Summary/Abstract: The course in which Albanian literary language is formed has passed through different difficulties. Endeavours of cultural activists, those of pen and ink of Albanian language preceded and prepared terrain for holding of Literature Committee in Shkodra (1916-17), while this Committee has made the most serious endeavour of time for creation of common national language. Gjergj Fishta, one of most influential activists of pen and ink in these processes will develop broad pragmatic activity in mission of Albanian language conservation and cultivation. Following the tradition of writers from Rilindja “Renaissance”, he will work with great patriotic devotion to promote further the work that has been initiated by them in the field of language. Definition one literary language for one nation always has represented and represents difficult and complex issue to be solved, since it presupposes compromise and compromises are never easy. This has been difficult for Albanians, too. Although the decision of the Literary Committee of Shkodra for Elbasan vernacular being common literary language for all Albanians has been accepted, Gjergj Fishta, active member of this Committee, will abandon this decision. Why? This study attempts to find reasons for Fishtas’ distance toward Literary Committees’ of Shkodra decision.
