The Dramaturgy and the Amateur Arberesh Theater

Meli Shopi, Denis Himci


In the framework of the artistic literary creativity of the Arbëresh of Italy, after a relatively long period of silence during the last decades, nowadays it can be noticed a revival of the creative activity of arbëresh poets and writers. Once, in the Arbëresh environments poetry has been more developed, but also Albanian drama originated there, but if we consider that "Emira" of AF Santori actually marked the beginnings of dramaturgy in Albanian. The development of Arbëresh poetry havs been favored by the circumstances connected to the idea that there have always been poets there. However, it should be mentioned that in terms of diversity, Arbëresh literature has never been richer than today. To the volumes of poetry are added further dramatic creations, especially by the comedies of Di Maxhios, the Dushko Vetmos etc., but there is also a development of the short prose. This paper deals with the richness and the linguistic and literary features of the dramatic works of the Arbëresh ,by considering it as a developing genre in the literature of the nineteenth century, but now from a different prespective. The simple, communicative language with lexical richness clearly shows the values and its foundation on the tradition and living Arbëresh culture.
