The Critical Reception of Gjergj Fishta during 1944 - 1990

Lili Sula


Gjergj Fishta is one of the most important writers of Albanian literature. He holds a central place in the Albanian literary system. Until 1990s, his work was censured creating a typical reception model in our literature at the time; that is the critical ideological reception. The critical reception of Fishta’s work during (1944 – 1990) presents a typical phenomena of a malfunctioning of the scheme of communication and circulation of the artistic value. The literary and religious activity of Gjergj Fishta was anathematized. It was the totalitarian regime’s policy and practice to attack any deviation from the socialist realism platform and/or any religious activity and practice of various religions representatives. What generally characterizes the critical judgment of this period is a poor qualitative and quantitative judgment, the homogenization of the critical reception of the author’s work according to the ideological reception model and the axiomatic formulation of the conclusions without doing an analytical interpretation. The critical reception of Fishta’s work in this period presents one of the anathemized models of the reception of the author, a typical ideological reception model, which had quite a significant impact in the Albanian literary system.
