. Clas­si­cal danc­ing and singing, po­etry and prose recitals will be the added spice for the even­ing.

The main­stay of the event will be the launch­ing of the po­etry an­thol­ogy Fjuret id-Demm writ­ten by An­abelle Portelli and pub­lished by the In­sti­tute. This col­lec­tion of po­ems in­te­grates joy and suf­fer­ing in a bril­liant way. An­abelle who is cur­rently study­ing Mal­tese at Ad­vanced Level has an ev­i­dent artis­tic tal­ent and is in search of a po­et­i­cal iden­tity.

Pro­mot­ing stu­dents’ skills and tal­ents, not only aca­demic ones, is cru­cial for the holis­tic vi­sion of our In­sti­tute and vi­tal for the re­al­i­sa­tion of th­ese young peo­ple’s as­pi­ra­tions. Head­mas­ter, Daniel James Cas­sar and Deputy Heads Joanne Ghirxi, Linda At­tard Said, Joany Mizzi and Joseph Xerri to­gether with An­abelle’s Mal­tese tu­tor Bernardette Gatt have gone out of their way to sup­port this bud­ding poet.
