Charles Casha started writing in the beginning of the 1960s. He created Fra Mudest in 1967, a character which is considered a classic icon of Maltese literature. When writing children’s literature, Casha blends both his creative skills as well as his teaching background. In his adult writing, he focuses on bringing out the social elements through his personal experiences. His poetry is concise and to the point and tackles mostly the themes of spirituality, existence and love.
