-- In his latest book, Alfred Vassallo describes true and unique love as holy and happens only once. He strongly pressurises his mind not to confuse between love and lust and explains that the gift of love is a gift most precious.
The capacity to love someone truly must not be confused with other emotions. Love is inherent in all human cultures which make it difficult, puzzling, ambiguous, and much more complex to establish.
His strong emotions are felt enormously as all words written derived from incisions of his heart.
Born 11th April 1956 in Sliema, Malta, Alfred Vassallo produced and directed several plays as a semi-professional. His productions included, amongst others: "The Exorcism", "Equus", "Night Must Fall", "Who Killed Agatha Christie", "The Island", "Night Mother", "Who's On First" and "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs." These were all staged at The Manoel Theatre, the national theatre of Malta.
He was also employed by the Colchester Co-Operative drama group, "Scene Around", as a director. The Co-Op drama group produced several plays and took part in two drama festivals in Colchester and Ipswich finishing second for both productions which were "Just a Song at Twilight" and "Savoury Meringue".
He wrote various plays, documentaries and poetry for radio. He also wrote the lyrics to "I Am All Alone" sung by Keith Russell.
Alfred maintains that he is not a ‘true’ poet as he doesn’t follow any particular poetry styles. True Poetry is a piece of literature written by a poet in meter or verse expressing various emotions which are expressed by the use of a variety of different techniques including metaphors, similes and onomatopoeia.
