Description

Le Commandeur dans sa famille que publie Carmen Depasquale est la seule production destinée au théatre rédigée par Saite-Jay. L’oeuvre non datée n’a jamais encore été publiée. Bien que la didascalie intitiale ne le signale pas, l’originalité de cette “comédie francaise est d’avaoir Malte por décor, un environnement d’ailleurs tres elliptiquement esquissé à travers un personnage de Maltais et deux representants de l’Ordre. Cette comédie en prose mele, de toute evidence, à sa structure classique des éléments exotiques liés en partie à la localisation de la “scéne” et à des sujets archaiques banis pas “l’honneteté” de la comédie du siécle de Louis XIV. Francois Moureau, Professeur à la Sorbonne.

The Commander and his Family, written by a Knights of the Langue of Auvergne, illustrates aspects of life in Malta during the eighteenth century. A Commander of the Order is under the spell of a courtesan. Meanwhile, she is also being courted by a young Knight and a Maltese gentleman. Love, intrigue, gambling and debt add to the exotic flavour of this original comedy.

Carmen Depasquale is Head of the Department of French at the University of Malta. After pursuing her literary studies at the Universities of Londonn and Tours, she was awarded her doctorate from Sorbonne University (Paris IV) with her thesis La vie intellectuelle et culturelle des chevaliers francais à Malte au XVIIIe siecle. Her main areas of interest are the works of French Knights of Malta of the eighteenth century and French travel literature on Malta. She has published articles in French, English and Maltese in learned journals and read papers at conferences in europe, the USA and Canada. The title Chevaliere dans l’ordre des Palmes académiques was conferred upon her in recognition of her contribution towards French culture.
