Features of the Modern Albanian Novel
by, Dr. Ermir NIKA
In the efforts of invoking the part of world novels, and especially in the appearance of modernism in this genre, we have managed to penetrate in the developing of the novel, where we got to know some of the worldly experiences in this direction, be it in Germany, as well as in the United States of America. Further on, these processes would not only interfere naturally, but they would also renovate time after time, even during European literature developments in general, and specifically in Albanian literature. Thus, due to literature and the number of materials referring to these periods, we have been able to master a clear picture of the cultural panorama, nationally and internationally, regarding some of the key moments, which thanks to their main protagonists, made it possible for the Albanian novel of postwar, to not fit only in the inset of semantic creations, but to also come closer to the most advanced models of writings of the time, and to follow its artistic and national originality, as well as to become part of the process of aesthetic and literary evolution in international level. The main aim in fulfilling this work is the research in the directions that Albanian literature of postwar took, as well as the definition and the assessment of mutual points that stood out in the process of evolution of our national literature, as an integral part of supranational culture and literature. One of the main features that can be noticed in this period is the unnatural detachment of literature from its tradition and powerful impact, which is also unnatural, and what also practiced on it, the creative experience of the method of socialist realism. However, this whole movement did not happen while detached from the developments and transformations that the literary process incurred in Europe and beyond. It was exactly the models and the climate dominating in the world of European and worldly literature, the main factor that manifested its effects and impact during Albanian literature developments.
