Albanian and English Literature in Light of Comparative Reports

Vjollca Dibra

Abstract


In light of comparative literature studies, relations between English Literature and Albanian Literature have been treated little and partially. Furthermore, to date, these studies almost never exceeded the level of monitoring and papers, and no monographic and panoramic level. In this regard, in my thesis, I will emphasize and analyze the relations:
o Short history of relations between the two literatures;
o Critical literary and historic-literary opinion about these relations;
o Kadare’s approach on Shakespeare, Joyce and Orwell;
o Similarities, influences and contextual basis;
o The prospect of Albanian-English literary developments in terms of giving and receiving.
Relations between the two literatures will be seen increasingly on the basis of comparative literature, targeting works and representative personalities of both sides, the respective literatures, as in literary-historical field, as well as in literary-theoretical field. Obviously critical and theoretical thinking on literature (Albanian as well as English) determines and reflects the cooperative levels between them, but the comparative methodology in a way sets a hierarchy of values, knowledge and recognition between them. The most significant of these literary relations today is especially the mutual translation.
