Intertextual Review of a Once-Banned Author’s Dramatical Work

Besa Shingjergji


Etëhem Haxhiademi is one of the most distinguished creators of the Albanian Tragedy. He is a classical tragedian appearing in the modern phase of the Albanian literature. The artistic geography of Haxhiademi’s tragedies seizes wide spaces, even crossing inter-balkanic borders. His dramatic work, built according to the models of the classical tragedy and evolving antiquity or mediEvel subjects and even those of the biblical pre-history, became function of the concerning issues which found its parallels in the phenomenon, ideas and problems featuring the reality of the time they were written. Haxhiademi’s literary work, as one of the variants of the literary system, has been built on traces, codes and literary traditions created in the course of time in the Albanian, national literary heritage as well as in the inter-balkanic and international inheritance. This makes his work to be intertextual rather than completely independent. In this study, the rereading of the dramatic work of one of the most outstanding writers of the 30s in the XX century, Etëhem Haxhiademi’s, will be done by presenting his work in rapport with texts belonging to the same system: the literary ones. In these terms, understanding the playwright’s work derives from the intertextuality as well as from the contemporary readers’ re-reading, who, with a cold logic will try to place the 45-year politically imprisoned writer, into the true system of the literary values. The study made use of comparison, analyses and synthesis methods.
