Summary/Abstract: In analogy with the European novel, in its beginnings, the Albanian historical novel, was written with romantic consciousness, but to the last one, this romantic spirit was saved for a long time, for political reasons and it is present even today, not simply for political but also existential reasons. The most innovator example, in this direction, constitutes in Kadare's work. But a new dimension to the Albanian historical prose marked also the novel "Krastakraus" by Bilal Xhaferri. In the novel “Syte e Simonides”, written also by Dhimitër Shuteriqi, we can find the adaption of topics and formality, in the terms of reality and subjectivity. Another author who has enriched the fund of Albanian historical novel of this period is also Uran Butka with his work "Miti I Haxhi Qamilit". The researcher Adem Jakllari believes that in today’s Albanian literature can also be talked about another typology which is the historical crossed novel. The complete sign of this type can be found in the novel “Te jetosh ne ishull” by Ben Blushi. So, in the early of the 21st century the Albanian historical novel is enriched with elements of modernity which are represented today, everywhere in the global literature.
