Translated by: Carmen Depasquale
The Commander and His Family, written by a Knight 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. Contains both the original text by Joseph de Fassion de Sainte-Jay and the English translation.
