Abstract  

As typically Mediterranean, Maltese Literature gives paramount importance to the natural environment and identifies its transcendental significance. Literature of nature is somehow an offshoot of literature inspired by religious faith. This essay explores the role played by nature in the works of Dun Karm (1871–1961), Malta’s national poet. His ecological awareness is considered as typifying an attitude which emanates from a deep love towards the country and from the need to discover meaning in the outer world. Poetry of an apparently descriptive character is subsequently interpreted in existential terms.
